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!
