BANDINGO (Denmark)

  • PHILLY JOE'S TALLINN 10 Vabaduse väljak Tallinn, Harju maakond, 10146 Estonia (map)

Bandingo is a young energetic multiethnic funkband. The minds behind the concept are Donatas Petreikis and Jeppe Bredahl, who had a wish of bringing lost grooves and brotherly love into a shared passion: MUSIC! The two live together in Odense as they both are students of the Musicconservatory of southern Denmark. They went scouting for musicians in the western part of Denmark and found the lost hydroelectric organ player, Gunnar from Norway, who, when not riding elks, also studies at a Danish conservatory. As a great player with no genrewise boundaries, Donatas used his magical charm and brought the great guitar player, Mindaugas, into the band. The two was brought into the light of funk while a small European tour was forming. Here we are now!

The music is original with funky roots and expects nothing from the crowd other than to sit back or stand in the bar and enjoy the groovy pressure waves forced into your earhole from tasteful grooves! Bandingo is musically preaching funk with no other intention than everybody having a good time!

Inspired by artist such as; Medeski Scofield Martin & Wood, Jimmy McGriffin, King Curtis and The Meters.
