3 Monkeys, Skegness Scooter Weekend

1 member down tonight due to illness the band took to the new stage to a packed room. Full of Scooter boys and a few Rude boys to boot.


We’re back again in the Summer, so make sure you stick it in your diary.

Staincross WMC

Our second visit to Staincross and what a nice club. A great place to play with a really welcoming audience.

Just about to sound check.
Sound check, before we tape the cables down.

Hopefully see you guys next year.

The Lupset, Wakefield.

Easter weekend was a busy one. Our second gig of the weekend was at The Lupset. Despite the cold wind, the audience stayed and danced the afternoon away.

Unfortunately our stage looked like the local tip and got worse as the day went on.

Firstly thanks to Adam for jumping in on the Pots & Pans.

A massive Thanks to ‘Our Colin’ for standing in on Lead vocals who did a terrific job.

We’re back in again August Bank Holiday so pop it in your diary.

We performed at Guy and Angie’s wedding last night and what a lovely couple they are.

Guy & Angie

The floor was full all night and from the comments the guests loved it.

It’s always nice to be part of of someone’s Special day.

Here’s to the very happy couple.

Batley & Birstall RAFA Club

A fantastic night to a packed room. The dance floor was filled all night long and some terrific feedback from the management.

Sounds like we’re going back there in the near future.

Venue 23 10th Feb

It was a meeting of the genres at Venue 23 Wakefield.

Supported by Sharp Class and playing to an audience of almost 300 we kept them on the floor all afternoon.

Huge thanks to the Sound tech crew who made us sound great getting us up and running in just 15 mins.

We must have impressed the management as we were booked again in June before we left.

Search ticket source to book.

Black Horse Wakefield

Terrific gig on Saturday. Pumping crowd where we went down a storm. Thanks to Mark for depping on Sax.

We were rebooked for another visit before we finished the set. Sorry we interrupted the boxing, but most didn’t seem to mind.

Thanks to Lucy for the artwork

See u soon

Brid 2023

We had a storming time at Brid. A bit hectic with two gigs in one day due to an establishment changing hands and a mix up with the booking. A logistical nightmare moving the PA around but we certainly didn’t disappoint.

We’re all getting a bit old to carry this stuff around 🤣🤣


Martin House

Some of the band had the honour and privilege to play for the residents and families of Martin House Hospice.

Due to an evening commitment we were only able to open the show and did so with the help of the wonderful Claire on Sax. A short set but wonderfully received.

There is nothing better for a musician than seeing people thoroughly enjoying themselves with total abandon.

The theme was ‘Hawaiian’ which was a shock to our system as were usually black and white but we embraced the day and threw ourselves into it.

We have no hesitation in volunteering our services next year.

Cazz Fest

What can we say!? The best bit of self indulgence we’ve ever been involved with.

We had an absolute ball playing 2 sets without a break, but the ‘crowd’ were fantastic.

Caroline (Cazz) seemed to have a fabulous time and let’s hope that it becomes an annual event.

And thanks for the pies… they were delicious for breakfast 😂👍

Wakefields got Ska

The first of many. An epic launch of the new Wakefields got Ska at Venue 23.

The Legend Rhoda Dakar took the stage with us. We played a tribute to her early career in the Bodysnatchers with Do Rock Steady and she complemented us on the arrangement and performance.

Overall a brilliant night and blinding success.

A Happy anniversary to Forsyth & Shell

Castleford Tigers

Into the FanZone on such a small stage, but what an audience. They weren’t all totally au fait with skankin’ but boy did they do some dancing.

Unfortunately the Tigers didn’t do that well, but we did pick up some terrific feedback
