Tony J Kings signature sound is hard to pin down. Cycling between the contemporary alt-roots sound, to the jiving, dirty tunes of the 40s and 50s, King oscillates between worlds, sounds and moods taking influences from the likes of Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan, Howling Wolf, Leadbelly and Robert Johnson.
With a few stories, guitar and half a drum kit, Tony J King creates a ramshackle music that has its roots in the street-corner blues and folk of the forties. Drawing on his experiences growing up in the Northern Badlands of SA and the interesting and unique jobs he has had since Tony J Kind weaves tales from his fascination with the unusual, the exotic and the downright bizarre delving into the darker and mysterious side of the flawed and the famous, the wild and the wicked.
Tony will be joining us for two sets over dinner form 7pm.
