The 100 Monkeys are a party/covers band with a funky repertoire spanning 6 decades. From Queen to The Manic Street Preachers, Fleetwood Mac to Alanis Morrisette and Marc Cohen to Madonna… there’s something for everyone!They were created in 2014 by local musician, and
Director of Haywards Heath’s Rok Skool, Leon Kaye. The now established line-up of friends work hard to re-create some of our favourite dance floor-fillers, as well as many long-forgotten classics it’s great to hear performed live. “It’s all about melody and groove when it comes to choosing songs to cover”, says Leon. They certainly do pack a mighty harmonic punch!
The Cover Up is a 4 piece covers band. We seem to specialise in 50th birthday parties – maybe that’s just showing our age – but we are available for any type of party/gathering where there are people who’d like to dance, sing, listen to live music and have a good time. For all the band members being in The Cover Up isn’t the ‘day job’.
It’s a means of entertainment and our view is that if we are having fun our audience will have fun too!
Our set list covers a wide range of songs that show the band members’ eclectic musical taste. From funk to rock to pop….. and back again and our main criteria when choosing a new song is ‘Will this get people onto the dance floor?’.
Newick Folk play the music of these islands. This means mainly traditional music plus anything else that takes our fancy. That could range from Lily the Pink and My Old Man’s a Dustman to the themes from Captain Pugwash or Blackadder and maybe even Rave on / Bye Bye Love or the La Mer. We set out to entertain you and we love it when people get up and dance. We play at lots of Ceilidhs for Weddings and significant birthday events where there is a wide range of ages.
We are based in Newick and play many local events and sessions throughout Sussex with occasional ventures to Kent, Surrey and the nearer bits of London
