“Quick” by Tank & The Bangas
BTR Live Studio | ep548 | Sep 27, 2016
Tank & The Bangas is a soul/hip-hop/rock band blasting forth from New Orleans and overflowing with spirit and energy. Led by poet/vocalist Tarriona “Tank” Ball and rounded out by a tight band of musicians and backing vocalists, The Bangas is a huge force to reckon with. Bringing a bit of a musical hodgepodge to the table, their style jumps from genre to genre, pulling in the fury of a gospel tent and the creativity of a poetry slam, you’ll be pulled in immediately. The whole band crammed into the live room at Serious Business Music in DUMBO to rock this one for us.

The Big Bang Theory: Live at Gasa Gasa Is available now.
