$600 - $2000 per hour
From tangy funk to deep bottomed Latin grooves, from Middle-eastern trance to rock and soul, SisterMonk's high energy performances (featuring singer and percussionist Kathleen Deane, songwriter/ guitarist Jody Rubel and Trevor Hochman on bass) are gaining them increased notoriety on both coasts.

Since the birth of SisterMonk in 1999 Kathleen Deane’s sultry, soulful vocals and djembe-drumming prowess have alchemically combined with Jody Rubel’s rhythm guitar. Raised by Irish immigrant parents in NYC, Kathy’s first musical influence was traditional Irish folk songs. She has taken voice training with Erene Mastrangelli (NYC) and Cathleen Wilder (Seattle). Mostly a self-taught percussionist, Kathy has briefly studied with Senegalese Master Drummer Thione Diop, Pepe Danza and Gordy Ryan.

After studying cultural anthropology, guitarist Jody Rubel was inspired to initiate his own progressive, cultural experiment through songwriting and performance. Jody draws musical and lyrical inspiration from Peter Gabriel, Jorge Ben Jor and the music of Bahia Brazil, William Blake, yoga, dialectics and world religion.

Joining the songwriting duo is Scott Den Adel on lead guitar. Born and raised in Seattle, Scott started playing guitar at aged 9 and early influences included Scotty Moore, Chet Atkins, Elvis, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Waylon Jennings, Jessi Coulter, Townes Van Zandt and Jimi Page. He graduated from Musician’s Institute in 1991 and studied with Scott Henderson, Ron Benson and Ron Eschete. Later influences include Merle Travis, James Burton, John McGlaughlin, Robin Ford, Larry Coryell, Lenni Breau, and Pet Metheny.

SisterMonk has shared the stage with such notable acts as Zap Mama, Michael Franti & Spearhead, Anoushka Shankar, Karl Denson Trio, On the One, Delta Nove and more. They have appeared at a variety of prominent venues on both east and west coasts. East coast venues include The Knitting Factory, LeBarBat’s, SUNY New Paltz (opened for Michael Franti & Spearhead), Tower Records and Border Books. Pacific Northwest venues include the NW Folklife Festival, Seattle Hempfest, Rolling Thunder Democracy Tour (opened for Zap Mama), Nectar, Jazzbones, Evergreen St. College, Bastyr U., Humboldt State U., and numerous other clubs and venues in the area. They have been featured on radio shows such as “The Beat” with Dave Beck – KUOW 94.9FM (NPR), KBCS’s “Roots and Branches” segment, KSER 90.7FM’s “The Sunlit Room” and KISM 92.9FM’s “Locals Only” segment.
