Born from the artistic endeavor which is Monkeys in the Dark™, the inevitibility of a musical project came to fruition in the summer of 2010.
Since the beginning of 2011, Monkeys in the Dark was reborn as a trio (Michael, Hal, Joseph) performing instrumental sets at various events, including a number of free local festivals and fundraisers, including the C3 Exhibition, Camp Jinka, Paws for a Cause and Soulsational Wellness Festival. The 3 performed at venues such as:
FuBar|Bayville; Surf Taco|Belmar & Surf Taco|Jackson; Macyntire's Pub|Toms River: The Saint|Asbury; Brighton Bar|Long Branch, to name just a few.
About 8 months later, fate shifted in the band's favor and the peak of summer brought us Jen, Sean and soon after our most recent addition, Dan. As 2011 comes to a close, the band is rejuvinated and complete, visiting all our favorite local spots to show off the new sound. And with the November 19 completion of our studio, Monkeys have our sights set on recording a 5- and a 6- song EP during the upcoming year.
