RaR Bar celebrates Make Music Day, a global event taking place in over 800 cities around the world, giving community members of all ages, creeds, and musical persuasions the chance to experience the joy of music.
SisterMonk is an established NY/NJ original band hailing from the Pacific Northwest. Their music: female-powered, djembe-driven, with poetic lyrics and soulful vocals – harnessing the raw power of 60’s and 70’s folk-rock & soul with world rhythms. Their unique sound has gained the band a solid fan base from coast to coast.
SisterMonk’s music invites audiences to join a moving musical experience, to dance freely and feel the joy of living that is both introspective and celebratory, deepening a sense of community. The band performs regularly underground (as members of the NYC MTA’s Music Under New York program) and at various venues around New York City, such as The Bowery Electric, Mercury Lounge, and Rockwood Music Hall. They also tour nationally during the festival season and have long been a favorite at The Seattle ‘Folk Life’ Festival. Notable recent venues include Union Arts Center, The Lincoln Center Summer Music in The Park and Montclair Center Stage.
