Tank & the Bangas [CONCERT]
Friday, October 25th, 2019
8:00 PM
107 RSVPs
Coming from New Orleans, Tank & the Bangas grew up surrounded by grand musical traditions. Steeped in a rich mix of styles, the group has a rare knack for combining fiery soul, deft hip hop, deep-groove R & B and subtle jazz into one dazzling cohesive whole, evoking the scope of their hometown music while retaining a distinctive feel all its own. Powerhouse singer and poet Tarriona “Tank” Ball is a “protean storyteller” (San Francisco Chronicle) and a two-time winner of the National Slam Poetry Championship. Her vivid charisma helped the band win NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk Concert Contest by unanimous acclaim—beating out 6,000 competitors. Since then their reach has exploded: an ever-widening tour path recently took in a spot with Jimmy Fallon and concerts in 11 European cities. Rolling Stone writes, "Seeing a Tank & the Bangas show is an exercise in positivity.” And as one fan put it: “If you can’t dig this show, you should probably take up stamp collecting."
