There are five bands called The Monroes. 1. A new wave / power pop band from San Diego, California consisting of Eric Denton (keyboards), Bob “Monroe” Davis (bass), Jesus Ortiz (vocals), Rusty Jones (guitar), and Jonnie Gilstrap (drums). They released a self-titled EP in 1982, and are best known for the song “What Do All The People Know?” 2. A Rock / Emo band from Pretoria, South Africa. Not too long ago in a land where musical creativity had become a scarcity, destiny inspired The Monroes. Through numerous auditions, ensuring the ideal artist for each spot, the band was carefully designed.
