From the hard-rocking, slide guitar-driven “Where Were You When the Lights Went Out” to the Magic Sam-influenced treatment of “I Just Got to Know,” Suhler and company carve out an original blues-rock groove that recalls George Thorogood, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. Suhler is particularly good at nasty slide guitar, showcased on the Elmore James instrumental “Pickin’ the Blues.”

From the Bo Diddley beat (on “Oh Hannah”) to the slinky reptile rhythms (“Doncha Hang Around My Door”), Monkey Beat suggests an unwholesomely good time. And, as George Thorogood (who picked them as an opening act on his most recent tours) states, “They better be good, I discovered them.”
