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.

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.


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!

Monkeys on the Moose Trail This Friday

Holla! (or ‘hola’ for our our Spanish speaking friends)

After and fun night doing my solo show last Friday in Indianapolis, it’s time to catch back up with the Pet Monkey boys and entertain a mess of our family, friends and fans at the Bloomington Moose Lodge this Friday evening.  It is an 8:00 – 12:00 show.  but come early and hungry beacuse the food special Friday is fried chicken and seafood and everything is always good and reasonably priced.  There is no cover charge.  Come out and share some good times with us!


This show starts a string of Friday shows in Bedford next week and for the Dogwood Festival in Orleans on May 2nd.  Then me and the boys will again be playing for the St. Rose Catholic School fundraiser in Franklin on Saturday, May 3rd.  We are looking forward to all of it and hope you all are too!

Enjoy the spring, plant some pretty flowers and come get your monkey groove on whenever you can!  And, if you haven’t yet, please be our friend on Facebook!

Friday Evening…Pet Monkey will be at our Whit’s Inn


After a late but fun foray into Scottsburg last weekend (and thanks a bunch to all that came out for a night of basketball and rock ‘n roll)  , Pet Monkey heads north on I-65 for a stop at Whiteland’s Whit’s Inn.

whit1We’ll be playing our brand of classic rock from 9:00 until 1:00 and we invite everyone out for what promises to be a fun evening.  The staff at Whit’s makes everyone feel at home and it’s easy to find at the corner of Tracy Road and US 31 just south of Greenwood.

Enjoy the warmer weather and sunshine and we all look forward to seeing your sunshiny face real soon!

Looking for Tasty Pet Monkey Times at the Tasty Shop

Hey all:

The Pet Monkey Band heads to downtown Edinburgh Saturday evening for a party and a show at the Tasty Shop.  It’s always a great time and we are looking forward to hitting them with a few new tunes.  Here’s a picture of Todd and Tyler going over one of the new arrangements:

Monkey Band-600-thumb-600x381-8753

The show runs from 9:00 until 1:00 and the dance area is quite big enough to boogie on.  If you arrive hungry the a great sandwich menu that is tasty (what else) and reasonable.

As a bonus, me and my Scott So-Low Show will be at the German American Klub on State Road 135 this evening starting at 6:00.  No cover, great food and an outstanding selection of German Biers.

Stay warm everyone and keep those pets indoors when it is this cold!
