Tom Malouf - Guitar vocals

Inspired by the music of "The Beatles" and John Denver, Tom's dream career (aside from playing shortstop for the White Sox) is to make music with people. Chunky Monkey has been a terrific way to make this happen. In addition to doing shows with the band, Tom performs 3 solo shows: "Poems Prayers and Promises" (a tribute to the music of John Denver) "Stuck in the 60's For Life" (with Chunky Monkey and solo), and "Celebrate the Season" (a holiday sing a long show that often includes his family) Tom is also a teacher at St. Francis H.S in Wheaton, and the Music Director for St. Walter Church in Roselle.
Tommy Malouf - Keyboard, mandolin, guitar vocals

Tommy is the "common law" monkey, having played with them for the last seven years or so. He's played piano since he was a young lad, and has always had a soft spot with oldies music, as his father (see Tom Malouf, guitarist) has inundated him with a basic and essential love of all things classic rock. Tommy has picked up mandolin, guitar, and other random instruments along the way, and music remains one of his main passions today.
Tom Hull - Bass guitar

Tom grew up in Chicago in the 60's listening to WLS radio and has been "stuck" since. Turning to bass from keyboard more than 20 years ago, he enjoys playing music from that time especially the Motown classics. Although he would never admit it, he also enjoys jamming with the Disco sounds of the seventies. Although refered to as the "doc" by his bandmates, Tom is actually a doctor of nothing.
Bob Rubach - Drums

Jim Pauley - Guitar, vocals

Jim and Tom have been friends for more than 30 years. Their shared love of Beatles music inspired them to form an acoustic duo called "Two of Us". For years they played various venues in the area singing Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Everly Brothers, and other songs where harmony was the main ingredient. When the Two of Us stopped performing Tom continued with his one man shows and also formed the trio Chunky Monkey. Jim's interest in Irish music led him to play various pubs, parties and anywhere else people wanted Irish folk music. Jim would occasionally sit in with the Monkeys and in 2009 he joined the boys on a full time basis.
