Hurdy Gurdy Monkey and…Me!

Above is Tony and Coco.  I spent a wonderful afternoon with them this past week.

And I’ll never forget it.

One of only three remaining Organ Grinder/Monkey Entertainment acts in the entire country, Tony and Coco are truly a dying art form.  It’s a shame because I’ve never seen anything like it.

Coco is wheeled out in a festive cart by Tony who’s been doing this sort of thing since 1980.  From there on out, it’s a non-stop barrage of costume changes (Little Richard, Elvis, and Sombrero-wearing Mexican outfits to name a few), parlor tricks, and sports-themed monkey athletics.

It was hilarious, entertaining, and fun.

So, if you like monkeys, or know someone who does, I highly recommend giving Tony a call.  Do it to support this artform.  Or just do it because it will turn an ordinary party into one you’ll never forget.

Here’s the link:


You won’t regret it.
