Monkey's X formed in late 2010 when a group of local musicians got together to explore the idea of a very straight forward cover band; One that could cover a relatively diverse mix of classic rock. It was designed from the onset to be fun for the players and for the listeners. The intent was to gradually expand the book of music to keep things fresh and keep the tunes so recognizable that virtually everyone listening found it hard to not tap their toe or sing along. They've often been quoted as saying "If you don't know the song in the first few notes, one of us has had too much to drink!" Oh you're gonna know the songs. They plan it that way. Along the way they've begun to acquire regular patrons in every venue we perform. You can't help but like the tunes.
