Barbed Wire Thong band


Barbed Wire Thong was founded by acclaimed drummer, singer and songwriter Isaac Zimbe and is managed by the talent agency called Big Mama’s Business. The members were drawn from renowned successful bands such as Afrigo, Soul Beat Africa, Blood Brothers and Misty Jazz Bands. For years now, the band’s members have thrilled audiences across the East African region, Europe and the United States of America with their tremendous energy and proven ability to entertain audiences from all walks of life.

Barbed Wire Thong draws its strength from its ability to perform different genres of music ranging from Jazz, Afro-fusion, soul, blues, pop, rock, and reggae. With a repertoire of over 100 cover songs and a few original compositions, the band plays to every client’s specification captivating audiences with their sincerity and power.

The Band boasts of a live weekly television show on Uganda’s first privately owned broadcasters, WBS TV and holds jam packed evening shows at different venues in the country like Club Amnesia, Club Silk and Club Palui. At these shows the band performs cover songs and original compositions that allow the audience listen to some familiar tunes. Sometimes individuals from the audience who might want to perform a common cover song are allowed the opportunity. It is through this kind of interaction that the band relates with its audience.

Barbed Wire Thong also performs at private/corporate functions and has been able to build an audience of uptown, average middle age working class plus local and international high profile people.
