Eight years ago at the turn of the millennium, a new record label was born out of the musical ashes of the 20th century, to boldly go forward into the 21st century and champion the increasingly diverse creative landscape of Aotearoa/New Zealand.

That label was Monkey Records and, against the odds, it has survived and prospered in an age of rapidly declining CD sales and rampant downloading. Since 2000, the label has released 23 critically acclaimed genre-defying albums and currently represents some of the most exciting live acts in the country.

On September 20th, Monkey Records is having a celebration of its eight years in existence with an extravaganza across two venues featuring eight acts from its roster.

The evening will begin with four acoustic performances in the Wine Cellar from Renee-Louise Carafice, Tim Guy, Bond Street Bridge and Káren Hunter and then progress through to the Whammy Bar where the party will really get going with the 11 piece afro soul orchestra The Hot Grits followed by the incredible Benka Boradovsky Bordello Band and DJs Balkanetic and Rasa plus special mystery guests.

No birthday party is complete without presents and so the first 100 people through the door will get a free CD.
