The King Kong Club is a free weekly electrified musical games-how. It has been running for 10 seven-month seasons over the past 8 years.
We have found the best new live music in the country and rewarded the winning acts with great prizes that give them an amazing launch pad on their career path. The King Kong Club supports new music at a grassroots level and hands the power to the people to vote for their favourite act in a rollicking riot of a live event.
We will also be live streaming from the website and YOUTUBE and each member of the audiance is invited to become a film maker for FanFootageHQ
3 € pints OF CARLSBERG all night...
How we run it:
Each week we have 6-7 bands/solo artists play three songs each. It is free for bands/solo artists to enter the competition, but they must sign up via our website in advance to register or email us at email@example.com.
At the end of all the performances we do the legendary clap-off. We roll out our Clap-o-Meter – a unique eight foot replica of the Empire State Building, each floor of the building lighting up to measure audience reaction to their favorite act. Visually this makes the audience scream louder and louder, turning the venue into a frenzied cauldron of noise and excitement as fans of each group shouts on their act to greater heights. After the energetic tension of the competitive performances this is our special fun-filled way for musicians and audiences alike to let it all out in a uniquely enjoyable way.
The winning act goes through to a semi-final and it all culminates after six months of hot competition with The Grand Final, held in front of a capacity crowd with the added bonus of a panel of celebrity judges.
