Charlotte garage surf band The Monterreys break the mold. The Monterreys’ music may be based in surf rock, but the band breaks out of the garage with its infusion of Latin, sci-fi and lounge. The band might just be hitting its first anniversary in existence, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have the skills to entertain. It’s hard to listen to the music and not picture a great Spaghetti Western playing in the background. – Jeff Hahne (Creative Loafing)
Hailing from Charlotte, N.C., The Monterreys serve up instrumental bliss sure to appeal to fans of early 1960s surf-rock and vintage spy-movie soundtracks. Twangy guitars meld with a percussive backbeat, creating a fun-filled and highly danceable sound that conjures up images of a bygone era when Dick Dale and James Bond were part of contemporary mainstream culture. – Dan Armonaitis (GoUpstate.com)

Karen Mills is a breath of fresh air. Her humor is smart, funny, and original. No one can help you “get your laugh on” better than she can. She’s been compared to such greats as Bill Cosby, Ellen Degeneres, and Jerry Seinfeld. Her comedy is clean, clever and relatable – she finds the funny in everyday life. A native of Tennessee, this southern girl makes one thing clear, “I am NOT a southern belle, unless I need to be.”
Leanne is married to an “conservative republican” with three children. Her comedy focuses on her children who are always first priority. Being a mother of three young children in rural Appalachia did not allow for many traveling dates in her early career. Her first public attempt at standup comedy was to emcee at a local variety show for a men’s civic club. This two-night stand led to many appearances in local East Tennessee coffee houses and scores of regional corporate events.
