Iconic band Uncle Monkey have become a Wellington institution and have recently celebrated 25-years together! The band has been performing that entire time continuously with the same members. This is testament to their popularity among the public and their longevity in the music industry. During this time, Uncle Monkey has released two albums of original music to critical acclaim. Their career has seen them perform numerous festivals, corporate events and weddings, delivering a party atmosphere with their brand of popular covers wherever they go.
This has seen Uncle Monkey perform nationwide and internationally as far away as the UK, USA and Australia. They have shared the stage with some of this country’s biggest names including Dave Dobbyn, Jordan Luck, Zed, Frankie Stevens and many others. They continue to travel around New Zealand for shows, and most recently were guests in the Chatham Islands for their 2020 Community Festival in March. Front man Carl Webley also offers a solo acoustic service allowing the band to take care of your entire event, start to finish.

We booked Carl for our wedding in Jan as my parents are a fan of his band Uncle Monkey. He also offered us acoustic music during the canapes time, which was perfect. Carl sang some of the announcements during the song he was playing, which got people’s attention quickly and got some laughs as well. He helped to bring such a fun and relaxed atmosphere to the day. Then later at the reception the band were incredible! They even let me get up on the drums and my sisters sing for a surprise performance. The song lists cover so many years and genres and, being music lovers, it was perfect for our day. Thank you so much Carl and Uncle Monkey. I highly recommend the band and Carl for anyone looking to hire a band in Wellington “ ‘

“We are so pleased we chose to have a live band and that the band was Uncle Monkey. We have had such a lot of super positive feedback from wedding guests about you guys too. As you know, there was always a crowd on the dance paddock, all ages and all smiles. The playlist had something for everyone and your interaction with the crowd was especially enjoyable. Vic and Jordan were rapt with the first dance and feeling very happy they could offer their guests such an entertaining and fun filled party to complete what was a fabulous day.”
