Funk Rock n Roll
Tankus the Henge is the London based, five wheeled, funk fuelled, open top, custom paint job, rock ‘n’ roll jalopy that comes careering round the corner on a tranquil summer’s day, ruining the silence and disturbing the bats.
Having played over 1000 shows all over the world the Tankus the Henge live experience is something to behold. Combining wild showmanship and musical dexterity their sound incorporates rock, funk, blues, ska, roots and gypsy rhythms and their songs tell stories of wonder and woe.
Since the release of their first album in 2013 the band has toured extensively across Europe and also become a favourite on the festival circuit.
Tankus the Henge have played at:
Glastonbury, Benicassim, WOMAD (UK and Gran Canaria), Isle of Wight, Boomtown, Montreux Jazz Festival, Latitude, Bestival, Les Fanfarfelues, Port Eliot, Shambala, Solfest, Artisti in Piazza, Waterford Spraoi, Secret Garden Party, Fusion, Beautiful Days and many more.
With their charismatic frontman, Jaz Delorean, looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film Tankus the Henge launch into their live shows like a band possessed. They’ve left audiences breathless at headline shows including Scala, The Garage, The Borderline and The Jazz Café. They’ve featured on TV, in major advertising campaigns, toured Albania as emissaries for the British Council and made records in Nashville, Tennessee.
All the band’s singles, ‘Cakewalk’, ‘Recurring Dream’, ‘Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker’ and ‘Weather’, have been featured extensively on radio including plays on Alex Lester’s Radio 2 show as well as Steve Lamacq and Chris Hawkins’ 6 Music shows.
The Back Wood Redeemers who'll whipping up songs of dark country, twisted blues & religious fervour.
Next up at 6.30 pm are new wave and country band, the Bad Cowboys.
At 8pm we have the very great pleasure of welcoming to the stage the one and only Mr Glenn Tilbrook, who has made the Greenroom Bar his local and become a staunch supporter of Children's World. It wouldn't be the same without you, thank you Glenn.
At 9.30pm it's the turn of UK Ska legends, the Emperials, an 8 piece powerhouse who put their own take on classic ska songs, from the days of 2tone, Trojan and Studio One. A sure-fire dancehall filler who pack out the floor and leave the crowd shouting for more.
After one last chance to get your breath back and some more liquid into you, one of the biggest cult bands around, Tankus the Henge will step up and unleash their very own brand of 'Gonzo' rock and roll. With a formidable reputation for both the frequency and intensity of their live performances, Tankus are sure to wind up the night with a Moorish blend of wild showmanship and musical dexterity.
Throughout the evening the Greenroom Bar's very own DJ Random and Toby Marks will be spinning the tunes that make you breath more easily.
The Bar crew will be on hand right through the evening providing, as they always do, a fine choice of beers wines and spirits. Bring along your old greenroom cups and save on buying a new one.
Join us for a fantastic evening of entertainment
