King Kong Company
That story so far: King Kong Company are a band from Waterford, five blokes and a Boxhead. In 2011 they started putting out one video a month, put on the first gig in 2012 and played Indiependence on the back of a truck at 2am to 20 people. Soon after Body & Soul heard a track and booked them for an early Sunday evening at Electric Picnic where they got lucky and played to, maybe, thousands. Thinking they had now made it, they tried to get a Dublin gig and, a well-known, but won’t be named, Dublin venue turned them down saying they’d be lucky to get 100 people to it. But the Sugar Club offered them a gig, and it sold out. Then the Button Factory sold out (5 times so far), The Academy and they sold out The Olympia, but only the one time.
