Tank and The Bangas
There is no better way to describe the music of New Orleans natives Tank and The Bangas than as an explosion of energy. The group were the 2017 winners of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk Concert, beating out competition from 6,000 others with their singular mix of rap, spoken word, neo-soul and R&B. Their unmistakable chemistry, theatricality and powerful positivity are infectious, with Tarriona ‘Tank’ Ball effortlessly switching between saccharine, childlike rhymes and fiery verses that pull no punches. Breaking the mould with their live style Tank and The Bangas have played to rave reviews around the States and their Ballinlough debut looks set to be no different.
“Their live show leaves you with an experience you truly will never forget. An eclectic and colorful tribe of true artists, working in perfect synchronization to speak truths through rhymes, rhythms, and melodies.” – Atwood Magazine
