About The Amazing Drumming Monkeys
The Amazing Drumming Monkeys is an adorable little variety show aimed at 2 – 8 year olds, and is also great entertainment for all ages. The two monkey puppets (Bongo & Congo) play African drums, lead audiences in songs & dances, and perform magic tricks and (low tech) special effects gags. The show also features beautiful positive messages, such as caring for our environment, and getting along with each other.
The Monkeys appeal to a great range of people, places, and events. The show has cute and funny monkeys for the kids, great drumming for the adults, variety segments for all ages, and a message for the world.
The monkey show is the brainchild of South Australian based percussionists, Xavier Beaubois and Troy Moore. The original idea for the monkeys came when Xavier’s daughter, Kira, laughed hysterically when Xavier used her toy monkey’s hands to play the drum. Xavier and Troy quit the bands they were in and set about developing the concept for the Amazing Drumming Monkeys and, as they say, the rest is history! Together they hope that the show will not only entertain but also positively influence current and future generations towards sustainability and peaceful coexistence.
