Rooted in Norfolk, Virginia, the nine-piece band went separate ways for college, but quickly learned to keep their party infused energy a priority. Reviving the “Norfolk Sound,” Major and the Monbacks is comprised of four vocalists, a horn section, and even a hype man. Despite the challenge of coordinating a large group, the band has made quite a name for itself. “Monback Mania” spread like wildfire through their hometown, and is quickly consuming the east coast. The Monbacks have played shows, festivals, and colleges throughout the Mid-Atlantic, earning them VEER Magazine’s nomination for best indie-pop band in Hampton Roads, as well as nominations for Song and the Year and Best Live Performer. After years of touring, a five song EP and 2 singles, the Monbacks are out of college and ready to bust open the music scene with their 60s-infused, southern twang, R&B tunes.
