T-Bone a.k.a. Rob of Monkey Bus
By: MJ

You know how you always try to get a glimpse of the drummer in the band?  There is also a saying that chicks are crazy about the drummers.  Well behind the cymbals, huge drums, cowbell, and not to mention the guitarists and the lead singers, there we find sitting down in a short stool with drum sticks is the drummer. 

 

Monkey Bus is not only composed of good singer and guitarist and keyboardist and bassist but also of a good drummer named Rob.  Rob started the band with Cheeze a.k.a. Mike about 10 years ago.  I tried to get Rob to tell me how they named the group and how they got their nicknames.  Read on and find out more about this cute drummerÖ
