Hi, we're the Jones family. The band began after Adam and Emily had individual performances at their elementary school talent show. Adam played the guitar and Emily played the drums. After the show, a few people came up to us and said we should start a band. So, we figured, why not? Our first song was "Carol of the Bells" played at another school talent show in December of 2014. That performance was a huge success and we fell in love with playing for other people. So, we officially started Summer Monkeys early in 2015. Every opportunity to play for people excites us and we look forward to many new opportunities to play in front of an audience.
