Offsite Impact First Friday Impact

Offsite Impact First Friday...

To say the August First Friday was a roaring success is an understatement.  A combination of pleasant summer weather, GreekFest happening a block away and Offsite Impact playing at Cheeky Monkey was the best possible mix to kick off the Civic Holiday weekend. We were very familiar with the talent of three members of Offsite Impact. Dale White (Keyboards/ Back-up Vocals), Barry White (Frontman/Vocals/Bass Guitar) and Paul Eastman (Drums) have all played at Cheeky Monkey previously in other bands.  Paul, being a very versatile and accommodating drummer, has played in at least four different bands appearing over the years at Cheeky Monkey.  We were so very impressed with Offsite Impacts sound and stage presence, that we sincerely hope Paul has found a long lasting band to set his kit up with. Offsite Impacts playlist is an impressive selection of very dance-able hits from over the decades.  Suspect they choose these particular songs to ...

Do You Know Eric Ethridge&...

Well you should! Eric is a local boy to be proud of who is making waves in the country music scene. From his website... Eric Ethridge’s brand started to gain serious momentum in 2015 after the release of a series of orchestra country-pop covers, one of which garnered him a mention in Rolling Stone Magazine. Subsequently his social media presence enjoyed a drastic increase with over 275,000 YouTube hits and an increase to over 1500 YouTube subscribers. In August of 2015 Eric was the runner-up in the Boots and Hearts emerging artist showcase, and has since had continued interest from both American and Canadian record labels.

July First Friday with Blackmore & Blackmore &

July First Friday with...

Mike Blackmore has played at Cheeky Monkey many times over the years.  As has Dwayne Cloes.  Both have been here as part of bands and played here solo.  During the 2017 Record Store Day, they played here for the first time as a duo.  We were so impressed, we asked them to come back - so they did - for the July First Friday. With Mike on guitar, d'jembe (hand drum) and looping machine, and Dwayne playing bass guitar they created a unique musical experience.  You could not find two more different people in their history and approach to music, but somehow the combination of their wealth of talent works wonderfully for them. Armed with a playlist of originals and cover songs such as 'Knocking On Heaven's Door' and my personal favourite Mike has done for years, but never the same way twice, 'House of the Rising Sun', they easily entertained the audience ...

The Gypsy Flats Rocking In The...

The Gypsy Flats are a local band that clearly enjoy playing live music.  During the June 2, 2017 First Friday at Cheeky Monkey, the audience clearly sensed that by the reaction and comments they made. Playing primarily music that was popular before they were born, The Gypsy Flats give the songs penned by the likes of John Prine, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson and John Fogerty a special touch creating their own sound.  Each member of the band brings a unique ingredient to the mix to create the perfect recipe for an entertaining evening. The Gypsy Flats consists of Cassy Dube, lead singer and rhythm guitar player backed by Marc Gauthier on bass, Ryan Smith on drums and vocals along with Mike Beauchamp on lead guitar and vocals. In their playlist are also several original songs.  Currently they are booked to play at several of the upcoming summer festivals such as the Kinsmen Ribfest July 8, headlining ...
