Event Details

Grammy-nominated in 2020 as “Best New Artist,” New Orleans-based Tank and The Bangas are quickly gaining wide acclaim with an incredibly uncategorical soulful mixture of R&B, hip-hop and spoken-word that’s fused into an atomically combustible energetic live performance. Led by the incomparable Tarriona “Tank” Ball, Tank and The Bangas is joined by Chicago’s “Ferrari of orchestras” to newly unleash their music as a massive orchestral concert experience.

About Tank and the Bangas
Grammy-nominated in 2020 as “Best New Artist,” New Orleans-based Tank and The Bangas are quickly gaining wide acclaim with an incredibly uncategorical soulful mixture of R&B, hip-hop and spoken-word that’s fused into an atomically combustible energetic live performance. Members of Tank and the Bangas met at a New Orleans open mic show called Liberation Lounge at now closed Blackstar Cafe and Books in the Algiers neighborhood of New Orleans. They debuted as a band in 2011. In 2017, out of more than 6,000 acts entered in NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest, the judges came to a unanimous decision in choosing the Tank and the Bangas for the top honor. Led by the infectiously positive Tarriona “Tank” Ball, the genre-defying group blends clever spoken wordplay with laidback grooves and beautiful melodies to create a progressive sound that defies a single categorization.
