THANK YOU to all who cheered on our band Some Assembly Required for the WMGK House Band Competition - we had a blast!

Bill Monaghan’s backing band for his original material, and a cover band too!

The roots of Rock N Roll to that specialized sound: Some Assembly Required can cover it! Founded in the Philadelphia suburbs in 1989 by active members Bill and Jim Monaghan, our tight 4 piece band can expand to include female vocals, horns, and more!

Music ranges from standards (Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Patsy Cline, etc) through 50s dance & oldies rock, through the years of 60s and 70s rock, with slow songs, and special areas including Beatles, Billy Joel, Elvis, Aretha Franklin, Carole King, and more!
We also specialize in themed & holiday music, and a Christmas party is right at the top of the list!  We can do up-beat Christmas songs as well as sing alongs and even the special soft ones that we love!  Duets with great harmonies too!
