NPR Music's "Tiny Desk" Winner's Tank and The Bangas at ID10T Festival on Saturday, June 24th at 3:40pm
NPR Music's "Tiny Desk" Winner's Tank and The Bangas will be performing at ID10T Festival on Saturday, June 24th at 3:40pm on the Shoreline Amphitheatre Music Stage.
Originating in New Orleans, Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relate them to the city that birthed them but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances range from being "one of the most energetic shows you'll ever see to "a gospel tent in Mississippi." Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you'll find the Bangas to provoke a musical reference of rhythmic soul and spoken word among other genres such as rock, gospel, funk and folk.
Of their music, Bob Boilen at NPR Music proclaims, "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," while Complex calls them, "...a truly unique artist."
