The Bionic Monks are a different story as far as bands go. Eric [bass, lead vocals] had been in the music scene in chicago years ago playing guitar and drums for punk/metal bands but wound up getting out of it due to marraige and then sons. He still messed around writing music with an acoustic over the years but left it at that to be a dad.
The sons, Jeremy [drums12 yrs at the time] and Justin [guitar, back vocals 15 yrs old at the time], wound up following dad in his love for rocking and it did'nt take much to convince him to start a band with them. Eric started teaching Justin the guitar and Jeremy the drums. The first jam they put together was out in the pole barn and it went on and on but the boys had a blast and were hooked.
Jeremy had gone on to big things in high school music and is now in the US Air Force. . After some lineup changes, ,Monks have settled into the 3 piece wall of sound consisting of Eric Herb (Bass/Vocals), Justin Herb (Guitar/Vocals), Brandon Ott (drums)
The Bionic show live rocks and Monks are on the move blowing up the scene with opening for bands like Saving Abel, Jackyl, Gemini Syndrome and more. Including this years Bean Blossom Biker Fest Indiana main stage
They were the NUMBER 1 requested on the "Ride at 5" WROI fm Rochester, IN and have since been added to the regular rotation
