Brisbane Music: Saturday Sunsets at The Shire with Honky Kong

This video, Reflection Connections, is by Honky Kong, who are playing 3 free Saturday evening gigs at The Shire Tea House in West End.

On their MySpace site, where you can listen to two of their tracks, Honky Kong say:

We search through all sorts of music and cherry pick the best and most vibrant. We have a motto which is a lamp that guides us through the endless soloing and esoteric meanderings that fog up the world of Jazz. With all due respect we say "Cut out the overindulgence!". Originally started as a five piece Jazz/Hip Hop fusion ensemble in 1999. The current members Honky Kong have moved from The Cinematic Orchestra and DJ Shadow inspired 'theatre of the mind' music into collecting, crate digging, DJing, short films, loop digging, live scoring, and making mix CDs. Over time HK has developed a set of aspirational genres; Twisted Jazz, Afro Love, and Super Fusion.

Honky Kong's YouTube channel is here. Honky Kong will be playing at The Shire Tea House on Saturday 10th, 17th and 24th of January 2009 from 5pm to 9pm. The Shire Tea House is at 71 Russell St, West End - click here for a Google Map.
