Rent The Monkey!

Our performance center is a true national quality live entertainment venue able to host anything from local acts to the large international touring acts, films, or exhibitions.

Promoters/ Artists/ Managers

If you are interested in promoting an artist or renting a venue, we may be able to accommodate you through a venue rental. We can run sound for the artist, help promote, manage hospitality and technical riders, orchestrate ticketing, and generally manage the event in-house as we already do for over 150 shows per year. Our state of the art sound system and incredible acoustics will help your artist sound the best ever. Looking to have a CD release party or recital? Want to promote an artist that you really like? We reserve the right to limit venue rentals for any artist that has previously played The Flying Monkey or may be on our advanced schedule.

Fund-raisers

The Common Man Family believes in doing good both in our community and the world. The Flying Monkey is the perfect place to hold your fund-raiser. We can help secure the entertainment, run the show, help promote your cause on our website, and will manage the entire process. We can even tie you into our marketing stream to truly provide a turn-key solution to organizations that are doing good for a cause. All you need to do is sell the tickets and show up.

The Flying Monkey is a new performing arts center with state-of-the-art sound and lighting and a versatile floor layout, including Premier balcony seating, table sections with F&B service on main floor, and up-close-and personal theater seating close to the stage. Since the massive renovation and re-opening in 2010, TFM has hosted a wide variety of World Class Live music including Grammy Winners, Rock N Roll Hall of Famers, International Touring Acts, Community Events, Children’s events, a Film Program, as well as many other programs.
