A genre bending, never ending, furious and joyous force. On the road most of the time, defined by movement, groove and the search for adventure, Tankus the Henge have been making and breaking their own rules for a while now.
Originally based around the songwriting of singer/pianist Jaz Delorean and inspired by the hard graft ethics of an early 20th Century travelling show, Tankus the Henge will often play upwards of one hundred gigs a year in Europe. They have performed on stages across the world, from New Orleans to Albania, most places in between, including Glastonbury Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, WOMAD, and countless others. 

Their funk-fuelled repertoire is wildly eclectic, ranging from explosive rock riffs to New Orleans swing, and an insatiable love for a good singalong round the piano.

“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 … – it’s an exciting mélange of sound.” – Simon Wells (The Guardian)
