Hey Monea! battled through 3 rounds of voting, sweating it out on the live stage and securing thousands of votes online to make the top 10 in Hard Rock Rising – the global battle of the bands contest held by Hard Rock Cafe in exclusive partnership with ReverbNation.

(excerpt from their bio)
Hey Monea!’s recognition is rapidly moving beyond their hometown of Canton, Ohio. Lead singer and guitarist, Dan Monea, knows there is no such thing as “overnight success” and eventually hard work will pay off…
Hey Monea will take the stage this year at Hard Rock Calling 2012 to offer their picture perfect brand of pop rock to folks across the pond in London. The cherry on top? Hey Monea will be accompanied by this year’s two runners up: Brass WIres Orchestra and FOS!
1st Runner Up: Brass Wires Orchestra (Lisbon, Portugal)
2nd Runner Up: FOS (Jakarta, Indonesia)
