HOGCHOKER

 

THE BAND

According to Time Out Shanghai, “Hogchoker are not a band, they are a sensory explosion.” The five-piece band bring jazz, ska, punk, theatre and serious rock licks, flavoured by their Asian, European and North American backgrounds, to a message of social justice and inclusivity, spiced by anarchic humour. Hogchoker smashed into the World Record books in 2018, recording and simultaneously releasing 7 versions of their debut album in 7 genres (with over 30 extra musicians), taking their high energy stage show across Asia, playing some of the most prestigious venues in China and Japan, headlining the Shanghai Beernanza Festival 2018, 2019 and 2020 (until live shows were canceled) and The Last Straw Sunburst Festival (Philippines), and collaborating with Indian producer Sandeep Madhavan on tracks for a Bollywood musical. They were only the second band from China to be invited to play the Glastonbury Festival.
