We want to thank The Alternate Routes, Tony Lucca, Pat McGee, Jay Nash, Matt Duke, Caleb Hawley, Paul Pfau and Dan Monea for being part of bringing Live Music Society to life. Season 1 was an amazing experience for us and we are grateful to these artists for sharing their talent and stories with us.

Thank you to Dave Farah and Ernie Poutou – without our crew this idea would not have become a reality!! We recognize the hours spent filming and producing each episode, while they were in graduate school, was not easy…and there just aren’t enough words to express our appreciation.

To the music lovers that have joined our community – you are what keeps ideas like this one alive. Thank you for your views, your shares and most of all your support!!

About the Artist

For brothers Dan and Nate Monea, their time is meant to be spent doing what they love – writing, recording and performing music. “Even though Nate was just 13 and I was 16 when we played our first show, I knew music would be our life”, says Dan. That passion was affirmed in 2012, when this childhood trio from Cleveland, Ohio were selected to open for Bruce Springsteen to perform in front of 60,000 fans during Hard Rock Calling’s summer music festival in London’s Hyde Park. The band secured this opportunity by winning Hard Rock’s worldwide battle of the bands, besting over 12,000 other bands from around the world. Since then, Hey Monea has shared the stage with many of their musical heroes: ranging from the Bare Naked Ladies and the Goo Goo Dolls to the Doobie Brothers, Lady Antebellum, and Kid Rock. These influences resonate deeply in their music and was captured efficiently by legendary Grammy winning producer Dennis Herring (Counting Crows, Elvis Costello, Modest Mouse) on the bands' major label debut, Cheap Souvenirs, in late 2013 and their follow up record The Fifty in 2015. ​ The band has spent 2017 touring in support of their latest singles “Ghetto Queen” and “Roll with Me”, traveling the United States from coast to coast as well as parts of Asia. Hey Monea will also be hosting and presenting the 2nd annual Little C Music Festival on September 15th and 16th. The festival celebrates Canton Ohio’s local music community and will include national touring artists Paul Pfau, Amy Gerhartz and Brian Dunne, as well as many artists from the band’s hometown.
