When I featured them in my Sunday Morning Coffee show I wrote this,
“We move away from the stars, the incredibly talented, the TV programme and return to where music lives, music belongs: with ordinary people, playing together, passing on tunes and skills, enjoying their music in their own homes.
Real music. That’s what I celebrate today and I celebrate all those who play and jam at home, with friends, but I do so in the company of The MountnMonkeys.
Never heard of The MountnMonkeys? Don’t worry, neither have they. As far as I am aware they don’t have a name: they just enjoy a jam.
Why then “The MountnMonkeys”? Because one of the players posts their videos under the name of “MountnMonkey” and, so, I christened them. They all live in and around Huntington in West Virginia.”
I hope you enjoy their music.
Mountnmonkeys Cold, Frosty Morning
There must be so much talent hidden away like the Mountnmonkeys.
