All About The Kong

The Home of Enthusiasm!

The King Kong Club 12th season

in association with Music Maker
In EAST SIDE TAVERN 104 Leeson Street & The Grand Social ( for the big ones)

What it is:

The King Kong Club is a free weekly electrified musical games-show. It has been running for 11 8-month seasons over the past 12 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.

Mission Statement

The King Kong Club is an interactive musical extravaganza.

We aim to:

  • Expose bands to as many music fans as possible
