Monk's Wine is on fire! A band that plays music, it's as simple as that. Though Monk's Wine is anything but simple. Born in 2009 from an erupting volcano and dragon's blood, they burst onto the scene with a ferocity known only by professional wrestlers.
Sam Zlotky, drummer and heart-throb, displays technical proficiency and a knack for making the most out of a skeleton kit. With very few drums he creates a solid pedestal for the band to stand on. Fast or slow, loud or soft, Sam will keep you coming back for more with the skillful element he brings to Monk's Wine.
Jarrod Guth, guitarist and occasional neurologist, melts faces and sets fire to the music with his weaving guitar lines, tasteful solos, and fingers of lightning. Boldly going where no guitar player has gone before, Jarrod takes you on a journey of bliss and sadness, of light and dark, with rest stops in between for a Twix bar. Because everybody loves a Twix, and everybody loves Jarrod.
Ashley Reynolds, pianist and lead vocalist, moonlights as a thistle sifter for a highly respected thistle firm. Pounding ivory and ebony until his fingers bleed, Ashley presents the crowd with the voice of Monk's Wine. A voice of reason yet zany irresponsibility. Leading the band into the fray of battle, he charges mightily, head high and proud, to bring unheard musical legend and diamond tears to your eyes.
Monk's Wine has developed a following of "Winos" in their local area, and continue to surprise those poor unknowing souls in the music scene. Whether in the middle of a metal show or at a retirement community, Monk's Wine will leave you wanting more. Not only will they oblige and give you more, they will serve it with a heaping pile of awesome at no additional charge.
