It all began when a cocktail waitress and a bar back realized they had more in common than just drinking. Melissa Moshé & Tom Mandulak met as co-workers in 2002 at a bar in the East Village of New York City. Tom had just started playing cello and Melissa had casually written a couple of songs - so it seemed completely reasonable that they start a band. They named it Table Twelve to pay homage to their \"careers\" in the service industry. They performed all over the city - including the \"summer subway tour\" which was Melissa\'s brilliant idea to perform at various subway stops throughout downtown manhattan - admission was the cost of a metrocard ride. After many years of playing together, performing, laughing and fighting like an old married couple Melissa & Tom were forced to separate due to geographical differences - Tom still resides in New York City and in late September 2005 Melissa returned home to Los Angeles.
Melissa has recently teamed up with Kristy McInnis (drums), Marika Tjelios (producer/bass)and Hope Easton (cello). The four girls have been playing at various venues in the Los Angeles area performing both old school table twelve songs, as well as new material Melissa has recently written.
hope to see you at a show and enjoy the album!!
