King Kong Company
Waterford, County Waterford
King Kong Company have “21st century swagger” (Irish Times) are “festival legends in the making” (Irish Examiner) and are the best live act in Ireland today (Pure M Awards).
That ‘festival legends in the making’ comment comes from a series of mind melting performances at Irish & UK festivals in the last year. There were 10,000 revellers screaming their hearts and lungs out at King Kong Company’s Electric Picnic mid-afternoon rave. There was the gig that set Townlands ablaze (literally) and what about that 2am slot at Body & Soul? If you can remember that, were you really there? Not to mention the appearances at Glastobury, Boomtown and Amsterdam Dance Event in 2017!
This is the band that have their own Buckfast infused beer named ‘Commotion Lotion’, who played a private gig at Aaras An Uachtarain and asked the President of Ireland if he was ‘getting anything off that’, who took their award winning show on a 15 date tour of the UK and Ireland and where, on the final date at The Academy, having had the sold out audience eating out of their hands, there was a marriage proposal. You never know what will happen at a King Kong Company gig.
King Kong Company in 2018; new show, new tracks, same crazy.
