South African-bred family band Kongos continues to gain fans around the globe with their boot-stomping sound and high-energy live performances. The band's four brothers possess an undeniable chemistry on stage, and their knowledge of both their craft and each other really shine as they tear through tracks like "Come With Me Now" and "I'm Only Joking". With their music receiving heavy radio airplay in the US and Canada, the boys of Kongos are ready and raring for another rollicking round of shows on tour.
Dylan, Daniel, Jesse, and Johnny Kongos were raised splitting time between London and South Africa. Their earliest exposure to music came via their singer-songwriter father, who encouraged them to toy around with the instruments in his home studio. After relocating to their mother's hometown of Phoenix, AZ, they formed their namesake band and began to hone their sound. They released their self-titled debut album in 2007, supporting the record with extensive touring that earned them a strong regional following. They released their sophomore album Lunatic in their native South Africa in 2011, topping several charts in that country with the single "I'm Only Joking". The album was released in the US in 2013 and fared equally well, earning them their first stateside No. 1 with the anthemic hit "Come With Me Now". A phenomenally talented act with big things on the horizon, Kongos continues to floor ticket buyers around the country with their must-see performances on tour.
