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 Pigs Nose Inn is a traditional English pub in East Prawle, Kingsbridge that overlooks the village green. The village is surrounded fields with breathtaking views and fabulous hidden beaches with beautiful coastal walks with rare wildlife. You could also take a walk to East Portlemouth where you can catch the ferry over to Salcombe for the shops, cafés, and restaurants.
We are proud winners of CAMRA local award with a selection of local and popular ales poured directly from casks behind the bar. Serving tantalising tasty ales from South Hams Brewery, Otter Brewery and during the holidays we have a guest ale.
The pub dates back more than 200 years, during which in its history had been a Victorian hotel and a smugglers inn used to 'store the booty' from the various shipwrecks around the coast then being changed slightly to a petrol station when cars started appearing.
The Webber family have owned the pub for more than 17 years and have tried to maintain the old fashioned values to keep the aesthetic.
Please note. We are closed between 3pm and 6pm in the Winter.
