Outside the extreme world of modern rock, MONSTA is
uncompromising in recapturing the essence of today's country dance
rock experience. The working man's music for the next century,
MONSTA is filled with the restless energy that is true to
the bluesy heart of rock and roll. The music, played by stalwart
musicians of the highest caliber, focuses on a precision
groove, or an explosive instrumental lead, while respecting the
integrity of the story within the song.
New England's RICK MONAST, songwriter and singer, is a blown

MARC LIESHMAN, PAUL CARROCA, GARY SOARES,
and WAYNE MANNING, are it's hardened stone walls, and
RICK MONAST is it's foundation.
