Recess Monkey continues to earn a name for themselves for their highly interactive, kid-centered live shows that brilliantly are as fun for parents to watch as their kids. In their high-energy, dance-driven sets, Recess Monkey plays an array of songs from FLYING!, and plenty of their "greatest hits," too. Kids and their parental units zoom around the room with Drew, Daron, and Jack on "Flying," join the Monkey Bar conga line (located everywhere), take a soapy ride at the Bubble Factory, and give that loose tooth an extra jiggle with Dr. Wiggle. From flapjacks to jetpacks and everything in-between, families should be ready for more disco dancing, knock-knock jokes and catchy sing-alongs than you can shake a stick at!
Giving a wacky, fantastical edge to the "everyday lives of kids," Recess Monkey weaves puns, jokes stories, and shenanigans into its songs. No play on words is too much of a stretch, and no rhyme schemes are out of bounds for the group's genre-bending set of catchy, singable and dance-able ditties that NPR described as "inventive, brilliant, multilayered." Audiences call it "a great way to spend an hour rocking out!"
