New single launch gig in Jakarta 01.06.24

Patrick Burgess’s new single about an ‘ojek’ driver, ‘The King of Jakarta’ will be launched with a live performance of original songs at ‘Rights Night’ at the Star Kemang restaurant and music club, Jakarta on Saturday June 1, 2024. Doors open at 6pm, music from 7pm.  All proceeds from the night and future sales of the single will be donated to the human rights programs of Asia Justice and Rights (AJAR.)

The evening will commence with Usman Hamid and the Black Stones, followed by an acoustic set from Patrick Burgess, the launch of the single ‘The King of Jakarta’ and rocking ‘til closing time with the Jakarta legends of the Jaya Blues Band.

‘The King of Jakarta’ is a celebration of the richness and diversity of the city, told through the eyes of a motorcycle taxi driver, the “emperor of the alleys” who floats through the tiny lanes, backyards and gaps in the gridlocked traffic.

The new single will be available on Bandcamp 01.06.24!
