Ninja Monkey are a pop/rock band from the Hawkes’ Bay in New Zealand.
Since forming in 2009, Ninja Monkey has been on a mission to write, record and perform the most memorable tunes possible; the kind of songs that have you getting pretty close to getting the words right half way through the first time you hear the song.
Ninja Monkey has become one of the “go to” support bands for artists visiting the Hawkes Bay. They have been hand-picked to open for such bands as Tiki Tane, I Am Giant, Dane Rumble, Shotgun Alley, Ivy Lies, Mile High, Decortica, House Of Mountain, Hera, Sleeping Dogs, Engine Three Seven and Faster Pussycat Kill! Kill! Yip, we’ve been very busy! Along with all the great support opportunities have been many headlining gigs in Napier, Hastings, Auckland, Wellington and Palmerston North.
Career highlights include a slot at the International Tattoo & Arts Festival in Hamilton in February 2012, playing at the City Showcase in July 2012 and reaching the national final of the Battle Of The Bands in 2013 (after winning the Hawkes’ Bay regional finals).
