About Psychic Monkey

The original Psychic Monkey line-up is back and ready to rock! Rockville High School Alumni John Graver and Rob Karr make up half the band with Tolland High School Alumni Eric Hoss and Jeremy Frey balancing out the other half. Eric has just returned from his latest military training with his Big Guns ready to rock steady on the drums. Were excited to have him back but even more excited to rock Rockville during Rockville's National Night Out. 

Psychic Monkey was formed in November of 2008 in the dark forests of Eastern, CT. With experienced musicians in the CT, MA and Los Angeles, CA music scenes, former members of The Blast, Fizzhead, Hat Trick, Hollywood, Emerald Jayne, Street Legal and Marriah, as well as other local bands, Psychic Monkey jams out one rocker after the other from The Black Crowes, Blink 182, Lenny Kravitz, STP, Sublime and many more from the 70's and 80's through today. While Eric was serving our great country during his military training, Rockville High Alumni Rob Pivacek of The Piranha Brothers graciously filled in on drums. Given his Rockville ties and love for the community Psychic Monkey predicts Rob will show up and rock a couple numbers for the Rockville crowd. Psychic Monkey predicts Rockville's National Night Out will be a rockin' good time!
