Munkey Rench / Bio

A mixture of the old and the new….
Four guys from all different musical backgrounds come together to form acoustical, grungy, bluesy rock and roll. With a rhythm section like this you just cant go wrong. Drummer John McDade brings a powerful punch to the band with a heavy stick technique. John is influenced heavily by 80's metal and 90's grunge. Libby Fulgham adds a layer of thick to that as the self-professed man who “likes the deep tones.” Libby brings years of playing and adds solid groove lines to the mix. Libby likes to rock and draws his influences from groups like Alice in Chains and Soundgarden as well as older classic groups as well. Next up: The “Big Dawg” – Tony Merry. The man simply breathes the very essence of SRV. Tony’s influences of southern rock and Texas blues are unmistakable in every bend, run and squeal heard from his Strat. Tony also fills in some of the vocal work to round out the sound. His also the band’s consummate gear head. Last on the list is rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist Rick Dudley. Rick spent his former life cutting his chops playing bass in country acts around the Dallas, TX area only to decide that it just wasn’t enough. He swapped instruments and picked up the writing bug and is serving as the group’s lyricist. His influences range from Bad Company to Breaking Benjamin. Together they form MUNKEY RENCH!!
MUNKEY RENCH can only be described as an acoustical/electrical ride on a runaway train that will take your breath away, leave you dancing in your chair and begging for more and more and more…
