Solo Projects.

In the time honoured, Rock&Roll tradition ( See Kiss ), The Monkeys are going to spend a little time on some solo gigs: various theatre, dance and music things, teaching – across the freakin’ country, community building and more schoolin’.

Monkey works will arrives, here and there, as art-things are hard to stop doing, but nothing full-on Dancing Monkey as we looks for some funding to take our dance-moves to new places; where we can continue to challenge ourselves creatively, and evolve artistically.

Monkeys on Late Night.

On November 29th, the Dancing Monkey crew was invited to present their performance video GOOD FORTUNE DRINKS TOO MUCH at LATE NIGHT AT THE PLAZA.

We felt very comfortable in their special brand of madness.
We also discovered that monkeys fit quite snuggly on questionable chesterfields.
