You may remember the funky band "Java Monkey" playing to packed crowds at Fuzzy's Place on Wednesday nights (and weekends) in the old days...well, they’re back! Playing classic songs fused with Soul, R&B, Jazz, Funk, and Rock ranging from the 60s to the 2000s (i.e., Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Doobie Bros, Stevie Wonder, the Beatles, Motown, Spinners, Van Morrison…), mixed with a few original tunes.

Our original guitarist Marvin Taylor now lives in Florida, so Jody Worrell has joined team "Java Monkey".

Members of Java Monkey have played with 38 Special, Atlanta Rhythm Section, the band Atlanta, Bertie Higgins, Francine Reed...and many many more!!
