Hailing from Johannesburg, South Africa, the KONGOS is an alternative rock band made up of Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos—the four sons of singer/songwriter John Kongos. Rolling Stone branded them as “high-octane folk-pop”. We call them, fellow bohemians. As a cross-genre, eclectic bunch—who have been known to rock out on Bohemian Guitars themselves—these guys epitomize our definition of a true bohemian: those who live by their own rules and build their lives around a belief in love, freedom, and truth. Case in point:  Danny jammin on one our Vintage Series below.   [ezcol_1third] [caption id="attachment_693" align="alignright" width="246"]Danny - Guitarist for the KONGOS Danny - Guitarist for the KONGOS[/caption] [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third] [caption id="attachment_695" align="alignright" width="246"]Dylan - Bassist for the KONGOS Dylan - Bassist for the KONGOS[/caption] [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end] [caption id="attachment_696" align="alignright" width="246"]Johnny on the accordion Johnny on the accordion[/caption] [/ezcol_1third_end]  
  The Press Thanks to their recent rise to the spotlight in the US, we’re certain you’ve heard them—even if you don’t recognize them by name. Their hit single “Come With Me Now” has cropped up all over the media, from the 2012 film Holy Motors trailer to football promo commercials and the 2014 Pay-Per-View “Extreme Rules”, ultimately earning them acclaim from magazines like Rolling Stone. Featuring a pounding accordion, a skidding electric guitar, and aggressive vocals, the band skates across the metal genre and lands somewhere between folk and dreamscape, with a twist. The brothers claim it was their father who encouraged them to pursue careers in music. He had such a good time, and he wanted the same adventure for them. Today, the four record and perform in Phoenix, Arizona.
