South African-born, American alternative rock band KONGOS consists of four brothers: Johnny (accordion, keyboards, vocals), Jesse (drums, percussion, vocals), Daniel (guitar, vocals),and Dylan (bass guitar, lap slide guitar, vocals). They spent their childhoods between London and South Africa before they set out to compose and record in Phoenix, Arizona, where they have lived since 1996.
The band’s first album Lunatic released in 2012 included several hits from I’m Only Joking to Come with Me Now. Come with Me Now reached double platinum status in both the United States and Canada.
The KONGOS’ latest album, Egomaniac was recently released in June through Just Music. Take It From Me, the first single off Egomaniac has already hit the U.S. charts. The band will be performing several songs from the new album during their SA shows as well as select cuts from their previous release.
One Night in Cape Town is the official Cape Town leg for the Oppikoppi headliners in August each year. Now in it’s 6th year, One Night in Cape Town is a highlight on the calendar with artists such as Deftones, Yellowcard, Rival Sons, Enter Shikari, Eagles of Death Metal, Bullet for my Valentine and many more.
A limited number of tickets will be made available for each evening’s performance. With tickets for last year’s One Night in Cape Town selling out weeks before the concert date, fans are encouraged to not wait to buy their tickets for this year’s edition.
