Monkey Lizards is an indie folk rock band from Livermore, California formed by singer-songwriter John Thayer, bassist Olsen Miguel Baez, drummer Brian Surano, and multi-instrumentalist, Richard Hibbs. They play original music influenced by songwriters such as Dylan and Tom Waits, as well as favorite bands that include The Pixies and Ozomatli. Their songs tell the stories of heroes, monsters, zombies, magic bus rides, and regular people looking for love in the face of oblivion. Since starting to play together in 2016, they have self-released two original albums and are currently in the studio working on their third.
