Honk Tank

(Australia)

Honk Tank are a unique combo, playing their own blend of bluesy-jazz and low-down funk. Tim O’Brien layers his jazz inspired guitar sound over soulful funk grooves provided by Brendan Bartlett, who plays the sousaphone and drums at the same time. Joined by the occasional special guest, they create catchy, laid-back tunes to warm the souls of passers by. Largely improvised, they range from sporadic and raucous to smooth and delicate based on audience response. They are at-home playing on a street corner, and often busk to fundraise for grassroots charities. 2018 sees Honk Tank focus their sound with the recording and release of a three-movement funk epic.
