The group continues to take their lauded live show on the

Music Hall, D.C.’s The Anthem, Detroit’s
Fillmore, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom
and more. See below for
complete tour dates.
Tank and The Bangas unanimously won NPR’s Tiny Desk contest
a riotous single they released in 2017, about 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.”
Since 2017 the band has toured non-stop, selling out venues
both stateside and abroad including festival appearances at Coachella,
Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival and more. The
band was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the “10
Artists You Need To Know,” calling them, “A secular church experience,
with freewheeling improvisational chops and positive vibes,” while lead-singer
and frontwoman Tarriona “Tank” Ball
was featured in the September, 2019 issue of Vogue and the
November, 2019 issue of Essence.
Tank and The Bangas are Ball, Norman Spence (bass), Joshua Johnson (drums) and Albert Allenback (alto saxophone, flute).
