Crowds go bananas for Kiss the Funky Monkey. The band offers a unique punk-pop, funk-rock blend and the party-all-night energy of these five German guys is contagious.

In an old industrial building in 2012 they built their rehearsal rooms, studio and a creative center where they produce straight forward riffs, catchy melodies and original lyrics that you’ll be playing on repeat.

With a range of side projects like The Students, Bambi and the Boys, Like a Boss, Synthie and Roman, Lonely Boys and The Lipstix, KTFM demonstrates a constant creative flow, driving them toward new horizons. The band draws from both old and new, inspired not only by 90’s boy bands and indie bands but also from world famous rock and pop acts like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica and Carly Rae Jepsen.

In early 2013 the ‘Kiss the Funky Monkey EP’ was released. The band then released a music video of the single ‘MDMA’ in February 2014. Shortly after the video release they took off to a self organized world tour. During 4 month, they’ve played gigs across South-East-Asia, New Zealand and the USA to return back home loaded with new experiences, impressions and lessons learned.

They never take themselves too seriously, but when it comes to their music and shows, the monkeys give it their all. Even if they missed the boyband train, front man Roman brings the dream back to life, delivering a show all audiences will love. Two guitars, bass and high-class drums complete the package. Bars, clubs, open air festivals, national or international gigs, when Kiss the Funky Monkey walks in the door, the party is just getting started…

In November 2014, the Debut Album “Vive le Clöb” will be released. The Album is dedicated to the Monkeys’ beloved rehearsal room and is a compilation of songs written and produced there.
