The Amazing Drumming Monkeys

Children's Entertainment, Creative Entertainment

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys show features monkeys playing drums, dancing, magic tricks and beautiful positive messages. The Amazing Drumming Monkeys have been reviewed as “Beating Hi – 5 hands down” by the Adelaide Advertiser, and “The next Wiggles” by the NT News. Famous all around Australia, be sure to catch them!

The Amazing Drumming Monkeys are the brainchild of two Adelaide-based percussionists Xavier Beaubois and Troy Moore. The original idea for the Monkeys came when Xavier's daughter, Kira laughed hysterically when Xavier used her toy monkey's hands to play the drum. Xavier and Troy quit the bands they were playing in and set about developing the concept for The Amazing Drumming Monkeys, and as they say the rest is history! Together they hope that the show will not only entertain, but positively influence the current and future generations, towards sustainability and peaceful coexistence, amongst ourselves, and the world we live on.


A 25-30 minute variety show, which features lively drumming music, songs and dances, magic tricks, low tech special FX, positive messages, and comical audience interaction between musical numbers. The show can either have the main theme of “Trees”, or “Recycling”. This show is aimed at children, however is great entertainment for all ages. Such a show would be perfect for festivals, fairs, parties and public events. We suggest having the stage set-up in one location, and performing a number of short shows throughout the day(s) of the event.


This 45 minute show is recommended for school performances for any other larger, child centered audience (e.g.: concert halls, theatres, larger festivals etc). The show incorporates all of the elements of the short show, but extends further into the environmental themes of both trees, and recycling. The extended show features a more elaborate set which is equipped with even more low tech (monkey style) special FX.
