LAST WEEK RECAP:

The Gaslight: The DUO performed to wave after wave of patrons, the ebb and flow of the peoples matched by our song selections. A great night had by all.

Nostrano Vineyards: The DUO had a simply wonderful afternoon celebrating the vineyard's 5th birth. We were honered to be one of the ways in which they chose to thank the patrons that have supported them over the years. In the spirit of thanks, we played 3 hours straight. Our way of thanking them for always supporting us, as well. Congrats! Love you guys.

Max's on Main: The DUO played to a packed house that lasted until our very last song. Max's holds a special place for us being one of the venues that we've worked the longest. It was nice to see us still putting asses in seats. See you next month.

BIO

back to the top

Tin Monk is the stage name of Composer, Performer, and Teacher Chris Holub. Monk has spent nearly a decade as the guitarist, vocalist, and founding member of Hudson Valley's own Talking Machine, a band he helms with his wife, Di Holub, with occasionally help from his drummer, Samuel Weismann.

When not performing with the group at venues, private and corporate events, Monk is the Music Director at the Beacon School of Rock. With nearly thirty years of total experience, Monk is a trifecta of metronomic bolero rythyms, blistering guitar leads, and three octave vocals. And a pretty good teacher to boot.

 

VIDEOS
