KONGOS is a rock band of four brothers - Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Danny Kongos. Sons of multi-million-seller British singer-songwriter John Kongos, they grew up in London and South Africa, and are now based in Phoenix, AZ.
Written, produced and engineered by themselves, their debut album was released in 2007, receiving glowing reviews and earning a spot on Get Out's top 10 local albums. Later that year, they were named Best Rock Band of Phoenix by the Phoenix New Times. Their single In The Music reached No. 9 on the influential TuksFM top 40 in South Africa.
"It's rare to be in on the ground floor of something that doesn't sound like anything else you might've heard before…"
-Phoenix New Times
"KONGOS sounds like no other band, not just in the Valley, but in the whole of mainstream rock music…"
"KONGOS are bound to make it big. Their songs are radio-ready and they have a frickin' kickin' accordion!"
