KONG is a five-piece funky jam band from Boston, Massachusetts consisting of bass, guitar, percussion, keys and drums.
Rooted in the hard funk grooves of the last three decades, their sound is armed with electro thunderfunk, tight percussive rhythms and a diverse touch of world beat.
Not afraid to melt your face with high-energy jams (think Band Of Gypsies meets Santana on steroids), they break it down with a touch of M.J., Maze or Roy Ayers. KONG strives to move the crowd and push the limits! They are committed to bringing 110% to every show.
KONG brings true THUNDERFUNK which is genetically engineered to plaster the walls of your ears with visual groove product placement. These five musicians from diverse backgrounds come together to bring back the feeling of your first head nod.
The band reached a milestone in April 2011 when they played their first festival gig at The Rock N' Roll Resort in Kerhonkson, NY. They brought so much thunderfunk that they were voted Fan Favorite-Best New Band! Kong has recently been blessed with a weekly residency at the legendary Bull McCabes in Somerville ,Ma.
