Canton, Ohio based rock band Hey Monea is hitting the road for their first tour of 2019.  They will be kicking things off in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at Club Café on January 24th and will be making their way up and down the east coast for a month-long run of shows.  They are also thrilled to have Florence, Alabama based singer/songwriter Ethan Sak as direct support for the entire tour (with the exception of Key West.)

Dan Monea had this to day about the upcoming tour: “sleeping on the bus with a bunch of stinky dudes, drinking cheap whiskey, away from the comforts of home, for a month?  I can’t wait.  It means playing our songs for people in 16 cities and that’s love.”

“We love what we do, and we love being on the road. Connecting with people from every corner of the world through music brings real joy to us. Everybody has a story, and we want to hear that. And we want to share ours,” says Dan Monea.  The band performs constantly, either touring nationally or playing bar gigs to pay bills.

Hey Monea’s pop-leaning rock music centers around emotionality and their soaring harmonies aim directly at the heart of the human spirit.  Dan and Nate were raised Jehovah’s Witnesses and it was their family’s decision to leave that community that set the boys on a path toward pursuing deeper connection points.  Every tour stop is an opportunity to meet people, be of service, an effort to build bonds with their audience.  The band refers to their extended community as their “ghetto family”, and the family reunion takes place every September in downtown Canton at the band’s own Little C Music Festival, now in its third year.  “We’ve spent quite a few years traveling, meeting new people, and having amazing experiences at every stop.  Along the way we’ve made so many friends who are incredibly talented and have something unique and inspiring to offer.  Little C is our way of bringing all those friends to Canton to show them the little corner of the earth we call home, and to show all of our friends here in Canton the cast of characters we’ve met out there on the road,” offers Nate Monea.  This year’s event took September 14 and 15 in partnership with the Canton Flea, ArtsInStark, VisitCanton, and several additional local sponsors.
