Tank And The Bangas feat. Special Guests Official After Party
@ Blue Note Jazz Club – Show @ 12:30AM (Doors @ 12AM)
After Party, Following SummerStage Show
Tank and The Bangas were formed in 2011 at an open mic set in New Orleans, centered at a shot gun house, Jerk Chicken Sam’iches. As the crowd cried out with love for their music, wanting to hear new original material, this group instantly knew they had something that stirred people. If you’re from New Orleans, you know all the ingredients to make a good gumbo. Your seasonings have to mix well, your roux has to be thick, and your meat has to be cut to perfection. Tank and The Bangas are what you call a great gumbo!
They have all of the qualities that relate them to their city of origin, but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances are “one of the most energetic shows you’ll ever see”, and they’ve performed everywhere from a gospel tent in Mississippi to major national venues. Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you’ll find that the Bangas draw out musical references of rhythmic soul and spoken word, among other genres such as rock, gospel, funk, and folk.
Combining the various musical techniques amongst the Bangas with the powerful play on lyrics from their lead vocalist, Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that makes them one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans.« Back to Events
