Upcoming Summer Shows!


Hey everyone!  I wanted to get things updated so all you Pet Monkey fans have ample notice for the next three Pet Monkey shows in Central Indiana.

We next play as one of the featured acts at Stable Studios outside Spencer for their May Super Jam on May 25th.  There will be a number of performers, lots of fun people, the opportunity for a beverage and a high, high likelihood of much fun. I believe a craft fair is also planned for this day long jam.  Once we confirm specifically  when we will likely be playing, I’ll update this post.  This link will take you to the Stable Studios Facebook page and this link is specifically about the May Super Jam!

June 9th on a Saturday evening come see Pet Monkey perform at the Fourwinds on beautiful Lake Monroe.  We will be playing from 8 pm to 11 pm and, weather permitting, we will play on their fancy patio overlooking the marina and the lake.  Always a great time, the pool, food and drinks here are top notch and, no doubt, getting one of their fabulous rooms for the night might be a fantastic plan.

The next weekend on Saturday. June 15th, check us out at one of our favorite Bloomington haunts: The Moose Lodge on Cory Lane.  Playing from 8 pm to midnight, we have so many friends that come there to see us and the staff, food and beverages and the prices are always to our liking.  As an added benefit, the dance floor at the Moose is huge,  rocks and stays full all night long!

If you haven’t seen us for a while, come up and introduce yourself to our new lead guitarist Doc Lockridge.  Doc is Bloomington music scene feature for many years and we sure appreciate him adding his talents to our show.  He sure is a good Monkey!

Everyone be safe, have fun and we all look forward to the next time we see your smiling face!

Getting Back To The Boogie Season!

Hey everyone!  I have been away.  No, not physically.  I have been away from posting here for a variety of reasons.  Truth be said so many musicians and players I know exclusively use Facebook for promotion and I don’t know if anyone reads this at all  If you do please drop me a quick note and let me know.

Nonetheless it a busy couple of weeks coming up for Pet Monkey and the fellas:

April 7 at the Bloomington Moose Lodge

April 8 at the Bargersville Bar & Grill with our friend Kevin Kale sitting in on drums

April 14 at Shorty’s Den in Bedford

Each in their own way, these are great venues and the chance to eat and drink and dance and party exists at all three.  It would be fun to run into you all whenever we are in your neighborhood!

Enjoy the greening of the season. enjoy each other and let Pet Monkey enjoy your company sometime real soon!  We’ll leave the light on for ya!

Your long, lost blogging Pet Monkey,


Festival Monkeyness this Friday!

Hey y’all:



This Friday evening everyone can find Pet Monkey at their local Harrodsburg Heritage Festival.  It’s easy to find…south of Bloomington (or north of Bedford) on State Road 37 and take the Harrodsburg exit.  Easy as pie!  Our two hour set should begin somewhere between 7:30 and 8:00 and we’ll be playing all your favorite P Monk jams!

Additionally, mark your calendars for our upcoming show at the Mallow Run Winery on June 4th.  This marks our third year in a row at this great location and this year our show coincides with their Strawberry Festival.  The winery is located just outside Bargersville in Johnson County and our show begins promptly at 5:30.  I promise you a great time!

My Scott So-Low Show schedule is ramping up starting this Saturday (Mi Pueblo Restaurant in Franklin) and over the next few weeks I’ll be in Indianapolis, Franklin and Nashville.  You can get all the info here on my website.

Have a great weekend and, if we don’t see you sooner, we’ll see you later!

2 Straight Weeks of Monkeydom

Hey friends,

If you need a  Pet Monkey fix these next couple of weeks, you are in luck!

Tonight (Friday, May 13th) check us out bedrockin’ Bedford from Shorty’s Den on the north side.  Things are always high energy and the dance floor stays warm all night long!  We’ll be starting at 9:00 so we hope to see all our Lawrence County friends and fans!

Next Friday on May 20th we will be performing for the Harrodsburg Heritage Festival for a 2 hour show starting at 8:00.  We really enjoy playing for festivals because of the diversity of the crowd and we are truly looking forward to meeting new friends and getting another dose of the Indiana festival experience.  You should come and experience it too!

