Pet Monkey on ‘Moose Year’s Eve’!!

happy-new-yearPet Monkey friends, fans and family:

I just got word tonight that the Moose Lodge in Bloomington has opened up sales of their New Year’s Eve dinner / dance tickets to the public.  Tickets can be bought as a couple or in singles and can be bought directly from the Moose Lodge office.   Dinner is included with the tickets or they can be bought as admission only.  Call the Moose Lodge at 812-336-5281 and they can answer any questions or help you with tickets.

You get an extra hour of Pet Monkeyness on New Year’s Eve as we’ll be starting at 8 pm and playing until 1 am.  We hope you can make it out to celebrate with us and, regardless of where you are, take it easy, don’t drive if you shouldn’t and drive defensively.

Happy New Year y’all!

Pet Monkey and the Spooky Halloween Party at Shortys!

Friends and goblins!


Halloween and a Pet Monkey show are two great reasons to make it out to Shorty’s Den this Saturday evening from 9:00 – 1:00.  Here is a pic from a previous Pet Monkey Halloween Show where me and the boys dressed as the Village People, complete with a rendition of ‘YMCA’!


Shorty’s is always a great venue and the crowd never disappoints us.  Please try to come out and see the party!


As for my Scott So-Low show, I’ll be at the German American Klub in Indianapolis Friday evening from 6:00 – 9:00 and at the Apple Works outside Trafalgar Saturday from 2:00 – 5:00.

Everyone have a safe yet spooky Halloween and we hope to see your scary face sometime real soon!

Monkey Stop at the Moose Saturday Night


Life got ya down?  Come on out and go APE this Saturday evening at the Columbus Moose in beautiful architecturally innovative downtown Columbus.  It’s a new club and this is only or second visit.  We had a great time here a few months ago and are looking forward to seeing our friends both old and new.  It’s an early start (and finish) for us as we play from 7:00 until 11:00.  There’s a great dance floor and we intend to fill it again and again.

Have a great weekend everybody but don’t forget that Monkey thing at that Moose thing!

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:

Tyler Parker Pet Monkey guitarist playing!

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.

Everyone enjoy a great weekend (crossing fingers, no rain until Sunday)!
