“King Louie and the Swinging Monkeys” is the name of this band: Ashley Davis, Senior on vocals, Alexander Coco, Junior on guitar, Jaime Monteil, Sophomore plays drums, Chris Lambeth, Senior, is bassist, Dylan Leach, Sophomore, plays keyboard and Graham Coco, Freshman, conducts percussion. Friends first, then a band, Jaime, Dylan and Alex conjured the idea of creating a band randomly in the middle of a conversation. Since their friend Chris Lambeth is “the bass master,” according to Jaime Monteil, he also joined the group. The funky name arrived at their doorstep when the gang was watching “The Jungle Book”. They hope to cover the song “I Wanna Be Like You” performed by King Louie himself which is featured in the movie. However, this remix will have a dub beat swing to it. All in all, this message goes for every song that King Louie and the Swinging Monkeys play: peace and happiness. Keep your fingers crossed because their big goal for next summer is a tour.
