Pet Monkey Retakes ‘The Hill’!

Hey hey everybody:


After a great time and a great show on our initial visit last July, Pet Monkey heads back to Scottsburg this Saturday for another date at ‘The Hill’ Bar & Grill.  This is a nice club with a big stage and an even bigger dance floor.  The food and menu here are top notch.  Best of all, it’s only a minute or two off I-65 at the Scottsburg exit.  We’ll be starting at 10:00 and hope you can get out to see the show!

For those that missed it, here is a link to our post about our New Year;s Eve show at the Brown County Playhouse in Nashville.  It ought to be a special time so bring the family and share some monkey love this New Year’s Eve!

Be cool, but try not to be cold.

December 1st, time for some New Year’s Eve Details

Hello everyone!

Just a month to go before the Going Bananas With Pet Monkey New Year’s Eve Show at the Brown County Playhouse and I just wanted to lay out the details for those interested in joining us for what should be a fantastic evening.


You can click here to get tickets reserved directly through the Playhouse and the $18.75 price includes admission and a champagne toast at midnight.  In addition to our music and a great place to dance, there will also be games and prizes throughout the evening.

If you are wanting to make Nashville an overnight destination, we highly recommend Hotel Nashville.  They are offering a one night package that includes a one or two bed room, fresh flowers and champagne in your room, dinner for two in their on-sire restaurant ‘Darlene’s’, two tickets to our New Year’s Eve show at the Brown County Playhouse and a continental breakfast in the morning.  Less than two blocks north of the Playhouse, Hotel Nashville also has a great indoor pool, sauna and spa.

The package is priced at $189 and to arrange your reservations you can call 800-848-6247.  A second night is available for a total price of $259 if you want to stay on December 30th or January 1st in addition to New Year’s Eve.

We hope you consider spending your New Year’s Eve with us this year.  Pet Monkey is looking forward to great things in 2015, but the greatest thing would be to start it off with you!

As we approach Thanksgiving, we just wanted to thank those of you that keep the Pet Monkey train moving down the track.  To our friends, our families and our fans, we appreciate you more than you ever know.

We also appreciated the good times we experienced last Saturday at Edinburgh’s Tasty Shop II.  We got to rock-it with a new crowd and that’s always fun.  Here’s a pic of us on their stage and another of Sandy the bartender / waitress who kept everyone happy throughout the night.tasty1 tasty2Next up is a road trip to Scottsburg for a return engagement at ‘The HIll’.  Our first trip down last summer was lots of fun and we are looking forward to doing it again on December 6th.

In the meantime, I’ll have my So-Low Acoustic Show at the Edelweiss Restaurant on November 21st and clicking here brings you all the details.

Lastly, here is another reminder to get on board the Pet Monkey Train for New Year’s Eve at the Brown County Playhouse in Nashville.  It’s an all ages family event with great food and beverage options.  This link will get you more info and put you swhere you can buy tickets direct.  Hopefully Hotel Nashville will have its New Year’s Eve Package announced soon and I’ll bring all those details to you once they are released.

Hope to see you all soon.  Stay safe and warm and enjoy your Turkey Day!

Next Stop: Tasty Shop!

Hello Pet Monkey friends:

We’re adding new shows for  2015, but want to thank Alan Kinser and the 37 Junction crew for the awesome Saturday night we had last weekend.


37junct2 37junct3

A new ownership and a new attitude help make the whole night rock.  Alan and I grew up just down the street from each other and it was great to be surprised by him and his parents Bill and Linda.  It was also great to see him and his wife dancing on the bar.  The hi-energy audience danced and danced and almost molested George, our inflatable monkey.  We sure look forward to a return date sometime early next year.

This Saturday we are invading Edinburgh for the first time on the stage at the Tasty Shop II.  We hope some of our Johnson and Bartholomew County friends and fans can make it out to help fill the dance floor with ‘monkey mayhem’,  We have few new tunes to roll out so come on out and support live music in Edinburgh.  I bet you like it.  I bet you!

Tasty1New Year’s Eve is drawing closer and it is time to make your plans to ‘Go Banana’s with Pet Monkey in Nashville at the Brown County Playhouse  This is where you click to get all the poop about event and to buy tickets.  My good friend and Hotel Nashville operator Kevin Ault is working on an inclusive package for the evening and I should have that info next week.  We’re planning on barrels of fun…don’t miss out!

Hope to see you soon.  Button up and don’t forget your mittens!  It’s *&%#! cold out there!

Hello everybody:

Just a brief mention of our Pet Monkey show coming up this weekend live from the 37 Junction stage!  This is a clean club with room to dance and a great menu and it is located about half way between Bloomington and Bedford just off, you guessed it, State Road 37!  We are thrilled to be back here and hope you can join us for some classic rock and roll.

For those of you living in the Johnson and Bartholomew County areas, look for our inaugural show next Saturday night at the Tasty Shop II in Edinburgh.

Also, if you are wanting a great evening for New Year’s Eve this year, check out the Brown County Playhouse where, you guessed it again,Pet Monkey will be the main attraction.  Kevin from Hotel Nashville is putting together a New Year;s Eve package and I will have those details shortly.


Bundle up buttercup, and we home to see you again real soon!

Three Nights, Many Frights…Destination: Cedar Rock Haunted Trail!

Hello Pet Monkey friends!

This weekend, Friday, Saturday AND Sunday, you can find the Pet Monkey boys performing in Bean Blossom at the Cedar Rock Haunted Trail.  We play Friday and Saturday from 8:00 – midnight and on Sunday from 8:00 – 10:00.

The last check of the weather for these days shows no rain and decently warm (for late October). Our weekend here last year was spooky fun, but I hear that many improvements have been made in terms of making the stage more accessible to the haunted trail goers.  There are also many options for food and drinks.

If you are going to make it to one haunted event this Halloween season, this would be the one!  Sorry folks, no chainsaws allowed on the band stage.  Unless they’re ours!

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!
