    Getting it on with Big Bank Hank

    Red Betty invite you to spend Friday night getting it on with DJ Big Bank Hank, aka Henry Banks. Come down and check out the DJ who recently rocked White Night in Melbourne and Ballarat. This fella even got the Messenger to bust a move.


    Big Bank Hank is a DJ quite unlike any other. His eclectic taste and deep musical knowledge has allowed him to rock dance floors across the globe. His style while rooted in all things funk embraces a myriad of genres ensuring his sets always suit any given dance floor.

    Having begun DJing in 2006 Banks has garnered a reputation for diversity and a willingness to play marathon sets that always leave people wanting more. He never fails to create or source highly original music to include in his dynamic and vibrant sets.

    Coming from Melbourne, Australia but based in Trondheim, Norway. Big Bank Hank has held residencies all over the world. From beach parties in the tropical paradise of Seychelles to boat parties cruising the canals of Amsterdam. To whatever bar, club, house party, after party, shower party or party party that´ll have him. He is also head of production company Mad Love Entertainment. The future is now, and it looks bright!
