he name of the band is a refererence to a Henry James quote where he refers to Tolstoys War and Peace as a "loose baggy monster". Meaning, a bunch of ideas that never solidify to a common theme. True to their name, Loose Baggy Monster flits around from theme to theme, funk to rock to reggae to a heavy rock originals that will blow your ass right out of the water. It is a variety act in it's infant stages, I couldn't help thinking I was catching what might one day be a legendary band in it's purest state. Check it out, if you are a diverse music lover, you might find yourself entertained for more than 20 minutes for a change. - Jambase.com

The band chose the name Loose Baggy Monster because, as defined by Henry James, a "loose baggy monster" is (deep breath) a vast, encyclopedic compendium of whatever seems to have crossed the mind, and seems to have been written and edited (or not edited) on the principle that bigger is better, more means more important, and this results in a big psychedelic jumble of characters, anecdotes, jokes, soliloquies, reminiscences and footnotes, uproarious and mind-boggling, but also a bit arbitrary and self-indulgent.

Loose Baggy Monster is a 6 piece group based in Lexington KY that formed in 2006. The Monster plays an eclectic mix of original music including red-blooded all-American rock, southern rock, reggae, funk, soul, acid rock, and blues. They are currently taking a short break from gigging to finish their debut album that is yet to be titled and in the process they're making some pretty groovy YouTube videos.

At shows, Loose Baggy Monster plays not only their original tunes but also an eclectic mix of choice covers by infamous and iconic artists such as Jethro Tull, Jimi Hendrix, Cake, and Free just to name a few.

The Monster has been called "...a variety show " and this is undoubtedly true because we are sure to play something that tantalizes your musical palate at one point and then we're on to the next musical tangent. This concept has proven effective in captivating audiences from start to finish.
