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 arrive, 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.

Dancing Monkey’s Nathaniel Schmidt is about present his latest musical endeavour called Nobody Say Anything. The group is comprised of Nathaniel with Chris Dadge, Mark, Limacher, and Nate Waters. They play music like you’ve maybe never heard but maybe you have – but not from them.
Thanks to a Small Experiments Grant from CADA (Calgary Arts Development), they were able to put this show together and experiment with new sounds and new ways discovering sounds. It would be great if you could join them at this live concert event in fulfillment of the the grant. There will be beer and a few other special surprises.
June 29th, Festival Hall, 1215 10 Ave SE, Calgary, Alberta. Doors open at 7pm.
