Kyle Megna and the Monsoons (2018 WAMI Alternative Rock/Rock Artist of the Year) and (2017 WAMI Alternative Rock/Rock Artist of the year) is an original Wisconsin band with an ever-growing following locally and beyond. The band has shared the stage with acts such as Toto, Rusted Root, Jack Russell’s Great White, and Here Come The Mummies. Touring the Mid-West and South-East, the Monsoons are a tight-knit group of accomplished, charismatic musicians with diverse backgrounds; these guys know how to have fun while always keeping it professional.
