It takes a lot of party to color the world! With fresh and innovative concepts the Colored Monkeys flourish stages and events. The Monkeys are committed to give talented artist a stage & the audience a smile on their face. Check out where the monkeys go bananas!


Monkeys like to play. That’s why we created a Monkeyjam @ Vogeleiland deventer. Once a month all monkey music friends are invited to jam with us. Only one rule: No existing songs allowed. Check the Monkeyjam page to keep up to date!


Colored Monkeys is about collaborating with like minded spirits. Together with the lovely people of Roots Creation we started the reggae movement “BAMBAMBIDDYBONGBONG”. Hosting stages @ festivals or throwing big parties @ venues with international reggae acts. If you want a funky reggae party, you got to have BAMBAMBIDDYBONGBONG!

Year of the Monkeyjam

To celebrate the world’s getting more color by the day and the anniversary of Colored Monkeys, once a year the monkeys throw a big thank you! The year of the Monkeyjam is a giant jamsession where we give a serious stage to all our monkeyfriends and we invite great artist to get involved. Monkeymadnes from the highest tree and a lot of bananas! Year of the Monkeyjam is once a year in february and is hosted by Het Burgerweeshuis (Deventer)


All monkeys know it’s better to work together! That’s why Colored Monkeys support local acts in their concepts, management, bookings & monkeybuisiness. Check out the bands Colored Monkeys is managing @ the moment.


Like a monkey needs his banana every now and then, an artist or band needs a studio! Colored Monkeys is working hard to realize their own studio complex & culture platform in Deventer. This will be a warm and colorful home for all monkey friends and talented musicians & bands around who are in need of a studio with great quality, atmosphere and bananas!
