100 Monkeys Announces Major US Tour

According to today’s press release New Castle Entertainment is formally partnering with 100 Monkeys, the band Jackson Rathbone is a part of,  for a major US Tour.  New Castle is no fly-by-night company, this is big time.  They have upcoming films with Jodi Foster and Eric Roberts. In fact 100 Monkeys band member Ben Graupner is in the upcoming New Castle project Intent co-starring Eric Roberts and Seth Peterson.

100 Monkeys absolutely caught the eye of New Castle because of the multi-talented members,  “The thing that makes the band so unique is that each member can play every instrument. In between songs, one of them yells ‘switcharoo’ and they all switch instruments. It’s amazing to see musicians that can play six or seven different instruments without missing a beat. There’s never a dull moment when they’re on stage,” said Tim Crockett of New Castle Entertainment.

According to New Castle,  the band is in talks with Saturday Night Live to be the musical guests the week of November 20th when New Moon hits theaters. They will also have a CD signing at Barnes & Noble in New York City the same week. Their concert on September 12th will be at The Rickshaw Theatre at 8pm. It’s a historic Chinese theatre that was built in the 50’s and was recently updated and re-opened as a music venue. 100 Monkeys will be picking two lucky winners from the audience for a meet & greet with the band. Tickets are only $20 and it’s an all ages show. For more information, visit 100MonkeysMusic.com.

    I don’t watch SNL, I’m not really a big fan of it, but I’ll be very happy for 100 Monkeys if they got on the show. They deserve all the attention they get, and they are really wonderful musicians. I’m just hoping they’ll come to a city in Texas, that way I’ll have a chance to see them perform Live. That would be a dream come true! 🙂

  3. I’m hoping they make it to Phoenix. We are a big enough city and I would love, love, love to see them live!

  4. I would love to see them on SNL! Love 100 Monkeys!
