Bad Monkey are a 4 piece power pop, punk rock, classic rock, indie band with soul from Leeds and Staffs. We play original songs full of riffs, rhymes and rhythms. We have played frequent and regular well received gigs throughout Leeds with reviews ranging from ‘tasty and energetic’, a hard act to follow’ and “ a tour de force”. We have an exiting new line up for 2010!

The music press in Leeds have given us glowing reviews for our music
From No Title magazine Leeds Sept/Oct
"With the storming Get On It title track, Bad Monkey seem like one Leeds band who are sure to make a name for themselves. This tune is brilliant, great riff, good vocals this is a fresh slice of rock n roll to get exited about"
From Sandman magazine September
"Bad Monkey are ready to take their current hoard of gig-tested numbers to the next level. Their approach, indebted to The Clash and The Who, no doubt has their fans departing their gigs drenched in sweat and grinning from ear to ear"
Bad Monkey love Glastonbury and it is an honour for us to be associated with the festival in anyway
Love and Respect
Mick, Jenny, Ryan and Paddy xxxxxx
