Whether it be performing music live at coffee shops, clubs and bars, or spinning house tracks at venue's across the world, over the past several years both Chris Ulrich and Frankie Monacella let music consume their lives. Getting together in the Summer of 2003, Chris and Frankie formed what became the creative tandem known as Out For Hours. Since then, the duo has written several songs together.
As the songs began to evolve, the fan base grew, and so did the band. In the summer of 2004 Out For Hours welcomed drummer Paul Wilhelm and bassist Mark Vazquez. Paul brought his talents to the University of Illinois, becoming a regular in the local music scene, while Mark demonstrated diverse styles of bass guitar as a member of The University of Chicago Jazz Ensemble. 2008 brought Pauls brother, Adam Wilhelm, to Out For Hours on keys. Classically trained, Adam focused on diverse styles of Jazz and Ska while at Knox College. Playing in several multi-genre bands, it's needless to say that both Paul and Adam Wilhelm as well as Vazquez entered Out For Hours as well-seasoned musicians, adding the styling and positive energy that can't help but attract an audience.
Out For Hours has been described as a "melodic rock band with a pop and funk edge," and it's the dedication to its songs that inspires the band to keep writing. Their energetic sound unique lyrics attract audiences of all types and ages. Out For Hours gives a part of themselves to every audience. This is what keeps people listening.
