Record Label: Transistor Sound
The debut album by Monophonics!
“One of the best live soul bands I have ever seen!” – Al Bell
"Monophonics is a prime example of the talent spewing forth from the streets of San Francisco and the musical standards set by the Bay Area for many decades. Since forming in 2005, Monophonics has become the hottest funk band in the Bay Area with their retro sound, style, and approach stemming from the late 1960’s and 1970’s. Winners of SF Weekly’s “Best of the Bay” Award for Funk/Soul/R&B band and featured in Relix Magazine’s “On The Rise” column, a new album and tour will ensure that 2010 is the breakout year for the band. Since releasing their debut album “Playin and Simple” in September 2007, the band’s popularity has grown thanks to performances at such major festivals as New Orleans Jazz Fest, High Sierra Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival and Las Tortugas Festival.” – Afrobeat-Music
