J.D. Monson Band

Whether he is opening up for George Strait or protecting the community as a sworn Deputy Sheriff in Dallas County, J.D. Monson is always right at home. Over the past 20 years, J.D. Monson has toured the USA and Mexico performing at large concerts, corporate events and fund raisers. His rich country voice and his handsome looks are as appealing as his genuine rapport with an audience. J.D. also writes songs used on television like the hit TV series “Eleventh Hour” on CBS. How does he do all this while keeping his oath to the state of Texas? Good clean living and hard work.

JD's band is one of the most versatile choices if you are looking for a great country band that can take requests of other styles of dance music.  The six piece can include a female vocalist upon request.  

"Hi Bill, A quick note to say a huge thank you to JD and his crew for a fantastic night on Saturday. As always they entertainer us brilliiantly and went above and beyond the call of duty.
