I'm a Soul Monkey Minion!!!

I'm a Soul Monkey Minion...the Chazman is a Soul Monkey Minion...the hubbikins is a Soul Monkey Minion and YOU can be a Minion too!!!! What's a Soul Monkey ya ask? WELL...let me tell ya. It's one of the best bands in our area..HANDS DOWN!!! Their music far reaches any others that I have heard in a long time. This group of rockin and blues souls is not afraid to do songs that most others won't do....others just think they are to hard to sing. (waaahh..big babies) NOT Soul Monkey though....from classic rock like Elton John and the Beatles to classic blues like Eric Clapton and B.B.King....and the transition from one to the other is flawless. There is no way that you can just sit and listen...OHHH will catch yourself swaying and matter who might be watching. (yes..even shy me does it) This group is so versatile that on top of doing classic rock and blues....they even will throw in a few modern POP songs, dance music and even a great country ballad or two. Not to mention that two of the guys write music themselves and of course they throw a few of their originals in the mix. These guys should be out touring...for real...I'm not kidding...they are that AWESOME!!! Although I do think they could be making a trip around the world, I'm happy that they stay close to home. They perform at local events here in Foley and the surrounding areas....have a few places they can be found at most weekends when no events are happening and they even play weddings and birthday parties. Just a group of 4 L.A. (that stands for Lower Alabama..hehe) guys that stand out due to their love of music, excellent vocals and the rockin good time they give to all their minions. Give them a listen HERE.

We are very excited that Soul Monkey is going to be playing at one of our local events here in Foley next Saturday, the 19th, at Heritage Park. The Third annual "BBQ and Blues" cook off event. This fantastic, FUN event features some of the local "cooking" talent getting together and showing off their stuff. Yep....part of the name..."BBQ".. good old fashion Southern cooked up just right BBQ. I know there are going to be some finger licking good times. I'm so glad that I'm not a judge...I so wouldn't be able to pick just one. Of course the "Blues" part comes in with the awesome music that is going to be happening during this all day event. Soul Monkey will be hitting the stage around noon and playing until 2. There will be a few other good local performers and I will be listening and enjoying them too but you will only find me swaying and a dancin when I become a Soul Minion. Ohhh's going to be an awesome day my friends. If close by...come and sit a spell....lick those fingers and sway to the music. It starts at 10am and ends at 6pm...Heritage Park located right on the corner of Hwy 59 and 98. Main road through Foley....most know goes directly into Gulf Shores and the could make a weekend of it...what could be better than fun, food, music and the beach. The cost is $10 for adults and that means you get to eat as much as you want....honest....really...all you want......for just ten bucks. Where else can ya eat good BBQ all you want for that? Kiddos 10 and under get to eat free...yeppers...I said FREE!!! They soooo don't know the Chazman and BBQ...they gonna be in big trouble...LOL!!!  There will be children activities...chances to win some awesome prizes....a silent auction. I have donated one of my ooaks for the auction. Mimzie and Whikit!! I thought a mermaid would be appropriate since we live so close to the beach. The money will all go back in to the community so I'm very honored and proud that I was asked to participate. Now see....there's another reason to come on down. Bid on Mimzie!!!
I have been looking forward to this event for months and I do mean months. I just love my Soul Monkey...yes..they are mine....all mine...mine mine mine!!!! OK maybe not mine but I do love them. ^_^  OK....snap out of it Regi...get back on track. I have been working on a pin set that I can wear. Noooo...I didn't do a monkey dancing around...although I thought about it. I decided that since it was really all about the BBQ that I would do some of my piggie clay beads. If you are one of my sweet friends that comes to visit often (and I thank you very much from the bottom of my heart) then you know of which piggies I am speaking of. I finally completed the set here it is.
I will be wearing my piggie pin with my piggie earrings and have my hair pulled back with my matching hair barrette and licking my fingers due to all the wonderful piggie ummm I mean BBQ that I will be enjoying. So I shouldn't be to hard to find....LOL!!  So bring a blanket, some chairs. a good appetite and come for a rockin good time and become a minion too.

Until next time..........HUGS, Regi


  1. Blimey, you weren't kidding, they ARE good!

  2. Love when a friend introduces me to something fabulous! Thank you!

  3. So Regi, do you like the Soul Monkeys? LOL!! You are an enthusiastic fan! And that event sounds so fun. I am going to go listen to this :)) Happy weekend - xox Pam

  4. Wow, I'd come but just a tiny bit too far LOL! Hope you enjoy ;)

  5. Oh Regi, you're a hoot! I can tell you're smiling from ear to ear as each day nears! I wish you the best and eat some yummies for me too. I'm a HUGE BBQ fan. It gets me fat too. (only a smidgen) The nose grew again!

    Have a blast if you can. Wishing you the best!

  6. She is gorgeous too your sweet Mimsie. I can only imagine what the auction will bring. Wow! I love your work so much more than food...ok I better stop while I'm ahead!

  7. Wow so much to comment on! First off, the Piggie set turned out fabulously- just as much fun as I'd imagined!
    Secondly Mimzie is WoNDeRfuL! I love how she floating above the dolphin, and you already know how I feel about the eyes......anyone who wins her will be thrilled with their new treasure!
    Next, one of the requirements of being a good southern girl or GRIT is fostering a love of BBQ and Blues, so you had me at the start:D I just wish I could join you 'cause it sounds like SO much fun! We have a BBQ and Blues Fest here in Decatur, but it's like $10 to get in and THEN you pay for your food and it's DEFINITELY not all you can eat....the music's pretty good tho'!
    I guess I've written enough of a book by now!

  8. Okay, so all of this looks amazing and I hope the event goes SO well!!!
