Nick Mello

Percussion Coordinator Nick Mello has been a percussionist since he was 13 years old. His first experience with performing was with the Blue Devil C Corps. From there his love of playing music lead him to the CHS Symphonic and Marching Bands and the Blue Devil B Corps in his high school years. His love of rhythm has been the reason he has continued to perform with the San Francisco Renegades, as well as various Rock, Blues and Symphonic bands throughout the east bay since graduating from CHS in 1997.

Nick’s love of music has been a driving force in his life creating wonderful memories, opportunities to travel the country and world, and lead him to incredible, lifelong friendships.
