Bio

Their story begins in the 1970's, where two of them meet in the Frankfurt Synagogue boy's choir and became best friends forever. Three decades later, joined by a third member, they become the deliciously irreverent trio they are today, dubbed The Jewish Monkeys.

Armed with politically-incorrect lyrics and a Marx Brothers sense of nonsense, the Jewish Monkeys' pandemonium experience is one of a kind. Their music keeps pushing the envelope and their lyrics cover a range of topics: the middle east conflict, the environment, over-eating, world-poverty, terrorism and child-molestation among others. All of these, they tackle with equal erratic blitheness, sparing no-one. While they all live in Israel their backgrounds are European.

Gael Zaidner grew up in Belgium and both Dr. Boiko and Jossi Reich hail from an unlikely stock of German Jews (German Jews? Incredibly!). Since their inception, they've been groomed by their musical father, musical-producer Ran Bagno, who turned their chaotic ideas into professional music productions. Among others they worked and performed together with Tel-Aviv guitar-bands Yahalomin (Diamonds) and BoomPam, today they are surrounded by a raving rock band, where you find a trombonist and an accordionist next to drummer, bassist and guitarist.

Like all Jewish conspirators, the Jewish monkeys too are well educated, well connected and filthy rich. Jossi Reich, the founding monkey and financier is an entrepreneur and co-owner of the German label Essay-Recordings. The veterinarian Ronni Boiko is well-known among the cats and dogs of his neighborhood and Gael Zaidner is a fabulous shrink.

Despite being the movers and shakers they are, members of The Jewish Monkeys dabbled in music before and after. These forays include Jossi Reich's music-clips in Yiddish and German under his artist name Joe Fleisch with various artists. Ronni Boiko created the soundtrack for German TV's NDR "Die Kinder von Theresienstadt' (The children of Theresienstadt).

In the late Nineties, with careers and families under way, Jossi Reich and Ronni Boiko met Gael Zaidner and were impressed by his uncanny comical genius. His theatrical slant inspired them to create their first track and video-clip: a cover version of Harry Belafonte`s Banana-Boat-song. Their advice to the world: Make peace in the Middle East with The Jewish Monkeys, Harry Belafonte's Banana-Boat and a bit of Hava Nagila!
