The Kingshakes, a hard-hitting old-school neo rockabilly band based in the UK, has now kicked off its post-pandemic gig calendar. Van Damme cables have been at the core of every performance, most recently at the Hot Rod and Custom Car Show in Peterborough.
Formed in 2013 The Kingshakes are a three-piece ensemble, consisting of guitarist Andy Kandil, drummer Steve Clark and double bass player Dan Clark. Prior to the global COVID-19 outbreak, they played all over the world and across the UK.
Dan Clark said: “I’ve been using Van Damme cables since I was in my teens. I was trying out lots of different equipment and found that all Van Damme leads and jacks were exceptional. Ever since that day, all of the wiring inside my double bass has been Van Damme. I’ve never used anything else because the brand has never let me down – the leads have never broken, and none of the ends have come loose. It’s been a great journey. I look forward to continuing that relationship well into the future and particularly when we’re properly back on the road.”
Over the last 18 months, the team of singer-songwriters have been focusing on writing their first album which is due to be released later this year. There are a wide range of performances scheduled in the UK for the rest of 2021 and the band hopes to start touring internationally again in 2022, with gigs in Italy, Holland, Spain, Germany and the USA on the agenda.
