Monkeys in a Barrel

Monkeys in a Barrel


A high school trio on a mission to cover the wonderous works of Dispatch, Dave Matthews Band, Phish, and many others. Our music, filled with rich vocal harmonies and well thought out instrumentals is a pleasing hodgepodge of rock, acoustic, and and blues.


Joined together in March of 2006 by our 8th grade choir teacher, we've been buddies devoted to the music since. With the three of us all loving the tunes of Dispatch, Dave Matthews, Phish, Pink Floyd, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, and so many more, we easily connected as a cover group. Through we've begun writing our own songs, we still most enjoy covering the songs of artists we like best.
