The Monkees were originally a group of actors that made a parody of The Beatles, but became an independent and successful pop/rock band during the shooting process.

When in 1966, the NBC started telecasting a situational comedy about four lads dreaming of fame, no one could predict that the guys could really sing on stage. Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith, Peter Tork, and Davy Jones were all musicians and  after consistent rehearsals in the recording studio they sang together for real. Their debut album entitled “The Monkees” was released in 1966 and made the singing quartet more popular than the acting one. The album was #1 on Billboard charts for 13 weeks and stayed on the charts for a total of 78 weeks!

Starting that moment, The Monkees were concentrating on their music career and produced another eight albums in the next four years.  From 1966 till 1970, the band was performing in its first incarnation, making the four years the most fruitful part of The Monkees’ history. Apart from releasing the albums one after the other, they were successfully touring in the US, Europe and Asia. 1970, though, was the last year the legendary band performed together. Due to the band members’ wishes to develop their careers separately, they disbanded just after the release of their ninth album, “Changes”.

The Monkees however did not vanish after 1970. They have reunited and toured extensively over the next 45 years. The world welcomed two more albums of theirs in 1987 and 1996, but was forced to say good-bye to Davy Jones, who passed away in 2012.

Despite all the controversy and turmoil The Monkeys have gone through, the band is still on stage and is ready to continue entertaining with their lively music! Contact Contraband to have this great band at your event!
