    I have to make it my business to see this guy live in person ASAP!!
    He just stands out above all the rest . I don’t think we will ever see another player quite like him again.
    He is like Bootsy and Prince on steroids !!

    That would be epic!!
    I think Thundercat would win in the vocals but Mono would take him in the instruments .

    I know. I often wonder what we were robbed of by not getting to see this partnership fully explored to its fullest potential.

    I don’t know. Mohini can certainly groove, but I think shredding is what truly fires up Mohini Dey. MonoNeon is the Funk and nothing but the Funk!:bassist:

    I wish I got out more because I know he has gigged in St. Louis a few times before the pandemic.

    It is worth noting that MonoNeon’s five string of choice is a humble Lakland 55-01. This once again affirms that epic music is made by epic bassist’s. The instrument is secondary.

    I saw him live, opening for Brittany Howard (of Alabama Shakes) in mid-2019. His band was doing some wild stuff that bordered on free jazz at times. I didn’t love it, but his playing was incredible!

    Just think of the "cross-pollination" possibilities!

    MonoNeon is the whole package, a great instrumentalist, who also promotes and applies advancements in music theory, and also drenches everything he does in social and cultural satire. Pure Art, with the capital A.
