Duffy's Tavern says
Monkeysoop is a musical group of ‘experimetal’ pioneers, mixing up styles, time signatures, and extraordinary guitar melodies to put you on an auditory and emotional roller coaster that is the band’s ‘experimetal’ music. "Experimetal Mock-Rockers," Monkeysoop . . . balances earnestness, speed and all-out technical ability with playfulness and soaring imagination,” says Jim Beal, Jr., from the San Antonio Express News. Mixed with a playful array of comedic vocally-charged punk-rock madness, Monkeysoop's musical blend keeps audiences energized and wanting to hear more.

Monkeysoop has been going strong with recording and live performances since 2003. Monkeysoop has toured the continental United States and Canada and performed seven dates in Europe in the spring of 2016.

Monkeysoop has had the honor of guest appearances by drummer extraordinaire Terry Bozzio and guitar slinger Michael Angelo Batio on their 2012 release, EXPERIMETAL II.

Monkeysoop received Grammy consideration in 2005 for "Best Rock Performance.”

The band was honored as the "BEST NEW INTERNATIONAL BAND" for the "MYSPACE HALL OF FAME”, Class of 2010.

Monkeysoop’s music is featured in the television series "The Drive TV".

The band releases its ninth CD, YEAR OF THE MONKEY, on June 15, 2016, and embarks on a 13-date US/Canada tour on June 16th.
