Acclaimed NOLA based band Tank and The Bangas will be performing at the Museum of Contemporary Art on Friday, August 24th. Please let me know if you'd be interested in advanced coverage and/or like to attend their show.
Of their music, The New York Times says, "In New Orleans, music is forged in live performance, savoring the immediate effect on a club crowd and sprawling beyond the confines of radio-ready pop. Tank and the Bangas string together grooves from funk, hip-hop, rock and gospel; serious storytelling, self-empowerment exhortations and dance instructions share the band’s exuberant stream of consciousness" while Rolling Stone furthers, "The group have been a well-kept secret for years, but the word is out."
The band unanimously won NPR’s Tiny Desk contest with “Quick,” a riotous single they released in 2017, which Bob Boilen proclaimed, “This band combines R&B with hip-hop’s poetry and rollercoaster storytelling, with a flair and alchemy that could only come from New Orleans.” There’s more new music to come as the group works on the follow-up to their debut album, Think Tank.
