Original blues, ballads and singer/songwriter music near the edge of jazz.
Alan Monasch plays piano and guitar and presents songs across genres that seek to explore our human inner space even as they entertain, original blues, ballads and American-songbook-style songs with a touch of jazz.
Alan plays shows in both the sister regions in which he spends his time, the San Francisco Bay Area and the Berkshires of Massachusetts. He performs both solo and with his band, The Night Crew.
Alan has an abiding interest in supporting and nurturing original local music everywhere, as evidenced by his active participation in BOOM.
