Tankus The Henge

Event Type

Genre : Music - General


This is a standing gig with chairs down the sides of the Auditorium.

Tankus the Henge have built their reputation on unforgettable song writing, spectacular live performances and relentless hard work, playing hundreds of shows across Europe and building a devoted fan base along the way.

Their funk-fuelled repertoire is wildly eclectic, ranging from New Orleans inspired swing to heavy rock riffs, and since their beginnings in the ratty alleyways of London's Soho, the band has evolved into a wild groove machine.

Musically inspired by bands from the British invasion of the 60s and artists such as Tom Waits, Blur, Randy Newman and Queens of the Stone Age, and with lyrics influenced by 20th Century American Literature, specifically the Beat Generation and Gonzo journalism, Tankus the Henge defy categorisation. Their hair-raising show, like no other, has to be seen and heard to be believed. Like a psychedelic, rock n roll octopus only with four more legs.

Buy the ticket, take the ride.

That's wonderful, ..I love that. It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in. His voice is his own, ...so great. I love it. (Smiling Makes The Day Go Quicker) - Dave Davies The Kinks

Like The Clash from New Orleans - Nikolaj Torp Larsen The Specials

"....a virtual carnival of sound that's high on energy and deep on soul. With copious helpings of R&B blues, funk, disco, Django, a dose of Dexy's, a drop of Ray Davies and a pinch of Madness emerging throughout the eleven tracks it's an exciting mélange of sound." - Simon Wells (The Guardian)

Thunder and lightning ain't got nothing on this!
