Biography

The Monroes emerged from the Dutch Rock & Roll-capitol Groningen. But they’re not just another garageband, they make good popsongs which give you the same desolate melancholic feeling you get from a David Lynch-movie. They make popmusic inspired by fifties R&B and sixties’ soul, fuelled up with fuzzguitar, garage and surf wich they reproduce with their vintage Fender-gear. Front woman is beautiful singer Josje. With her characteristeric singing she seduces every crowd-member. Listen and get lost in the musical cultmovie called the Monroes...
The Monroes played at various festivals such as Eurosonic, Metropolis, Bevrijdingsfestival Groningen and at VPRO's Club3voor12. They played a lot of clubs in Holland including De Melkweg in Amsterdam and supported some of their own heroes like Dan Auerbach, The Detroit Cobra’s and Claw Boys Claw. Nowadays they are a returning sensation in clubs as The Dirty Water Club in London and La Fleche d'Or in Paris.
The long-awaited debut-album, mixed by garage-guru Olaf Veenstra from Green Hornet will be released in oktober 2009. Until that time The Monroes will continue to play their trashy soulful garagepop all over Europe...
