Tankus the Henge are six sharped dressed and bedraggled gentlemen hailing from some of the more eccentric parts of London Town. Their music draws from a multitudinous array of influences including rock, ragtime, reggae, blues, funk, disco, gypsy punk and Django.
With a big beat and a carnival air it will get you out of your seat and dancing the tango.
The current line-up was completed in 2011 and since then the band has been either on the road or holed up in a recording studio working on their eponymously titled debut album, released in Spring 2013 on SRM Records. With wailing horns and a steaming piano in tow, Tankus the Henge have toured the far reaches of America, Europe, Albania and the Isle of Wight, bringing with them their electrical energy and fascinating tales of wonder and woe.
‘Like The Clash from New Orleans.’
New York Brass Band hail from the mean streets of York.
Starting life as a busking band their brand of contemporary New Orleans jazz attracted big crowds, this soon led to gigs across the UK at Secret Garden Party, Royal Ascot, Wembley Stadium, Cork Jazz Festival, Durham Brass Festival, Paradiso Amsterdam and Soundwave Croatia.
This is a rare hometown gig for the band but they hope to make an NYBB presents…… a regular event at Fibbers!
