Drive out to your local dance hall or hole-in-the-wall bar on any given Saturday night in Texas and it’s just the sort of place you might find Mark Monaco and his spirited roadhouse band. They’ll be rocking out like they’re playing The Garden, throwin’ back a few beers (and lots of RED BULL), and sweating like they just ran a marathon. But don’t be alarmed, it’s just another day at the office for this group whose live sets typically span three hours straight. Mark Monaco has been honing his craft for most of his life. He attended Nashville’s renowned Music Business School at Belmont University and interned at MCA Records on Music Row at age 19. He later earned a Business Marketing Degree from Texas Tech University in 2001 and released his first album, the critically acclaimed American Highway, shortly thereafter. Monaco, who does all the writing and producing on his albums, has continued to tour throughout Texas and the South, building a loyal following and invaluable radio support on both American Highway and its follow-up, Alternate Frequency, landing him on the Texas Music and Music Review charts. With the release of his new album, Overdrive and first single Wild in Texas plus a new music video to support Wild in Texas. Monaco is poised to step up his game, “I feel like everything is finally clicking,” says Monaco. “My writing is better, the band I have behind me is the best, and people that overlooked us in the past are starting to take notice. And I’m ready for the next stage.” You may also visit: and

Really dig the songs on Mark's album Overdrive! My teenage kids even like it (and they're a tough crowd to win over). This is our cruising music in the car. Keep the good tunes coming Mark!

I agree Tanya. Great album. I caught Mark and his band last week in Corpus at a little record shop. They were just hanging out with the people and jamming. Even acoustic these guys totally rock! Going to try and make it out to the NB show in April if they don't add a CC date soon.

Overdrive is a great album! I loooove Shine. It's become my anthem. Going to see MMB at Billy's Icehouse in NB in April. Can't wait!

Fabulous new album "Overdrive" especially "Shine" which I hear is really taking off in the hill country on KFAN. Mark, keep up the good work! See you in Nashville on the 8th at the Blue Bird Cafe...can't wait!

All the songs sound like they're ripped off from classic hits.

Badass tunes! Love "End of the Highway". My girlfriend is crazy for "First Time Again". I'll definitely be picking up Mark's other CDs on my next trip to Gruene.

Loved Alternate Frequency. But Overdrive blows it away! Great songs with cool vibe. Job well done guys.
