“Running Wolf’s Rant – A quick pre Oppikoppi chat with Monkeys in Boots” – They’ve played memorable sets at Otterlake Easter Festival and STRAB and all over Pretoria and were recently announced for Oppikoppi 2016. I’ve seen these okes play a few times and I have to say that it’s always a jol and that I’m really looking forward to their set at this year’s festival.
“Why Ed – Oppikoppi: 7 Questions with Monkeys in Boots” – we’re asking Oppikoppi artists 7 questions about the festival and a few other random questions that you would like to know. We had a chat with Monkeys in Boots.

A Few of our Tracks
We are a 5 piece folk rock band based in Pretoria. Armed with a banjo, violin, keyboards and harmonica, we play a fresh kind of rock and roll designed to make you feel good.
We are a 5 piece folk rock band based in Pretoria. Our music is driven by two guitars, bass and drums, garnished with banjo, violin, keyboards and harmonica. The result is an instantly recognisable blend of rock and roll designed to make you feel good, have a jol with your mates and hum the melodies on the way home.
We have had the honour of sharing stages with some local heroes including François Van Coke, Piet Botha and Jackhammer, Gerald Clark and the legendary Mango Groove. Other personal highlights include performing at Strab and Oppikoppi.
Apart from playing music we are just a bunch of normal okes – we are close friends who share a love for music and we do this purely so that others might also experience the excitement and the rush that we do.
