Tank and The Bangas and Blackalicious will be performing LIVE in concert at The Van Buren in Phoenix on September 26! Show starts at 8 PM.
Tank and The Bangas
Originating in New Orleans, Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relates them, to the city that birth 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. Combining the various musical techniques among the Bangas, coupled with the instilling play on lyrics from the lead vocalist; Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that singles them as one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans. The group has graced the cover of one of New Orleans most recognized magazines, “OffBeat” and recently won band of the year at the New Orleans Big Easy Awards.
Emerging from the influential Bay Area indie scene of the mid-90s, Blackalicious burst onto the world stage and provided a roadmap for hundreds of underground artists to follow.
The group is known for rapper Gift of Gab’s rapid-fire delivery which is on full display in the alliterative Alphabet Aerobics.
Blackalicious has toured the globe, headlining hundreds of shows and joining the likes of Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Mary J. Blige, The Roots, Public Enemy, and their Quannum homies.
