THE MONICA BELL BAND

A LITTLE BIT COUNTRY AND A WHOLE LOT OF ROCK AND ROLL

This ain't your pop-country, top 40 cover band! Since 2013, we've been playing shows that reflect us as artists and deliver what you WANT to hear, not the same old set list on top 40 radio that fifteen other "country" cover bands are playing on a given weekend.

MONICA BELL

Frontwoman and songwriter, Monica Bell, started her performance career in elementary school. Acting, singing and writing propelled her towards scholarships and accolades throughout her academic career. While Monica's powerful belt and animated dynamics made her a prospect for the musical theater stage, she broke away from the regimented academic performance scene when she was introduced to the local Blues scene at Davenport, Iowa's River Music Experience. With the encouragement of fellow singer/songwriters, Monica developed relationships and learned from local talented musicians of all varieties and ultimately formed a country cover band with a sound paying tribute to her upbringing: Fickle Filly and the Haymakers. After a whirlwind first year playing the local scene, Monica began to receive recognition for her original music and took to the road regularly to promote the Monica Bell Band. Juggling the cover band, the original band, a full time career in radio and a family, she chose to merge projects in 2016 and solely perform as Monica Bell. With a storytelling writing style, you'll liken her originals to the some of your country favorites, but Monica's all-in on stage performance is all rock and roll!
