Monique began playing the drums when she was 5 years old and has been banging out her own beats ever since. She has played around the valley in a variety of original bands, including the popular Tempe, Arizona band, The Velvet Revolution and The Convertibles. Monique was the drummer for The Sparks! Band in Seattle, WA for several years before relocating back to the Valley. Comfortable on stage as she is in the studio, her love for music fuels her passion.
