Monkeyfunk London
Monkeyfunk started life in 2001, at the Bedford in Balham. Housed in the Ballroom, an elegant panelled room with sprung wooden dancefloor the night attracts a totally mixed crowd of 25-35 year olds who come for its easygoing vibe, and broad range of music, incorporating funk, breaks, hip hop, bugalu - whatever we can get our hands on, and whatever moves the floor.

We’ve built up a roster of 12 special guest and rotating resident DJ’s, who range from internationally well-known DJ’s who’ve taken music around the world, to brilliant local talent with way too much music on their hands.

The residents are Hugo & Andrea, special guests have included Dean Rudland (BGP Records), Liam & Fin (Raise it Up!), DJ Decoy (Movement), Tobias Kirmayer (Tramp Records, Berlin), Daddy Vegas (Monkeyfunk China), Greg Belson (Hogwash), Sammy Sam (sugarhustle), Chuppie Love (Monkeyfunk West), & Boogaloo Jim (Mr Bongo).

We take funk by the scruff of the neck, and foist it upon a discerning, lively crowd. 4 years on and still going strong...continuing to turn the tide against the evil empire of commercial house and dreary R&B, this is a mainstay in London's vibrant clubland.

If you've got a taste for old funk, soul, breaks, hip-hop, bugalu, even dancefloor jazz and ska, then you're going to be right at home with the 400+ who head here every Friday and Saturday night.

Great atmosphere, bar prices and an entrance price that's remained fixed at 5 since we began.
