"Trumpeter, vocalist, and percussionist Pete Rodríguez carries the bloodline of Nuyorican salsa as he takes the tradition of Afro-Cuban jazz to new places. The son of renowned salsero Pete “El Conde” Rodríguez and godson of Fania Records bandleader Johnny Pacheco, the younger Rodríguez cut his teeth backing up some of the greatest names in Latin music. He became his father’s musical director at the age of 19.
Coached by pianist Oscar Hernandez, the former director for "El Conde" and Ruben Blades, Rodríguez was playing trumpet, singing coro, playing maracas and giving cues to the band. As a vocalist, he sang on Tito Puente's Grammy Award-winning album, Mambo Birdland. As an instrumentalist, he's appeared with legends including Celia Cruz, Eddie Palmieri, Chico O'Farrill and Bebo Valdés. Now, as a bandleader, Rodríguez is drawing on these experiences to take his brand of Afro-Cuban jazz in exciting new directions."

Featuring a 5'7" 1946 Knabe grand piano, handmade furniture, craft cocktails, and a strict whisper-policy, Monks began as a jazz listening room in an East Austin warehouse in September of 2016.
Continuing as a pop-up event series, unconventional performance spaces are paired with world-class musicians to create unique and exceptional experiences.
There are plenty of venues to have a conversation across a table, but Monks is not that place! Out of respect to our audiences and the musicians, we enforce a strict whisper-policy during performances.
