Vinyl Monkeys – 3 ‘young lads’ from West Dorset making a name for themselves on the local music scene

the band was formed in march 2000……….

 

all three members had been regular working musicians for a number of years but had gradually realised that they weren’t playing the music they really wanted to play……….

friends for 15 years but a chance meeting of all three sowed the seeds that grew into the vinyl monkeys………

they quickly realised that they had a mutual taste in music……….

the band was formed – a short intensive rehearsal period and then an initial ‘warm up’ gig quickly snowballed into a busy working schedule……….

 

the band soon began to attract a good following at regular venues around the south west……….

the band continues to go from strength to strength with a core following of fans across the south west……….

vinyl monkey music is a cross section of all the best in modern indie/rock………. stereophonics…..walk the moon…..kings of Leon…..cee lo green …..

 

vinyl monkeys cover a wide range of great songs and mix in their own original music to create a strong vibrant sound……….

In August 2014 Bill left and has been replaced by Ryan Halsey. Ryan is a fantastic drummer and has given the Vinyls a new direction and a youthful look!
