DOCKS ACADEMY PRESENTS:


KOG & The Zongo Brigade .


+ support by Kings & Bears (Lincolnshire)


Doors open 7pm
Support starts 8pm


 


Turn Up The Music and buckle up for this one!!! 


Under the guidance of the outrageously talented Ghanaian force of nature Kweku Sackey, aka K.O.G, and the whirlwind of energy that is Jamaican rapper Franz Von, the 8-piece Zongo Brigade deliver infectious high-energy rap, operative vocals, hard hitting patois, unmistakable African rhythms, electric brass and thunderous percussion. With influences from afrobeat, soul, funk, rock and reggae they have fast gained recognition in the UK, Ghana and around Europe with their totally original sound that leaves every crowd dripping with sweat and begging for more.


KOG’s signature mix of songs, raps, operatic vocal effects and stage antics are backed up by hard-hitting patois raps from Jamaican Franz Von Song, and a dedicated band of serious musical badmen.  The band have played huge stages including Glastonbury West Holts, Reading and Leeds Festival, and clubs and venues across Europe.

Accessibility:


We are sorry to report that, due to Covid19's significant impact on our business, we are still not yet wheelchair accessible. Currently, the only way of entering the Docks Academy is via a flight of stairs. However, our mid term plans include a wheelchair accessible lift coming up to a new external balcony which will have level access to the venue, funding allowing. Please rest assured wheelchair access remains our highest priority and as soon as we have reopened with our non socially distanced programme we will look at this in earnest. We are grateful for your forbearance.
