Kong Foo The Band

From the early days of this brand new band to the latest shows they have been on fire! Based on the southern sound of hot fun 'n sexy grooves, these guys sure know how to move!

It all started with three musicians in their early forties. They've seen alot, heard alot and played alot, "Been there, done that", so to speak. But even then there was this unsatiated hunger. They wanted more. More of the most sexy grooves mixed with sweat, more of good old fashioned Rock sprinkled with some Soul.

Their sound kept growing and growing, and now it has evolved into something new. It evolved into a mix of funky pop and southern grooves with a spicy flavour.
The raw "voice of the band" is full of emotion and pain as they often tell a melancholic story, some of them true to daily life.
The riffs of the guitar are soulful, but are also capable of screaming with a very open "Fender" sound.
The Hammond and Rhodes sounds are very vintage but funky as hell, they truly fill up the gap between the rhythm section and the lead guitar.
The Bass and Drums are tight and groovy, with alot of slap bass guitar and ghost notes on the drums.

This quartet is ready to conquer. With their melodic songs they can play from the smallest of bars to the biggest festival stages. Acoustic or full blown electric. With a very tasty stage performance and a charming outfit, this band is about to happen.
This sound is "Electrified", this is Kong Foo! Pleased to meet you..
