Big Pet Monkey Weekend On Tap

Hey everybody

Although I have been busy with solo shows the past few weeks Pet Monkey has had a few weeks of R & R before heading into a Friday / Saturday combo this weekend.

60% (3 out of 5 Einstein) of Pet Monkey members graduated from Edgewood High School in scenic Ellettsville Indiana and we all gained much of our love of music through programs there.  In fact this is a picture of Tyler when he played guitar for the swing choir:

We will be playing immediately after the Edgewood Mustang football game (9:00 – 9:30) at the high school for an alumni event sponsored and set up by the EHS Class of 1980.  There is no admission, bring your lawn chairs, and if you graduated or event at one time went to Edgewood you are invited.  We’ll be providing music and Pet Monkey mayhem until the stroke of 11:30.   Hope to see many Mustang friends young and old there!

On Saturday we are back in Bloomington for an epic show at the Moose Lodge  It’s steak night and come early and stake out your table.  Our last gig here had Moose staff bringing in extra tables to accomodate everybody.  Our show runs from 8:00 until midnight and I promise you’ll want to dance!

It’s always great to have a fun show to look forward to and this weekend, we’ve struck it rich!  We hope you can make it but, if not, have a safe weekend and let’s hook up soon!

Do Something Lazy This Saturday!

Hello friends:

The Pet Monkey fellas are getting ready, as we speak, to mosey on down to Gosport this Saturday evening as the prime entertainment for the Gosport Lazy Days.

The festival actually starts on Thursday the 13th and runs through Saturday the 15th.  Click here to go to the actual Lazy Days website.  We start grooving at 8:00 and play until 10:00, but there are plenty of things to see and hear, including the bluegrass band “Indiana Boys” right before we take the stage.

For those of you unaware, Gosport is located just off State Road 67 between Spencer and Martinsville.  We hope to see you.  Bring a lawn chair and sit your lazy backside right in it!

: – Look for Pet Monkey next Saturday in Columbus at the Columbus Moose for a 7:00 – 11:00 show ,  We are hoping for good things for our first show in Columbus!

Take care and be lazy!

After such a busy schedule these past few weeks Pet Monkey gets a brief respite this weekend from playing.  Saturday, August 1st finds us back at one of Tyler’s favorite haunts: the Spencer American Legion.

The Scott Solo Show Train rides on this weekend on both nights.  On Friday evening, from 6 – 10, my show will be at Hotel Nashville in scenic Nashville for a Gazebo Party.  It’s a cookout served buffet style with a drink and a dessert for $12.  Saturday I am back at Mi Pueblo Restaurant in Franklin playing from 6:30 – 9:30.  Bring a hunger for some great Mexican fare, a thirst for some cool margaritas and I’ll provide the tunes.

Pet Monkey Southbound to Scottsburg this Saturday

Hey everyone:

Nice weather this week, eh?  After our show last Saturday at 37 Junction (Thanks again Alan and Kim) the ride back north got wet and by the time I got home I was checking my car for a paddle!  But we met some new fans and hope to build even more our next visit.  The stage at 37 Junction is bigger than most and we were able to set our full light show and it looked mighty impressive!  Thanks for the extra effort Rick and Todd!

This Saturday takes us a bit further into southern Indiana for a return trip to Scottsburg and The Hill Bar & Grill.  Our music starts at 10:00 and I recommend getting there a bit early for the great food from the restaurant that they serve in the bar area.  Scott County always treats Pet Monkey well and we are looking forward to seeing friends and fans old and new this weekend!

For our Marion / Johnson county friends, I’ll be doing my Scott So-Low Show this Friday evening from the patio at Mi Pueblo Mexican Restaurant in Franklin starting at 6:30.  Hopefully we get full cooperation from Mother Nature!

Hang in there everybody.  Just realize you might need this or this before you once again (hopefully) need this.

A Less Stressful Weekend for the Pet Monkey Crew

Happy days friends!

We are almost recovered from our long 4th of July weekend with shows at Lake Monroe, in Orleans and in Bargersville.  We had so much fun and want to thank everyone who made it out to listen.  By Sunday evening, we were pretty pooped, but playing music is such a passion for all of us so you can bet we’d do it all over again!

After that string of shows, Pet Monkey is pleased to bring you one solitary party this weekend:  Saturday night with our friends at the 37 Junction Bar & Grill in Judah.

newmonjkeyThis location (about halfway between Bedford and Bloomington just off State Road 37) is perfect for our fans from both of those locales craving for some Pet Monkey time.

As for me, I’ll be flying solo with my So-Low Show at the German American Klub in Indianapolis on Friday evening starting at 6:00.  A bier, a brat, and a Scott, can’t beat it!

Have a good one everyone and don’t forget your sun screen and an umbrella!

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

My friends:

dave1 parade15

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!

Pet Monkey Sightings this Weekend: Bedford & Greenwood

Hello all:

Shortys june 26We, the member of Pet Monkey, have multiple segments of fun and good tidings set up for this upcoming weekend.  First: a visit to Bedford to rock the Friday night away with our friends and followers at Shorty’s Den.  The last few times at Shorty’s have been epic and Friday will be no different.  Good food, reasonable and tasty drinks and plan to dance from 9:00 until 1:00.


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!
