Synergy…..the very definition of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts.  Ellen and Frank form “Monticello Road” bring a collaborative and cooperative spirit in their approach to music and how they interact with their audience and clients.  They both firmly believe that music is a gift that should be shared.  With that guiding principle in mind, they’ve embarked on a journey that has been both exciting and rewarding.

With a Win/Win aesthetic, they are ready to provide the professionalism, musical variety and maximum entertainment value your event requires and deserves.  From rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, private parties, corporate events, fundraisers and festivals to the most intimate gatherings, the needs of the client and audience are always the top priority.

Furthermore, for those occasions where a solo performer is not enough and a full band is not practical, why not consider Monticello Road for your entertainment needs?  You’ll get a top notch team that has the willingness and ability to play music that everyone will enjoy.  From easy listening dinner music to upbeat and fun party songs, they have all the bases covered.  Add in the fact they are very easy to work with and you’ll have the peace of mind knowing that all the details – both large and small are in good hands.

With two lead vocalists – female and male – their variety of music is near endless.  When you combine Ellen’s rich and emotional vocal style with Frank’s versatile guitar work and bluesy vocal approach – the Synergy mentioned above is on full display.  Add in Ellen’s tasteful acoustic guitar accompaniment and you’ll swear that more than two people are on stage – it’s a full sound that must be experienced live to be totally appreciated.

Focusing on the Carolinas as a base of operations, they are ready to work with you to help achieve your entertainment goals and needs. They look forward to working with you!
