2001 - 2010
Monza is a Belgian rock band, founded by Stijn Meuris, originally a member of Noordkaap. When Noordkaap stopped making music, Meuris formed 'Monza'.
Monza released 'Van God Los' in 2001. The singles 'Van God Los', 'De Stad Kan Zo Koud Zijn' and 'De Ogen Van Jenny' were big hits in Belgium.
They released 'Grand' in 2005. It's a very emotional record because Stijn Meuris's girlfriend committed suicide. The singles 'Dood Aan Alle Meisjes' and 'Rijkdom' got a considerable amount of airplay on radio stations.
They wrote the theme song for the 175 years of independence of Belgium "Ik Hou van U/Je t'aime tu sais". It was an adaptation of the Noordkaap hit "Ik hou van u" in collaboration with Marie Daulne (Zap Mama).
In 2008 they released the third album 'Attica!'. The first single is 'Wie Danst Er Nog?'. In order to promote the album they traveled around in Belgium, playing in a circus. Monza stopped making music in 2010 and Stijn Meuris has got a new band, Meuris.
