Save the Brass Monkey

Without financial help to cover the hydro bills, the Brass Monkey has to close its doors. If you are a local musician or patron of the Ottawa music scene, you know how important this venue is to live music in the city.
So let's do something really good for Christmas. Help the Brass Monkey cover its bills during this difficult time.  Without our support, the monkey and other local music venues are at significant risk of permanent closure - which means we are also at significant risk of a future without great venues to play and enjoy live music..
All proceeds go to Skotti Ruffo, owner and operator of the Brass Monkey.  
The show must go on. Thanks for your support.
