King Konga

If you are looking for a professional, entertaining and versatile percussionist to play alongside a DJ or band you have come to the right place!

I have been playing drums and percussion professionally for over 20 years. I have a wealth of experience playing live percussion with international DJs, bands and artists. I’m available to play for public or private events including weddings and parties across the UK and further afield.

I love variety and am available to play at bars and restaurants,  Salsa nights, dance fitness events,  clubs and festivals.

As you can see from the videos and pictures, I play top of the range, eye catching, silver sparkle congas and can provide my own lighting to add to the visual spectacle!

Whether it’s improvising alongside a DJ, playing with bands, or playing my own self-contained solo show, I can definitely add the wow factor to your event and deliver a slick and professional performance.

Where do I start!!! Andrew from the moment I contacted him he was fantastic, I started planning my wedding 2 years in advance his communication throughout this time was spot on, easy to talk to and filled me with confidence, I had seen some videos he put up and was impressed… and he exceeded our expectations, everyone loved him at our wedding! Truly talented guy who works incredibly hard. Fantastic show and atmosphere! Thank you so much!! Your a star!

We searched through hundreds of acts before we found Andy. He was perfect, picking up the phone and speaking to Andy sealed the deal. He delivered so much more than we had already expected. Seamlessly playing with our DJ and Headline act, wowing all of our attendees with his super skill on the congas and bringing some of the most positive upbeat energy with him on and off the drums. We couldn’t be more happy with how amazing Andy was in the build up and on the event evening! Louis

I couldn’t recommend Andy more highly. We booked Andy for our wedding, to accompany a DJ and play along with various genres of music. He just added a whole new level to the occasion which set the night off perfectly. Completely professional and accommodating from booking, through the wedding and even afterwards. A genuinely lovely guy, who always has a smile on his face and it is clear he loves his work. I would book him again in a heartbeat, for any occasion, and probably will in the future!

Simply wow!! We had Andy play at our house for my husbands birthday and he was amazing. It was a surprise for my husband and my gosh was he surprised. Andy really makes it look very easy but you soon realise how hard it is when he gave us a go :-). We will definitely be recommending Andy for future parties and events!! Thanks for making my husbands birthday one to remember!

Andrew played for our wedding in September. He was so quick in replying and super helpful. He sorted everything out with my Dj so that saved me lots of time and worry. He was prompt on the day and all the guested loved him. So highly recommend and I would definitely use again.

I thought Andy did an excellent job from start to finish. Andy was incredibly professional. As soon as I sent a booking request email he was straight back to me with confirmations, fees and hours. Nothing was too much trouble including asking him to play a little bit longer because the guests were enjoying it so much! I will definitely be using Andy again and would recommend him without hesitation.

2 weeks before our wedding I decided I wanted a bongo player to play alongside our DJ, I managed to find Andy and I am sooo pleased! He is such a lovely guy, very easy to talk to and is amazing at what he does! Our guests loved the bongos and the vibe was amazing!! Highly recommend!!

Andy played at our party and was simply amazing bringing such an energy and atmosphere it really made the evening. He took all of the pressure off us in terms of music and he was the centre piece for us to be able to dance the night away to some awesome party tunes. We also had two Spanish guitarist and Andy joined them it was simply unbelievable to hear and see how they played together never having met before it was the highlight of our evening. We just wish we could do it all again. Thanks so much for making our evening as spectacular and memorable as it was – we couldn’t have done this without Andy. Thanks again for everything!

I absolutely love working alongside Andrew – he is passionate about music and events and also allows my bride and grooms to have pictures taken of them using the kit. We have worked together at 18th through to weddings and it is always so much fun if you want live entertainment with a difference then he is the man.
