Band to Join.


As of August 2021, I'm playing regularly in bands. Feel free to contact me for fill-in work. I have an extensive repertoire and can seamlessly integrate into almost any situation.

A classically-trained pianist, Monte Carroll grew up near Memphis. After two decades in Nashville, he relocated to the mid-Atlantic area for a while, and has now returned to the south. Equally adept at classic rock, pop, soul, and R&B, Monte enjoys playing with other high-caliber musicians for any audience that appreciates a tight, nuanced groove.

• Wiling and able to tour.
• Classically-trained and versatile keyboard player with a discerning ear. I provide essential and accurate parts (piano, Hammond B3, Clavinet, synthesizer, Rhodes, Wurlitzer, DX-7, CP-80, horns, strings, more) to the songs, allowing for expanded repertoire and giving my projects a competitive advantage.
• Read & write music & charts, and play by ear - hearing the notes and feeling the groove.
• Professional ability, attitude, gear, and stage presence. No drug use and I don't drink.
• Bring a sense and purpose of business to my projects.
• Published a widely-read LinkedIn article relating general business terms to music performance business.
• Belmont University graduate.
