THE CASUALS MAY FIRST FRIDAY A HIT

THE CASUALS MAY FIRST FRIDAY A...

First Friday at the Cheeky Monkey, May 2019: The Casuals Become Everyones’ Riders On The Storm by Brian Hay Many of their roles weren’t set in stone. Bob Martin handled the majority of the vocals but the lead singing was also taken up by David Wright and Bill Hines. Hines also delivered some excellent playing on the harmonica and took the lead guitar part a few times. The variety in their three voice types created interesting harmonies and made them a solid fit for classic rock that included material from the Beatles’ early period, chart toppers from the late 1950’s and even Country influenced songs like ‘Harvest Moon’ by Neil Young. The intuitive partnership between bass player Will McCuaig and drummer Al Wallace insured their rhythm section provided a strong foundation for whatever genre they touched upon. That’s just the technical aspect of what they offered though. First and foremost, they were fun ...

Last Record Store Documentary by Dwayne Cloes

Last Record Store Documentary...

Over the months of August and September 2014 good friend,  talented musician, and now documentarian, Dwayne Cloes has been filming and editing a documentary about Cheeky Monkey - and us, Roland & I who are in essence - Cheeky Monkey. It was a very odd feeling to know someone felt we were worthy of a documentary.  Have to admit it was a lot of fun. So glad we agreed to it, especially once we saw the finished project. We realize that many customers do value what we do, but family and friends with business sense think we are nuts. Yup we are, we admit it. We think Dwayne has captured on film, why we do what we do.  We could not be happier or prouder of the end result.  Hope you enjoy it too. Thank you Dwayne MONDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2014 UPDATE... Have been contacted from the UK by Graham Jones creator ...

Making some NOISE POLLUTION during March First Friday

Making some NOISE POLLUTION...

Noise Pollution at the Cheeky Monkey for March First Friday: Young Band Gives Crowd a Great Time by Brian Hay Musically this band is on solid footing. Ammon Chaikram provides the grounding needed from the bass but adds some jump as well. He’s also a decent drummer, a point that probably strengthens his skills as a timekeeper. Maxx Cabajar does more than just play a guitar. He strives to make the instrument do things that are out of the ordinary and often succeeds beautifully. Chloe Kendel is a superb young drummer, literally one of the best this writer’s seen in some time. Her technical skills are excellent and she’s an imaginative player but that’s only part of what she offers. Her work has a graceful fluidity that can’t be taught. Transitions from beat to fills and back again are so smooth and so natural it’s almost as if she’s a conduit for ...

AUDITIONS: Lambton Young...

AUDITIONS! The Emperor’s New Clothes Lambton Young Theatre Players will be holding auditions January 21st, 22nd, and 23rd for their Spring Production, THE EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES. Based on the traditional story by Hans Christian Anderson, this new adaptation is full of fun, silly situations, larger-than-life characters, and is certainly fit for the times we live in. “I’ve always loved this tale,” says writer/director, Nancy Keys. “On top of the obvious moral of the story, the comic foolishness and posturing by the so-called “important” people is hilarious, and the elaborate craftiness of the two thieves who seek to swindle the Emperor by pretending to weave a magical cloth is brilliant. I can’t promise that the Emperor in this production won’t have a comb-over, but I can promise a very colourful, funny, and entertaining show for big kids and little kids of all ages.” Young people between the ages of nine and eighteen years are welcome to ...
