We’ve recently added a few new shows to the Pet Monkey docket and I wanted to make you all aware of where we’ll be turning up in the next few months. Our next show is in Orleans for the Dogwood Festival on May 2nd. May also has us in Franklin twice for a couple great festivals. We have return engagements booked for 37 Junction and Shorty’s Den, as well as a couple private parties (yeah, we do that) in June. Pet Monkey invades Scottsburg in July for our premier gig at The Hill Bar & Grill. The fellas and I are very excited for our first show in Bargersville at Mallow Run Winery in September. We also have festivals booked in Gosport for the ‘Lazy Days’ and in Seymour for their ‘Oktoberfest’.
You can check out or Schedule page on this site for more definitive information. Finally, if you are looking for a great way to roll into the upcoming weekend, I’ll be doing my So-Low Acoustic Show at the German American Klub‘s Edelweiss Restaurant this Friday from 6:00 – 9:00. The German food there cannot be beat and there are plenty of frosty libation selections to choose from. The Klub is located on State Road 135 on the Indy south side and more info about this show is on my website.
Looking forward to seeing you all soon and thanks again for your support. It’s gonna be a fantastic summer folks!

Friends, friends friends:
Just wanted to get some Post-show photos up from last weekend’s two-nighter in Nashville at the Seasons Lodge.
Both nights we had great friends who dropped in from Bloomington and Martinsville and our buddy Tony Hopkins (show above with his beautiful wife) joined the fellas on stage for a couple songs. It’s always a treat when we get to add Tony’s sweet voice to our show. Here’s a shot of the band just to show our festive mood off as well:
Pet Monkey proper will be off a few weeks to allow some of the guys to get out of town before our summer schedule heats up. As for me and my So-Low Acoustic Show, I have two more nights in Nashville this weekend. On Friday the 11th, see me at the Chateau Thomas Winery from 7:00 – 10:00. It’s a great room and everything is better with wine, even my music. On Saturday the 12th, I’ll be flying solo in the Saloon at Seasons Lodge beginning at 8:30.
I hope to see you all at some point this weekend and be getting ready for some amazing Pet Monkey shows at some amazing new venues all month long in May!

I recovered well today from a rockin’ show at Shorty’s Den in Bedford last night. The crowd was plentiful and the dancing was nearly non-stop. The folks there knew how to have a great time and we appreciated their enthusiasm! We got to do a few new (to Pet Monkey) songs such as ‘Baby Come Back’, ‘Love Train’ and ‘Sara Smile’ and they appeared to go over well. Thanks so much to the great staff at Shorty’s and the wheels are in motion for us to re-book an engagement here in the near future. Here are a few pictures of the fun we had:
This weekend finds Pet Monkey back in the friendly confines of the Saloon at Seasons Lodge in Nashville. Spring in Nashville is quite a sight and so come spend the day, find some great local fare for dinner (such as the dining room at the Seasons) and make it out to the Saloon in time for our 8:30 start.
Until the next time we meet, enjoy the nicer weather and do something nice for someone you love.

Well gang, a bit of miscommunication between the Seasons Lodge staff and the band led to Pet Monkey thinking we were playing this weekend and the bar intending someone else to play. Hopefully, no harm / no foul. Those wanting to see Pet Monkey again at the Seasons Lodge in Nashville will have to wait until the first weekend in April (4th and 5th).
In order to get your Monkey grove in the meantime, you are invited to our inaugral show at Shorty’s Den in Bedford on March 29th. This is an intimate club but, from what I’ve seen, bands are very well received here. We’re looking forward to rocking out there and we hope to see some of our older and newer friends there as well.
The Monkey Men are ready for the spring and summer and we have some exciting new venues and music to unveil. Please take an opportunity to come check out all the good things that our hard work is bringing our way. Doing it all for you…that’s what we aim to do!

Last Saturday evening we had to compete with the BNL Lady Star’s trip to the state championship game, but we still had a large and loud crowd at the 37 Junction on March 8.
Our good friend Amy joined us onstage for a cool rendition of the Carole King song “It’s Too Late” and she sings like a bird. A very hip and sassy bird! We also celebrated Rick’s wife Angie’s birthday. But the big hit was our monkeys, both the stuffed and the inflated varities. Lot’s of picture taken.
All in all, with BNL girls bringing home the title and some fans joining us for a victory nightcap, the Junction was the place to be in Judah!
As the buds form on the trees and the birds begin singing, the nice weather always brings out great crowds to Nashville in the spring. And, when in Nashville, you can’t miss another weekend of monkey musical mayhem at the Saloon at the Seasons Lodge.Both Friday and Saturday, come check us out, starting at 8:30 both nights. It’s state law. Hope to see your smiling little faces!

Just completed a nice weekend at The Season’s Lodge in Nashville and made it out of town in front of the sleet, ice and snow. Also met some fine folks from all over Indiana (and Ohio and Kentucky too) and it’s great to get to interact with such a wide ranging audience. Thanks to all who made it out and kept us on our toes with requests ranging from ‘Cher’ to ‘Johnny B. Goode’.
This Saturday we’ll be heading somewhat south to a return trip to 37 Junction. We had a great time there in our first visit late last year and hope for more of the same this weekend. Clicking here will get you a map of where to go, but it is easy to get to just off State Road 37 about halfway between Bedford and Bloomington.
The weather is expected to let up, so come get your ya-ya’s out and experieence some Pet Monkey mayhem. I dare ya!
