A few years ago Monty decided it was time for a sea change. After some encouragement from making the top 40 in Australian Idol, Monty left a corporate accountant job in Sydney and set sail to pursue the life of a musician in Western Australia. A few years later, Monty now travels the globe performing his Johnny Cash Show “A Boy Named Cash” which has been featured on The Seven Networks Morning Show, and "The Voice" Australia.
Monty’s act comprises his signature low voice and contrasting ability to belt out pub rock classics covering all style variations; Rock & Roll, Pop, RnB, Country, Blues, Soul, Celtic, and Folk to name a few!
Monty’s command of his acoustic guitar remains second-to-none and his sharp wit and smile never fails to radiate from stage as he delivers his setlist of modern hits to everyone's favourite anthems.
Monty was absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended. We actually tried to keep him for a few extra hours but unfortunately for us he had another act.Rachael Davies (Engagement Party) – November 2015
I just wanted to give you a bit of feedback on Monty yesterday as he was fantastic! Our fashion parade consisted of ladies in their 60’s and 70’s and he was great with interacting with them and getting them to enjoy themselves. We would definitely love to have him at our Centres again.Elizabeth Evans (Wanneroo Freshfood Markets) – February 2015
Our wedding was incredible, just perfect in every way. Tiffany, I can speak on behalf of my Husband and myself when I say that Monty was magnificent.
Monty took the time to learn our “walking down the aisle” song Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran. His arrangement of this song was simply beautiful and his style complemented our day in every way. Our guests commented that during our pre reception drinks. Monty was interactive and fun, playing a range of songs which everyone was happy to dance to.
Our first dance song was performed at the end of the pre reception drinks, another song we requested Monty learn being Latch by Sam Smith. Again Monty’s version of the song was amazing and heartfelt. Agreeably a hard song to sing considering the vocal range required! Thank you again for your assistance and our warmest regards and gratitude again to Monty. We will definitely book Monty again for future events.
Just wanted to let you know Monty was fantastic last night – he did such a good job! Even coordinated with our guest speaker to play instrumentals over his speech/poems which was amazing.Emma Cameron (Corporate Function) – May 2015
Monty and his band were fantastic! I couldn’t have hoped for better entertainment and received glowing feedback from all of my guests. Monty and has band had everyone (even the most hesitant of dancers) up on the dancefloor for the whole night – they took requests and were just pretty fabulous the whole night. He even appeared on the Voice the night of our function and wanted a selfie with our entire crowd to commemorate the occasion which was great.
We wouldn’t hesitate in booking him again.
Monty was amazing! Everyone absolutely loved him! He got everyone interacted and turned it into a real party!
Thank you for such a smooth, easy booking! I will definitely be recommending you again and passing your name on.
I just thought I would send a quick email to let you know how good Monty Cotton was here last night and this morning. He was one of the best we have had – very interactive with the crowd and so talented!
A very nice young man and easy to work with. We would happily have him here again! Thanks so much for putting forward such a brilliant act.
