Acoustic Music by Monte LLC 
Playing your favorites acoustic songs from today and yesterday


I’m a singer/songwriter.  I’ve have been singing and playing guitar for over thirty years. After college, I retired from music to start my engineering career and raise a family. 


Now that I'm an empty nester, I returned to music in 2009 and played for a couple different local bands, but decided to go back to my roots and perform solo acoustic music. It has been very rewarding.  Thanks to YOU!


Other Interests:


I’m currently an executive for a large international  manufacturer.  Besides music, I like to golf and travel.

We would like to start doing some live music in our bar on Thursday and Friday evenings. Just a simple acoustic set up like you had tonight. I think your style of music and vocals is exactly what we are looking for. Look forward to hearing from you. Feel free to call.

Hi Monte,

Just checking in with you. I hope you are doing well. We haven’t talked in quite a while, but if you are still interested in playin, I would like to book you for more dates in April and May. Will you be available any of these dates?

All the best…


Monte, I really thought you were kidding about being in the band, so I never really watched the video. BUT IT'S REALLY YOU!!!!! Great job.


Thank you for your donation to CancerFree KIDS – that is very generous of you. 

Thank you!


Hi, Monte –

Thanks so much to you for your kind offer. This is a great idea to drive business to her shop and to help worthy charities. I am sure you will find many charities who would love to participate… ProKids, Josh Cares, and First Step Home come to mind They are always looking for ideas to help with fund raising and gain new supporters.

Thanks again for thinking of us and best wishes,

Executive Director
