The Monarchs

"Louisville Life" celebrates Louisville’s great American rock and roll band, The Monarchs, and their Golden Anniversary with long time members Leon Middleton and Dusty Miller, sax and bass respectively.

In 1964, this Louisville institution stayed in the "Hot 100" for 13 weeks with "Look Homeward Angel," while hitting No. 1 in 17 markets across the nation.

Although the national spotlight never caught The Monarchs, Lousvillians have reaped the benefit, as The Monarchs have shared an enduring 50-year legacy with their hometown fans.

The book "The Monarchs: The Great American Rock 'n' Roll Dream" is by Billy Reed and published by Butler Books.
