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.
