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.
With their charismatic frontman, Jaz Delorean, looking like a lost character from a Terry Gilliam film, Tankus the Henge launch into their live show like a band possessed, leaving audiences breathless.
Since the release of their first album in 2013 the band has toured extensively across Europe and also become veterans of the festival circuit (Glastonbury, WOMAD, Boomtown, Secret Garden Party).
“Reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in … I love it” Dave Davies, The Kinks
"....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
"A 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. High on energy, and deep on soul, Tankus the Henge launch into their live show like a band possessed." Looe Music
