Fondue Monks play "Texas Funk" with a groove that remains true to their Texas roots. Driven by a dedication that borders on obsession, the Fondue Monks are totally committed to the crowd and married to the beat. Their live performance is a combination of raw energy, emotion and a vibe that is captivating and infectious.

Fondue Monks have been voted best R&B/Funk/Soul band the last three years in a row by readers of The Houston Press. The original lineup has remained unchanged since the band was formed in April of 1991.

Denver Courtney; Lead Vocal. Denver combines a commanding stage presence with a powerful vocal style. His extensive background in theater and passion for poetry enable him to mesmerize an audience with insightful lyrics and a powerful delivery.

Steve Olson; Guitar. Steve is a graduate of the renowned Berklee College of Music. Steve is a veritable cornucopia of guitar styles. His history includes live performance and studio session work with funk, R&B, rock and countless jazz artists.

Ronnie Zamorano; Drums. Ronnie has a unique style that elevates him high above your average keeper of time. His ability to maintain a rock solid beat is the central element in the funk formula. Ronnie and his brother Rozz lock into a groove that drives the Fondue Monks like a well-oiled machine.

Rozzano Zamorano; Bass Guitar. Rozz plays both acoustic and electric bass with an in your face jaw dropping style that brings the art of bass playing to a new level, moving the bass beyond simply being a rhythm instrument and introducing it as a lead soloist vehicle.

Fondue Monks have only released three recordings over the last 17 years. The latest being a phenomenal live disc from 2003. Click on the covers to see the albums at CDBaby.com
