"Thee Monarchy V Growing In The Right Direction"

"Thee Monarchy V Growing In The Right Direction"
"I don't know about you but last week was a taxing one for me. It's tough work making the world go round, you know (wink). As is the nature of creatures like us, I didn't need to wind down. Shit, I needed to let loose.

And how many other ways are there to fully enjoy the sensation of all that pressure working its way out of your system than attending a quality live show? Not too many that are legal. So last Friday, I gathered a gang of cohorts and headed to the Copper Rocket Pub to catch The Delusionaires and Thee Monarchy V.

I've been watching Jacksonville's mod garage-rockers Thee Monarchy V develop for some months now. When I saw them perform for the first time last year, I loved the idea and the energy but the execution left something to be desired. But I'm pleased to report that this last show found them in very fit form.

Because Thee Monarchy V are now much more cohesive as a unit, the scrap and thrash of their sound bangs with more purpose. The crashing drums and flat electric buzz of the two-guitar attack rocked the room to a feverish pitch. And The Delusionaires' front-man Aaron Jarvis put on a spirited routine by singing a song with them, effectively making the performance space spill out onto the floor.

During the final song of their set, guitarist Charles climbed onto our table and ripped some fine licks up close and personal. Stepping over my shoulder, he joined vocalist/guitarist Adam and bassist Jon who were already standing and playing on the neighboring booth. And after drummer/vocalist Dennie hurdled his kit (hitting both cymbals by throwing down his sticks in mid-leap), this glorious spectacle culminated in all four bodies on the floor. Now that's fucking rock 'n' roll." - Orlando Citybeat Review

"Next on the bill was Thee Monarchy V. They were a five piece who were wearing matching red and black outfits. It was very reminiscent of the Hives in appearance, but with more of a 70’s vibe. I really enjoyed their set. The music just grabs a hold of you and shakes you. I don’t think my head stopped boppin' or my foot stopped stompin' the entire set. They play good music that makes you feel good, and just appreciate music again. The drummer did a lot of the lead vocals and one of the guitar players supplied the rest. I’d definitely like another dose of this."

Bio

Thee Monarchy V (that's V as in 5) have been bringing your dad's brand of Punk Rock to all the boys and girls in Florida for roughly 3 years. With their scattershot shows up and down the east coast, many people carry the flag of Thee M5 high. Known for their raucous stage show and explosive music the boys never fail to please. Whether it is Charles buzzing his way around the stage with his homemade fuzz box and Vox guitar, Jon thudding away on his big old bass, Adam screeching while strumming away at his Guild, or Dennie leaping over his drum set to come crashing to the front of the stage, audiences are never quite sure what's coming next or what to make of it. Are they a full fledge Punk Rock band or a 60s fueled pop quartet? Thee Monarchy V don't care what you call them, they just call themselves Good Time Rock and Roll!
