"Rock The ToyBox IX A Toys For Tots Benefit in Conjunction with the U.S. Marines Rocked at Paladino�s"

On with the show! Next up, this band lives up to their motto of high energy rock with garnishes of hip hop and metal: The CHIMPZ! Their influences are rock, metal, punk, hip hop/R&B, metalicore, jazz/blues, funk fusion, and death metal. After a special request by Paladino's that this band be on the bill, I quickly made the call. No monkeyin' around here! The Chimpz have a unique sound that, if you haven't heard by now, well, what are you waiting for? Get up and get down with The Chimpz. And if you missed them at Toys For Tots, you'll be happy to know they'll be back for an encore very soon! - ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE Review by Debra Stocker
