Mike Skinner and Murkage announce Birmingham ‘Tonga’ residency

Following their successful September party at the Hare & Hounds, Tonga returns, and this time with a three-date residency in 2017.

Local boy Mike Skinner and co. will be taking over the Kings Heath venue across three dates in 2017 to coincide with the venue’s 10th anniversary celebrations.

Speaking about the residency, Tonga said:

“The Tonga Balloon Gang have found a new home and it is in Kings Heath. Mike always wanted to perform at the Hare and Hounds when he was a boy but you used to have to guarantee that 50 friends were coming and the venue hire worked out quite expensive. But this time around Mike Skinner is a huge international star and with social media has more than 50 friends. Join the party.”

Tonga takes over the Hare & Hounds on the following dates:

Friday January 27th
Friday April 8th
Friday September 22nd
