Seymour and Spencer…Check and Check

Friends (old and new),

Thanks for making it out to our two shows last week.  Our Thursday evening Seymour Oktoberfest event went swimmingly and, although it got a bit chilly toward the end, we had a nice group that braved it all.    Dancers graced the ground in front of the stage and a young boy and his sister stole the show.  We hope we did well enough to merit a return next year, and hopefully on a weekend night,  Thanks also to ‘Mac’ who did a great job running our sound.

Our Saturday night return to Spencer’s American Legion was a hoot thanks to Pauline, who was turning 96 the very next day.  She’s the pretty one next to me in the picture below.  Lots of fun, lots of dancing  and then it was over.  Spencer rock star Tyler Parker rocked the house and we hope to do it all again sometime soon.

A couple weekends off for the band and then a 3-nighter in Bean Blossom at the Cedar Rock Haunted Trail on October 24th, 25th and 26th.  Spooky stuff!

Another reminder about our New Year’s Eve Show at the Brown County Playhouse.  As more info gets released, I’ll post it here.  It’s gonna be a night to remember!

Be good, stay dry and warm, and have a monstrous October!

After fun and successful performances in Johnson County last weekend at Whit’s Inn (above) and the St. Rose Fall Festival (below), we are moving our Monkey business a few miles south this week.

First up, we’ll be heading to Todd’s adopted home town of Seymour for show at their Oktoberfest on Thursday evening starting at 8:00.  This is our first Seymour show and we’re hoping for good weather and a great crowd.  We all plan on partaking in some amazing German food while there!  Es wird eine Partei sein!!!   (It will be a party!)

On Saturday, look for all the Pet Monkey boys in Spencer as we re-invade the American Legion there.  Our show starts at 9:00 and we hope to have a great time there just like last time!

In the middle on Friday, I have one of my final Mi Pueblo So-Low shows in Franklin starting at 6:30.  Sera Una Fiesta! (It will be a party!)

Here, there or somewhere, we hope to see you and yours soon.  It’s just not a party without you!

Johnson County…Here We Come


I’m posting this from the shores of Lake Michigan, getting a few days away before two fun-filled Pet Monkey shows in scenic Johnson  County!

After I return to Indiana on Friday I’ll be gathering the gear for a 9:00 – 1:00 show Pet Monkey is playing at Whit’s Inn in Whiteland.  This will be our first show at Whit’s so we’re looking forward to a great night!

This Saturday evening finds Pet Monkey playing 2 hours of classic rock at the St. Rose Catholic School Fall Festival in Franklin.  We have some great friends from St. Rose and we are looking forward to playing for them again.  Our set will be from 5:30 to 7:30.

Signing off from Michigan, see you soon in Indiana!

Brown County Playhouse: Going Bananas With Pet Monkey This New Year’s Eve



This is now official and up on their website, so I wanted to announce our New Year’s Eve Show this year in Nashville at the Brown County Playhouse.  This promises to be a fun venue for a New Year’s Eve party for the entire family.  You can read more about it here and there is even a link to purchase tickets.  If you’ve never been in there, the Brown County Playhouse is a great theater-style venue but we’ll make sure to have plenty of room for dancing!

Around the beginning of October I’ll have more info to release.  We hope you consider this option for a fun and affordable New Year’s Eve party in one of Indiana’s most beautiful destinations.

Mallow Run Winery Wrap-Up: “Two Thumbs Up”


What a fantastic evening we had with our premier performance at Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville yesterday.  When day broke Saturday, the clouds were thick and the temperature was low.  But, as afternoon came, the clouds parted and we got a bit more heat than anticipated.  Once there, the stage was nice sized and we brought a bit more sound gear than normal to be able to satisfy the larger crowds we hoped would arrive.

Our thanks to the folks at Mallow Run for bringing in a bevy of local food trucks that brought out even more people.  We had huge group of friends and Pet Monkey fans out in support, but the trucks and nice weather brought an estimated crowd of 500 or so. With no true sound check, it took us a song or two to get everything dialed in, but once that happened, we just started doing our Monkey thang.  Kids, grandparents and everyone in between were all out enjoying the festivities.  By about half way through our second set, a huge group began to spontaneously dance right in front of the stage.

Before you knew it, we had sang our last song and then an encore and it was time to tear down and go,  For all of us, it was a special night and we appreciate all the new listeners we met and played for.  Hopefully, we’ll see some of you soon at another Pet Monkey event.


Next week, aside from my So-Low Acoustic Show on Friday in Franklin, Pet Monkey sits silent.  The weekend after that, we re-invade Johnson County for two more shows. Pet Monkey plays Whit’s Inn in Whiteland for the first time on Friday night from 9:00 – 1:00.   Then on Saturday we are back at St. Rose Catholic School in Franklin for their fall festival from 5:30 to 7:30.  Until then, be good to each other and, as always, thanks for your support.

A Bit More on the Pet Monkey Mallow Run Winery Show



Two more days until our premier performance at Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville.  The winery is outside Bargersville proper off Whiteland Road and by clicking here you can find a Google map showing you the location.  There is a sign at State Road 37 and Whiteland Road directing you to the facility.

We’ll be playing from 5:00 – 8:00 and there will be a selection of Food Trucks there for your enjoyment, in addition to some amazing wine and cheese plates.  Bring a blanket, bring some lawn chairs and, in light of the cool evenings forecast for this weekend, maybe bring a light jacket or sweater.  In fact, if you are coming to my So-Low show this evening in the Hotel Nashville Gazebo, you may want to bring a sweater as well.

We’re hoping that this show, in addition to a few other shows we are doing later this month, will help us gain a foothold with the fine folks of Johnson County and the Indianapolis south side.  We’d sure appreciate your patronage and feel confident that you and your friends will feel welcome by Pet Monkey and appreciate our classic  rock tunes.  We hope you can make it.  In any case. make it a great weekend!
