Mel Williams started his stage career in the 50s on ABC TV as a regular on a show called “The Sunday Break.” At fourteen he had his own skiffle group and was an avid fan of Elvis and home grown Lonnie Donegan. In 1961 with his brother Ron he left the Merchant Navy to start performing Rock and Roll in Beirut, obviously the first to do so. They toured the Middle East taking in Egypt, Jordan, Baghdad, Turkey, Greece, and ended up in Israel. From there to Paris where they had several records and appeared at The Olympia, The Casino de Paris worked with Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, and toured with the Legendry Gene Vincent. In England in 1964 they were signed to Mickie Most and their Manager was the famed Peter Grant of Led Zeplin fame. They performed with most of the 60s greats and even returned to Paris Olympia to open for the Rolling Stones. In 66 Mel made a comedy musical duo with his drummer John Lennox and did the summer season in Blackpool with Dennis Lotis and Englebert Humperdink.

The duo became a trio “You Me and Him” and toured Europe ending up with a two year run at the famous “Crazy Horse Saloon”

Mel went on to perform at “The Lido” and with his ex. a Bluebell girl they went with the show to Buenos Aires. In no time he had hit records including a number one, and his own TV show. Four years later he returned to England and was commissioned by Hanna Babera to write a musical including the favorites Yogi Bear and Boo Boo, The Flintstones and Huckleberry Hound, he wrote the show and co. directed it. The “Yogi Bear Show” toured Great Britain and ended up at the Victoria Palace London. After engagements all over Europe with a new partner a comedy act again Williams and Carr they set off for a six months tour in the U.S.A.

In 74 Mel decided to move to Spain and became the Entertainments Manager for Holiday Club International for Southern Spain, The Balearics, and Morocco. Mel speaks fluent Spanish and French, good German and fair Dutch and Italian. He prepared shows and performed as well for eight years before starting a brand new chapter in Puerto Banus Marbella. With his own band he went back to his roots of Rock and Roll. He had his own Beach bar, “Mel’s” and his own Night Cub “Mel’s” Another great success was “Banana Beach” where more stars than can be mentioned just jumped up to perform. Mel went on to write two more musicals for children, Professor Fossil and Don Santa Cruz, which he took to the U.S. Virgin Island of San Croix for a four-month season.

He became a great friend of his 50s idol Lonnie Donegan and was very proud to sing at the Royal Albert Hall at Lonnie’s memorial concert along with names such as Van Morrison, Roger Daltry, and Joe Cocker. He can still be heard at the top spots of Marbella and is also the resident MC and performs for Harley Davidson European events. H.O.G.

                    He has never stopped singing and his CDs like his book, aptly called “Nearly Famous” never stops selling. His trio with two very talented girls “The Rock Pack” brings the 50s back to life in sound and costume. His solo show “An audience with Mel Williams” is at times hilarious and at times very moving, but with his unique blend of music and nostalgia it is at all times extremely entertaining..
