Donnie & The Monarchs

Donnie and The Monarchs is a Saint John, New Brunswick based band that has delivered a constant stream of classic Rock ‘n Roll across Eastern Canada and into the US for the past three and a half decades.

The Monarchs have worked with legendary performers that include opening for The Beach Boys, performing with Tiny Tim, Freddy Cannon, Dr. Hook, Bobby Day, Tommy Roe, The Coasters, Michelle Wright, Tommy Hunter, John Allen Cameron, and the Rankin Family,  to name a few.  The Monarchs also appeared as themselves in the movie Geraldine’s Fortune, starring Jane Curtain.

 

Noted for a choice of classic dancing favorites from the 50s to the 80s, mixed with great costumes, wild antics and audience participation, The Monarchs demand dancing and singing along, and the feeling is contagious!
