DOCKS ACADEMY PRESENTS:
K.O.G. & The Zongo Brigade
+ support: Kings & Bears (Lincolnshire)
Doors open 7pm
Support starts 8pm
Turn Up The Music and buckle up for this one!!!
Under the guidance of the outrageously talented Ghanaian force of nature Kweku Sackey, aka K.O.G, and the whirlwind of energy that is Jamaican rapper Franz Von, the 8-piece Zongo Brigade deliver infectious high-energy rap, operative vocals, hard hitting patois, unmistakable African rhythms, electric brass and thunderous percussion. With influences from afrobeat, soul, funk, rock and reggae they have fast gained recognition in the UK, Ghana and around Europe with their totally original sound that leaves every crowd dripping with sweat and begging for more.
KOG’s signature mix of songs, raps, operatic vocal effects and stage antics are backed up by hard-hitting patois raps from Jamaican Franz Von Song, and a dedicated band of serious musical badmen. The band have played huge stages including Glastonbury West Holts, Reading and Leeds Festival, and clubs and venues across Europe.

Visitors please be aware that currently the only ways of entering the Docks Academy are via one flight of stairs. We regret that we are not yet wheelchair accessible. However, our plans include a wheelchair accessible lift coming up to a new external balcony which will have level access to the venue. However, because of current structural and budgetary constraints we are unable to have this in place by our opening in March 2020. Please rest assured wheelchair access remains our highest priority. We sincerely hope that it will be in place by the end of 2020. We are grateful for your forbearance.
