PRESS:
"Ever wonder what Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Paul Westerberg and Steve Jordan would sound like in a band together? Listen to Monty Warren & the Friggin Whatevers..."—The Palm Beach Post

PRAISE FOR MONTY WARREN & THE FRIGGIN' WHATEVERS

"From gritty foot-stompers to jangly roots and blues belters to acoustic melancholy, Warren brims with a rare and raw musical sincerity."—Vex Magazine, Calgary, CANADA


"Retroactively bridges the gap between '70s pub rock/power pop and the arrivals of Tom Petty, Graham Parker and Elvis Costello…effortlessly enjoyable, a virtue without expiration."—Indy Week

"Old-school, Beatles-Stones-Dylan-Band-Dead-Prince-inspired, psychedelic-white soul-funky roots rock...as earnest, lyrical, raunchy or grandiose as their songs—and maybe lives?—require."
Jazz Beyond Jazz (Arts Journal Blog

Instead of heading for L.A. in the '70s, in pursuit of a record deal, Monty Warren put his rock 'n' roll dreams on hold to support his mother for 20 years until she passed away. Then, in 2007, Warren played a demo for Terry Anderson & The Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team (Battleship Chains, I Love You Period), and they offered to help him make a record. And the rest, as they say, is Friggin Whatevers history.
