Vocalist and guitarist Ben Storm and guitarist Dallas Wade formed the Lost Monarchs in 2016 after meeting up in San Diego. Soon, the pair sought out Bob Salihar (lead/slide guitar, vocals) to join the band. Following many open mic jam sessions at a very special local spot, Art Beat Gallery, a mutual friend and musician Daniel "DaFroggz" Martin (bass and vocals) joined the band. Finally, the band came together when "Astro" Dan Gershun (drums) joined the lineup.
The Lost Monarchs emerged in the North County music scene through breweries, art galleries and backyard jam sessions while playing to larger crowds in spots such as; Aztec Brewery, Peabody's, 1st Street Bar, Mother Earth Brew Co, Corner Drafthouse, Saddle Bar, Midnight Jack Brewery, The Roxy Encinitas and more... You might hear a familiar song sung with a bit more soul or a song you've never heard, but the Lost Monarchs will always deliver a groovy and rockin' show!
