MUNKY are a post-grunge band with a disco edge, born from a freak accident in which a shipment of Tesco lager cans collided with Chic’s tour bus.
Their music is funky and furious, drawing influences from 70's disco and funk, 90's alt-rock and modern day psychedelia to produce their distinct sound. Their live shows have created a word of mouth buzz for their energy and quality. In less than a year they have played Whelan’s Ones To Watch twice, opened for Le Galaxie, The Hot Sprockets and Raglans, been picked by Hot Press as one of the must see BIMM acts, played in Aviva Stadium and at festivals including Longitude festival, YS festival & Electric Picnic. Their first headline show sold out the main room of Whelan's and garnered high praise in reviews.
