With a passion for spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ, a love for kids and families, an extra measure of musical and creative talents, a new found gift of music therapy, and a fun loving child at heart, Monte is quickly becoming the must have entertainer for your event. Whether you are in the preschool classroom, the worship experience or the youth event, God has blessed Monte with the ability to write and perform the perfect songs for your audience. And his band 5spot kicks it up 4 notches when you really want to rock. Monte began playing music at the age of 4 and a half. He doesn't remember learning to read music; he says "it has just always been there". After a life changing moment in 1995 Monte put God first and music second. That's when things began to happen. In 2008 he released his second solo studio album "The Adventures of Boo! Radley", his first mainstream kids record that enhances speech and anguage development. Monte also has a Christian kids CD available, "Jump for Jesus" (released in 2006). Monte continues to grow musically and spiritually and there are sure to be many more great records in the future including a worship/rock project.
