Tankus the Henge will be bring great musical agility to Lyjme Regis

Tankus the Henge will be bringing its showmanship to the Marine Theatre in May.

The group is an upbeat festival band that thrills audiences at all of Europe’s biggest shindigs, including Glastonbury, WOMAD, and Montreux Jazz Festival.

Most people remember Tankus the Henge for its wild showmanship; frontman Jaz Delorean occupies the stage with jagger-esque aplomb, leaping from on top of a smoking piano and launching into the audience like an athlete, whenever the moment takes him.

One of the band’s great strengths is its musical agility, that allows Tankus the Henge to incorporate a vast range of genres. Rock, funk, blues, ska, and gypsy music are all there, always underpinned by an infectious energy that contrasts with lyrics that tell stories of wonder and woe.

The group will be perfroming on Friday, May 4.
