Widely recognized as one of rock’s most infectious and invigorating bands, KONGOS will be heading to Johannesburg for a much in demand live concert performance at the Barnyard Rivonia Theatre on Friday the 1st of May 2020.
The band is being brought to South Africa by leading independent record company Just Music in association with Mix 93.8FM and Barnyard Theatres.
Just Music has been associated with KONGOS’ success since their debut record release ‘’I’m Only Joking’’ back in in 2011. This hit single was followed by multiple top 40 hits from their second album “Lunatic”, including “Come With Me Now” which would go on to put KONGOS on the map in the United States and worldwide in 2014.
In 2016 they returned with “Egomaniac”, scoring another top ten Alternative hit with “Take It From Me” and have since had their music heard everywhere with placements by HBO, FX, CNN, NBC Sports, ESPN, NFL, The Expendables 3, Universal Studios, Dodge Ram, Samsung Galaxy, American Idol, The Originals, MTV Movie Awards, Playstation 4 and more.
Their videos have been viewed over 100 million times. They’ve hit the stage on Late Night With Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel LIVE!, The Today Show and more and received acclaim from Rolling Stone, USA Today, and many others.
2018 / 2019 has seen an explosion of creativity from the band with new albums, “1929 Part 1”, and ‘’1929 Part 2’’, a 10 part documentary series, “Bus Call”, which follows their story and gives a compelling and realistic window into life on tour.
The brothers also host a weekly podcast, “The Front Lounge”, where they discuss music, ideas and more with guests that include other musicians, artists, touring professionals and entrepreneurs.
The brothers KONGOS—Johnny, Jesse, Dylan, and Danny are eager to get back to South Africa after an absence of a number of years.
Extensive international touring and recording commitments have demanded their full attention, but they have always retained strong connections with their South African fan base, that will undoubtedly be delighted to see the band take to a local stage again with a full scale rock production.

I watched 5 KONGOS shows when they were here in 2011 / 2012. I know that they’ve been back since then, but I wouldn’t mind checking them out again. They’ve grown a lot since I last saw them live.
