Americana from Boulder, CO
The magic of the western United States. The mysticism of Colorado. The richness of the Americana-folk music scene. Boulder-based quintet Monocle Band takes all of these influences, and combines them into a sonic destination – sweeping fans into a storied journey through bluegrass, roots rock, and beyond.
With the new album The Clearing—released on October 20, 2017 and celebrated with sold-out show at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons, CO—the band is accomplishing the goal of staying true to its established bluegrass and folk roots, while opening the door up to more diverse influences. The addition of more electric guitar, piano, and different sonic textures adds up to a gleaming, all-encompassing Americana sound that will please both new and old aficionados of the group alike.
Monocle Band provides a captivating performance in a broad variety of settings - from club dates to festival stages, listening rooms to late night dance parties. The group is available to play in any setting imaginable and can be booked as an acoustic duo or trio, bluegrass string band, or full quintet with drums.
