"A 10-piece funk band, are you kidding me? Channeling Parliament-Funkadelic, Kool and the Gang and other strains of 1970s funk, disco and soul, this is a party on wheels with soul diva Airy in the driver’s seat. Taipei bars know how dependable the group is when it comes to packing the house, and its reputation continues to grow."
- David Frazier, Taipei Times
"Monkey Pilot" refers to the space monkey as well as the spirit of "pioneer" and "the vision to change the world."
Coming from five different musical backgrounds ranging from Hard Rock, Alternative, Funk, Blues, Reggae and even Metal, Monkey Pilot was form in 2006. Everyone’s favorite music style is not quite similar; however, Rock n Roll is the only genre to represent Monkey Pilot. It is also the very same factor of everyone’s diverse music backgrounds that contribute and enrich their music. Authentic and avant-garde, bold and sophisticated, persist and humorous, daring and no compromising…, all in all one could easily trace all sorts of contradictions and conflicts in their music. All of these elements are the perfect mojo as well as bonds for them as a band.
Is there still a need to introduce Marcus ?? Maybe if you just arrived in Taiwan you have an excuse. after this gig, you don't.
