In 1963, 7 gorgeous french models, all named monique, met at a chanel show in paris and having felt the ennui of the european fashion world, decided to move to new york and start an all girl band that would only play twist music. the band was an instant hit and played in every venue in new york city right up until the late 80's/early 90's when each of the girls retired to cities spanning the globe. some stayed in new york, some moved upstate to the fingerlakes, some moved down river to ol' new orleans and one moved to london. if you are a fan or even a monique (anyone can be one really) please join the group and feel free to post pictures and videos of the group if you were ever lucky enough to have witnessed the glorious experience of their performing genius. ooh la la.
