The Congo Faith Healers

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 24 th February 2018

The Congo Faith Healers are like nothing you have heard or experienced before. Combining down and dirty swamp infested gypsy blues with wild savage guitar playing, voodoo vocals, latin american drums, trumpet grooves and rockabilly swing double bass. The band provide hooks that you will be singing for days, they have one of the most intense and utterly compelling live shows around! The band have previously worked with top industry producers Chris Kimsey (Rolling Stones, the Gypsy Kings) and Grammy Award-winner Cameron Craig (Tina Turner, Robbie Williams, Amy Winehouse), and have recently released their twelve track debut album "Ju Ju Mix" which was recorded in just two days and has been blazing a trail across the land to unprecedented reviews.

"Gorgeous, original, amazing music, great and sultry vocals and brilliant entertainment!" - Edinburgh MoonWalk 2012

"Totally unique!" - Think Scotland

As diverse and unique as the band's image and members is also their gig history. The band have played the Edinburgh Moonwalk 2012 in front of 10,000 people, performed in Trafalgar Square two years running for the West End Live Festival, have played at Battersea Powerstation, the Globe Theatre in London, the Secret Garden Party and performed at the FX/HBO True Blood series Launch Party! 

They have supported and played with bands such as Razorlight, KT Tunstall (who called the band "The best band I have ever seen"), Supergrass, Mick Jones and have even been invited by Franz Ferdinand to play at one of their parties. Ronnie Wood, Bob Geldof, Roger Lloyd-Pack and Mark Lamarr are also fans of the band - Mark Lamarr featured them twice as special guests on his BBC Radio 2 Show Gods Jukebox.

The CFH have recently completed a tour of Northern Cyprus and have floored audiences in Cannes, Qatar and Dubai at a Jack Daniels sponsored event.

The CFH are that truly unique beast, a band that blend their collective influences to create something totally fresh and exhilarating. Word is being spread from packed show to packed show that the CFH are an unstoppable musical force.
