A rising act in the world of Alternative Rock, The Kongos have formed a distinct style with influences ranging from all different grounds. The band is composed of four brothers including Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos. Having endured life shaping steps moving from London to South Africa, and now to Arizona, the band is cultured from various different roots. With a collective South African inspired sound and a funky accordion beat, their songs have been rising to top the charts in the past weeks. They recently sat down with The Vera Project at Sasquatch! Music Festival 2014 to talk about their experiences on tour and at the fest.

THE BEST WEEK OF THE SUMMER IS BACK!

The Vera Project is excited to announce the 12th annual drinking fundraiser A Drink for the Kids! Happening just in time to gear up for the best week of the summer, when the sun shines the longest and the cocktails are the most refreshing, we invite Seattle’s 21+ music and arts loving community to support programs for all ages at the Vera Project just by drinking at their favorite neighborhood bars!

Vera is excited to welcome Tito’s Vodka and local distillery 3 Howls as A Drink for the Kids’ liquor sponsors, and welcomes back Eugene, Oregon’s Ninkasi Brewery as beer sponsor. During A Drink for the Kids, 100% of the proceeds raised from the purchase of any Tito’s, 3 Howls cocktails, or Ninkasi beer directly benefit The Vera Project. Each night will feature raffles with fun prizes from partners like Seattle Theatre Group, Sub Pop, the Show Box, Bon Voyage Vintage, and more, with the Linda’s Tavern night also featuring a small silent auction of sought after items.
