Open air Live Music – Saturday 24th
The Monkey Men are here to wildly shake your body. Back to basics and full of energy, they take the rawness of 1940s and 50s swing and rock n roll to bring a smile to your face.
The 8 piece set up with horn section and killer voice from Julien Chetcuti can really break the groove that will get your feet tapping profusely. Heavily influenced by Louis Prima and Wynonie Harris their repertoire cuts in and out of swing, jive, rock n roll, blues and surf.
Started by British double bassist David Reeson, this international band come from 5 countries. They are based in Barcelona and have only just started breaking into the music scene with just 10 months to their name. But their live mix of raw energy have catapulted them by fans who cannot stop their hips gyrating.
They play a mix of covers and their own material which means there’s something for everyone. The Monkey Men are extremely hairy as you would expect, love bananas and spend most of their time
rattling the cage.
