Major and The Monbacks’ sassy horns and lively pianos ready the dance floor while spirited lyrics spread a message of cheer to their eager audience. Major and The Monbacks’ sassy horns and lively pianos ready the dance floor while spirited lyrics spread a message of cheer to their eager audience.

The ink on their college diplomas is not dry, but the nine members of Major and the Monbacks are already making a splash in the Central Virginia music scene. Defying genres, these energetic artists combine Motown, Ska, and Southern rock with the self-proclaimed “Eastern Seaboard’s Horniest Horn Section.”  Their songs are pure celebration, a tribute to the days when a soulful tune and a willing voice were all that was needed for a good time.

Thursday 3/20. $7, 8:30pm. The Southern Café & Music Hall, 103 S. First St, Charlottesville. 977-5590.
