Go Ape in Febru-Hairy with The Monkey Bunch as they Return to the Drake for the 4th Annual Residency!!

Toronto, ON – Febru-Hairy, 2014 – Back by popular demand, The Monkey Bunch return to the Drake for their annual Family Febru-Hairy Residency. Following back to back sold-out stints in 2011, 2012 and 2013, Canada’s favourite children’s entertainers The Monkey Bunch are about to blow the snow-suit off the Drake this February. After taking a break from live performances to work on a musical for young audiences, The Monkey Bunch are now looking forward to performing at The Drake Underground. It all begins Sunday February 2nd,  at 3pm and will feature songs from their debut album Sho, Mo and the Monkey Bunch, the acclaimed Juno-nominated Power to the Little People and a sneak peek at some new material they are working on for their 3rd release and new musical for young audiences called Garbage Girl.

There will be a slew of special guests that will join the band during the month-long residency (Seán Cullen, Ed Robertson from BNL’s, Ron Hawkins from Lowest of the Low, Lindy and Elvira Kurt). This isn’t your typical children’s concert – it is not only a celebration of music, but of the planet, and sprinkled with some brilliant humour.

Why go to a Bank for the best Pri-Mate?

Go ape with The Monkey Bunch on Febru-Hairy 2nd, 9th, 16th, 17th(Family Day Pancake Brunch) and  23rd at the Drake Underground.  Details listed below.

Monkey Bunch rocks out for kids

June 6th, 2012 by

Saskatoon StarPhoenix – June 5, 2012

BY STEPHANIE MCKAY, THE STARPHOENIX

There’s something wonderful about watching performers who have toured with big-time Canadian artists like Jann Arden, Colin James and k-os, get silly with an audience full of bouncing children. That’s just what Ontario group The Monkey Bunch brings to the table. Their show is a fun, silly rock concert with an impressive musical pedigree.

The Monkey Bunch comes with original songs – Poopie Diaper is probably the catchiest – and a few re-purposed covers. Included in the 45-minute show are an environmentally slanted We Are the Champions (“no time for polluters”) and The Monkees theme (“Hey hey, we’re the Monkey – Bunch”).

Led by firecracker Shoshana Sperling, the Monkey Bunch encourages “outside voices” and jumping around in what can only be called a toddler mosh pit. Maury LaFoy, Graham Powell and Lyle Molzan add musical accompaniment to the kid-friendly lyrics.

To make sure the show has that rock show feel, there is plenty of call and response and shouts of “I love you Saskatoon!”

It’s a great show for smaller kids, with chances to rock the alphabet, sing about taking care of the Earth and wiggle their bums.

The kids probably won’t absorb the digs at Stephen Harper, but the Monkey Bunch wants to entertain the parents too.
