"Vinnie" Elmer Monk- "I grew up in Brown County Ohio where I cut my teeth on Rock and Roll in the bars from Dayton, Cincinnati, and Ripley. I played extensively on the road in the 80’s then took a break and moved to Los Angeles and studied music. I’ve spent the last 15 years playing all styles of music with various bands in the area. When I heard about Push I thought to myself I could kick some serious ass in this band. I am so excited to play and recreate the music of Ronnie James Dio! "
