TICKETS are on sale for a popular London-based band to perform in Dovercourt in the Spring.

The Harwich Festival and Essex Rocks have announced the funk-fuelled Tankus the Henge will be playing on Saturday, April 21.

Tankus the Henge will be performing at Kingsway Hall as part of their ongoing partnership to promote live music around the town.

The band, who performed as part of the Harwich Festival in 2015, will be supported by emerging act Fjokra on the night. Opening the performance will be Colchester-based band Pet Needs.

Tankus the Henge has been described as “the five wheeled, rock ‘n’ roll jalopy that comes careering round the corner on a tranquil summer’s day”.

Having played more than 1,000 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.

Also performing on the night will be Fjokra, who have gained a reputation for exhibiting uniquely bizarre and eclectic live performances, which are reflected in their insanely exhilarating videos.

Chris Berwick, of Essex Rocks, said: “This is a huge line-up. Tankus the Henge are well-known all over the country for their live performances and Fjokra are one of the brightest acts on the live music circuit at the moment.

“It’s also a great opportunity for some regional talent to share the stage with some top acts and hopefully raise their profile – this really is not to be missed.”

Michael Offord, of the Harwich Festival, said the line-up really signifies the festival’s intention to promote live music in Harwich.

He said: “I am thrilled we are able to help bring these acts to Harwich.”

Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £8 to £10 and are available on the door or via or from the Harwich Box Office in Harwich Library.
