“the Monbacks have reached “Monback mania” status in Norfolk, Va”

Cavalier Daily

“This 9-piece band adds just the right amount of twangy soul to classic Norfolk rock”

C-ville Weekly

"Monback Mania" is real. And it is quickly spreading from Norfolk, Va to the rest of Virginia and beyond. Major And The Monbacks play soul-infused garage rock, and they'll be here October 30.

The Southern Cafe and Music Hall

“It's been a while since all our bartenders agreed that a band was awesome. Last night everyone agreed; Major and the Monbacks blew the Deli away. Check them out right now”

Sycamore Deli

“Major and the Monbacks are fantastic to watch, and listen to. Possibly the best stage performance I have ever seen out of a Hampton Roads local band”

WHRO Defenestration

“With summer coming to an end and their college years winding down, the musical careers of one of the hottest up and coming bands to hit the Tidewater music scene in many years is just beginning”

The Downtowner Magazine

“Saturday on the Mill Point stage at 2:00 is the must-see pairing of the festival: Tumbao Salsero followed byMajor and the Monbacks. If this goes off half as well as it sounds, someone needs to start a salsa/blue-eyed soul festival.”

“The crowd will go into party mode at 4 when Major and the Monbacks take the stage”

The Virginia Pilot

“As a band, they have serious ambition and the chops to pull it off. I wouldn’t be surprised to find them on a much bigger stage than The Southern one day soon”

Cavalier Daily

"Straight from the streets of Norfolk’s very own Larchmont, I give you Major and the Monbacks."
