“New Monsoon’s exhilarating blend of acoustic and electric instrumentation shines in an irresistible blend of sophisticated song craft, inventive musical exploration and down-home rock-n-roll. They have a collective power that comes off as a real unified force on stage. It’s not just a band, you know? It’s something transcendental.” – Michael Shrieve (original drummer, Santana)

New Monsoon is a Bay Area jamband institution and has been experiencing a renaissance as of late. With an eclectic blend of world inspired rhythms, collaborative songwriting, deep grooves and extensive jams, New Monsoon incorporates many influences into their own brand of rock ‘n roll. Celebrating over 25 years of making music, New Monsoon is better than ever having cultivated the experiences of national touring, performing at top venues and festivals including Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, and Austin City Limits Fest. The band has an extensive catalog of studio recordings most notably “The Sound” produced by Michael Shrieve (Santana)/Paul Kimble (Grant Lee Buffalo) and “V” produced by platinum award winning producer John Cutler (Grateful Dead).

New Monsoon sets itself apart with an interwoven blend of electric and acoustic guitar from Jeff Miller and Bo Carper. Along with the sparkling keyboard work of Phil Ferlino, these three founding members tap into the chemistry that has endeared countless fans over the decades. The addition of a new rhythm section has injected fresh energy into the band’s signature sound. Dale Fanning is a dazzling drummer who brings African and jazz influences to the mix. If you remember his trio Living Daylights, you know how lucky they are to have him. They’ve got the low end on lockdown with Murph Murphy (Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, Tracorum, Band Beyond Description) on bass. This Crazy Horse fan favorite is a groove master who elevates every project he’s involved with.
