In 2005, three Seattle-based school teachers with a mutual passion for the Beatles, Brian Wilson, and power pop launched onto the kindie rock scene with Welcome to Monkey Town. That widely successful debut album began an ascent toward Parents’ Choice and NAPPA awards, recognition from the School Library Journal and Time Out New York, appearances at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, and 12 more recordings, including 2016’s Grammy-nominated release Novelties. Seamlessly meshing their own musical roots with kid-centric themes and catchy, melodic tunes, Recess Monkey is going to rock ELLNORA with hits like “Brick by Brick,” “Time to Make the Donuts,” “Sweaty Yeti,” “Lemonade,” and “Moon Boots,” sure to “keep the entire family bopping, bouncing, moving, and grooving” (GeekDad.com).
