More Monkey Mayhem in Store for the July 4th Weekend!

My friends:

First, a picture from Shorty’s Den (Friday night) and one from our ride in the parade (Saturday morning).  Thanks to our friends in Bedford (especially Brian and Brian from the band ‘Junk’ and long-time buddy of ours and drummer extraordinaire Kevin Kale) for making it out for a great night of music and dancing.  Also thanks to the crew from CarDon and Associates for giving us the platform (and the truck) to to play for so many great folks along the parade route.  It was a blast!

Although last weekend at Shorty’s and being in the Greenwood Freedom Festival Parade was busy, fun and exciting, this upcoming Pet Monkey weekend schedule dials it up a bit more with three shows in three days in three counties:

Friday:  We’ll be playing 8:00 to midnight at the Fourwinds Resort on Lake Monroe outside of Bloomington.  It’s a beautiful place and we had a great show there last year.  This is our only event at the Fourwinds this summer.  If you are coming, you may want to bring your own folding chair just to assure you get a seat.

Saturday:  The Pet Monkey boys will be playing for the Bicentennial Celebration for the Town of Orleans in Orange County.  Our part of the show is from 5:00 to 6:30.  There are other great acts before and after our music and people in Orleans are super friendly.  It promises to be a great and patriotic time

Sunday:  Our weekend concludes at the scenic (and tasty) Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville (Johnson County).  We are on the stage from 2:00 – 5:00 and are happy to be back after a fun concert there last year.  Once again, this is our only show here in 2015.  Bargersville is about as far north as Pet Monkey plays and for all our friends in Johnson and Marion counties, we casually invite you to take a shorter drive and hope to see your smiling faces.

Enjoy your weekend, no running with sparklers, God bless the USA!

This Saturday at noon we will be on the Cardon Healthcare Associates float in the Greenwood Freedom Festival Parade.  The above picture was from our time on their float in last year’s parade.  It was truly one of the best times in my life with the band and every monkey agreed.

For me, the weekend is not quite over after the parade as I will finish my performances with a Scott So-Low Show at Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant in Frankln from 6:30 – 9:30.  Your margarita will be waiting!

Wherever you are, whatever you do, do it with gusto and do it with love!  Have a fine weekend everybody!

Private and Public Shows Highlight Pet Monkey Weekend

Yo and hello!

I hope everyone made the transition to June without any incidents!  For our first weekend in June, Pet Monkey has a couple of events on the books

TO GO WITH STORY 'INDIA-ENVIRONMENT-ANIMALS-MONKEYS'  In this file photograph dated 25 October 2007, an Indian monkey perches on an electric wire above a busy parking area of New Delhi. Just weeks after the Indian capital's  deputy mayor toppled to his death fending off a pack of monkeys, the animals have gone back on the attack, sparking fresh concerns about the simian menace.  One woman was seriously hurt and two dozen other people were given first aid after monkeys rampaged through a neighbourhood in east Delhi over the weekend, media reports have said 12 November 2007. Efforts to drive out the animals is complicated by the fact Hindus view them as a living link to Hanuman, the monkey god who symbolises strength.

While the Indian Monkeys wreak havoc down on the out manned Indian populace, most Indiana residents have far fewer incidents with the indigenous Indiana Pet Monkeys.  In fact, when it comes to power lines, these Pet Monkeys leave that all in the capable hands of the local REMC  In fact, it’s the local Orange County REMC where we have a private show in Paoli Friday afternoon.  This  is year three for us and it is usually catered by the Schnitzelbank out of Jasper.  It’s ALWAYS a great time seeing and meeting the folks.  CAN’T WAIT!!!

The next night we’re exactly 90 miles north at Whiteland’s famous Whit’s Inn.  It is a 9:00 – 1:00 show and we are starting to get a bit of a following here so here’s hoping the momentum continues.  No cover, no jacket, no tie, just good food, drinks and music.  We hope if you are in the area, you can make it out!

WHITSINN- June 6Stay away from the poison ivy and find yourself a four-leaf clover or two!  Enjoy another Indiana summer and me and the fellas hope to see your sun-tanned face real soon!

