Tuesday, July 16 Moneluv Plays at The Red Piano State Street Santa Barbara!

Here’s a short intro for Moneluv:

They’ve been on the Santa Barbara music scene for over eight years. You’ve seen them at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, during SB’s First Thursdays, on Cox 17 TV, and During the “Party Time with Scott Topper” TV show on YouTube.

They’ve played at the Santa Barbara Downtown Art & Wine Tour, Amgen Tour of California, Firestone Winery Concert Series, and have been featured in Santa Barbara Seasons Magazine and Santa Barbara Independent Magazine.

Please welcome (pronounced “Money Love”)

We are so excited to have Mon-E-Luv here at Elings Park with their Retro 60’s vibes, cool synth-bass style undertones and hypnotic vocals. If you like The Beatles, Violent Femmes, Rolling Stones, CCR, Tom Petty, The Eagles, or Johnny Cash, you will LOVE MoneLuv!

California alternative psychedelic rock music at its best. Moneluv’s overall compositions have a Beatle-esque song and singing style with groovy tension & instrumentation.

Mitch Karno, Ukulele, Keyboard, Vocals.
Scott Topper, Guitar, Vocals.
Michael Robinson, Bass.
Mark Delgadillo, Drums.

“A big thank you to Town and Country Event Rentals for supplying our lovely Manhattan Lounge. It was perfect for listening to our talented Mon-e-luv Band! Playing Covers and Originals that Rock, Mitch Karno (keyboards/vocals/ukulele) and Scott Topper (acoustic guitar/vocals), sang one of my new favorite songs twice, just for me! I certainly felt the Mon-e-luv! Mitch and Scott are the new dynamic duo that has hit Santa Barbara and stolen my heart. I will be hiring them lots this year for a new fresh music vibe for my events.”