Another show I want to remind you of is our June 4th performance at Bargersville’s Mallow Run Winery.  It will be their Strawberry Festival so between the Pet Monkey music, Mallow Run wine and Indiana strawberries, anyone can find something they like.  Our Saturday show begins at 5:30 pm.  Bring your blanket, lawn chairs, favorite munchies and best friends for a show not to be missed!

Also, for a more mellow evening, come out for one of my upcoming Scott So-Low Shows in Franklin, Indianapolis and Nashville. You can check all that info out here on my scotstrange.com website.

Enjoy the Indiana May everyone and we hop to see your summer smiling face soon!

Big Weekend Done But More Fun To Come!



What a splendid weekend for all of us in Pet Monkey this weekend!  Our Thursday evening show in Orleans for the Dogwood Festival went so well and we reconnected with  old fans and friends and even had the inevitable lemon shake-up.  Friday’s show at the Moose Lodge was great to see so many B-Town friends and have so many up and dancing.  Saturday’s Skid Row performance was rockin’ and we celebrated the birthday of guitarist Tyler and a couple other ladies in the bar to celebrate theirs.

While Pet Monkey takes a week off I have set my Scott So-Low summer schedule with new shows at the Hotel Nashville in Nashville, Apple Works in Trafalgar and the ever popular Mi Pueblo Restaurant in Franklin.  You can view my schedule by clicking here and linking to my website at www.scottstrange.com .

Look for Pet Monkey at upcoming shows in Bedford, Harrodsburg and Bargersville and all that info can be discovered here.  Have a great day, and a great May.  And make your plans to see Pet Monkey play!

Three BIG Pet Monkey Shows this Extended Weekend!

Hey everyone!

Scott here, back and ready to rock with three stylish Pet Monkey shows this coming Thursday thru Saturday  Let me begin by saying how much I appreciate all the Pet Monkey fellas for filling in working harder and letting me take an easier road these past few months as I recover from February’s open heart surgery.  Along with my wife Jessica, Tyler, Todd, Doug, David and Rick have personified not only what music and commitment, but also what love truly means and it will forever choke me up to know how when times were tough and the chips were down all of them had my back.  How blessed I am to be doing exactly what I love with guys I couldn’t love more.

That being said now on to the events:

Thursday (April 28th) beginning at 7 pm Pet Monkey will take the stage once again for the Orleans Dogwood Festival  This has become an annual event for us and, although our schedule this year has us on a Thursday as opposed to a Friday, we are looking forward to fun festival times with rides, elephant ears and my personal favorite the lemon shake-up!  Just get on State Road 37 head south and when you hear Pet Monkey playing look for a place to park  Life won’t get much easier than that!

Friday (April 29th) has us back at one of our favorite Bloomington locations: the Moose Lodge on Cory Lane just north of 2nd Street  Good food, reasonable and tasty libations and Pet Monkey’s four-hour show make this a Friday evening not to miss!  We will take the fabulous Moose Stage at 8:00.

Saturday (April 30th) we get to bring out our most rockin’ gear for a night at Skid Row in Spencer  The show begins at 9 pm and you can expect four hours of Monkey Mayhem, especially in honor of first chair guitarist Tyler Parker’s birthday!  Come get your ya-ya’s out and wish Tyler an awesome birthday.

I also want to let everyone know we have booked another show with the good folks of Mallow Run Winery in Bargersville.  June 4th will find us playing a fun outdoor three-hour show  Mark your calendars for an event that just screams Pet Monkey Summer!

Hope to see everyone for one (or all) of these shows  I thank you  Pet Monkey thanks you  And your country thanks you.

Groovin’ Southern Indiana This Weekend

Hey monkey gang!

First off, a big thanks to everyone who helped rock the dance floor at our New Year’s Eve show at the Moose in Bloomington!  We had a great time!

For our friends and fans in Bartholomew and Scott Counties, look for the Pet Monkey Brigade to invade this weekend.  On Friday, it’s an evening with our Moose friends at the Moose Lodge in Columbus with an early start at 7:00.  On Saturday, get a nap because we’re starting the show at 10:00 pm for Bobby’s The Hill Bar & Grill in Scottsburg.  It’s always fun for the fellas and me to get out of town and see friends so don’t be a party pooper!

Have a safe yet dramatic weekend everybody!  And if you haven’t watched ‘Making A Murderer’ on Netfilx, you really, really should!
