  • Following sold-out stints in 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, Canada’s favourite children's entertainers THE MONKEY BUNCH return to the Drake this February for their annual family friendly residency.

    Their performance will feature songs from their debut album Sho, Mo and the Monkey Bunch, the acclaimed Juno-nominated Power to the Little People and a sneak peek at some new material they are working on for their 3rd release.

    This isn’t your typical children’s concert – it is not only a celebration of music, but of the planet, and sprinkled with some brilliant humour. Why go to a Bank for the best Pri-Mate? Go ape with The Monkey Bunch on Febru-Hairy 1st, 8th, 16th (Family Day) and 22nd at the Drake Underground. There will be a slew of special guests that will join the band during the month-long residency (guests will be announced soon).