Get Your Monkey Runnin’

Amigos and friends:

monkeysonmotorcyclesGet your monkey runnin’.  Head out on the highway.  Lookin’ for adventure.  Not some sandwich made at Subway. (No offense Jared.)

Are YOU looking for adventure?  Well get your kiesters on over to Spencer for a night of (Pet) Monkey mayhem at the American Legion.  Lots of great party and dancing music from 9:00 until 1:00 and, I must say, the locals know how to have a good time.  Drinks are of the American variety (of course) and the prices are somewhere between fair and down right cheap!

AmLegion_May30

Next weekend finds the monkey boys in Paoli for the annual Orange County REMC meeting and party on Friday and then back in Whiteland Saturday night at Whit’s Inn.

Enjoy the heat, enjoy the summer, miss Pet Monkey, that’s a bummer.

Festival Fun Review: Orleans and Franklin

Hey everyone!

With no show (except for a private event) this week, I wanted to review our two events last weekend and thank all those who came, supported, danced and partied with us.

On Friday, the weather for the Dogwood Festival was spectacular and Jessica took our Nikon and got some great shots of the band on the big stage.

dwood2 dwood4 dwood5 dwood6 dwood7 dwood8

This is the third year for Pet Monkey at the Dogwood Festival in Orleans and every year gets better.  With the rides, booths of crafts and lots of great foodie options, it was THE place to be in Orange County for those of all ages.  Our stage was next to some nice folks making kettle corn and it was hard at times to concentrate on the music with the smell of fresh popped corn in the air!  We have to bring out all of our sound artillery to play a stage this size but it was well worth it.

The next night on Saturday, we dolled up for a Derby Party fundraiser at St. Rose of Lima Catholic School in Franklin   We played this event last year as well and the St. Rose gang is a lot of fun to work with and play for.   The Mint Julep beverages were strong, sweet and smooth, Richard Goss of Richard’s Kitchen made some amazing appetizers, Ritter’s provided some grade A custard and Pet Monkey added some rockin’ and dancable tunes.  I think every song we played had a plenty of dancers but before long, it was time to say goodbye, tear down and go.  With the auctions, games and and other avenues of revenue, we hope we helped raise some significant funds for a great school.

Enjoy this beautiful May and look for us in your town or a town near you soon!

Pet Monkey Across Indiana: Orleans to Franklin this Weekend

Hey there!

Rolling Stone

After another fun Friday evening last weekend with the Shorty’s gang in Bedford, Pet Monkey heads to Orange County to be the feature entertainment for the Dogwood Festival in Orleans.  Forecast:  Mostly sunny, 0% chance of rain and temps in the low 70’s so we are looking forward to our first outdoor show of the season.  We’ll be playing from 7:00 – 9:00 and there are bleachers but lawn chairs are never discouraged.  It is a great small town fair atmosphere and come hungry and try some of the local grub.

Dogwood2

Saturday evening finds us in Franklin at the St. Rose Catholic School for a Derby celebration and fund raiser.  Our show will be from 8:00 until 11:00 and last year the St. Rose show was one of our favorites.

I personally had a pilgrimage to Nashville and Memphis this week with my family but hearing all the great music of both of these towns made me miss my Pet Monkey cohorts and I am really excite to play some tunes with my friends!  I hope everyone is ready for a great weekend and hope you have a splendid weekend and May.  May our paths cross soon!

Friday: Rockin’ The Bedrock!

Howdy all:

I have to say right off the bat that we REALLY appreciated everyone coming out to our Bloomington Moose show last Friday.  There were so many friends I hadn’t seen in years and even more who we see every time we play Bloomington.  It was great for all of us!

moose3 moose5 moose4 moose2 moose1Next up for Pet Monkey is a Friday night show (May 24 from 9:00 -1:000 with our friends in Bedford at Shorty’s Den.  We’re starting to grow a following in Bedford and we are really looking forward to meeting some more fine Lawrence County folk while rockin’ it out Pet Monkey style.
