Tank and the Bangas’ sound is effervescent. The New Orleans outfit craft shimmering, poetic soul infused with gospel, R&B, pop and then some. Helmed by vocalist and poet Tarriona “Tank” Ball, the group won NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest back in 2017 which propelled them to worldwide renown.
Since then they’ve garnered acclaim for their energetic and remarkable live shows, as well as being nominated for Best New Artist at the 2020 Grammys. Their new album Red Balloon is out now.

While most albums try to document the recording of songs, Green Balloon chronicles the experimental vision — the underlying philosophy that is Tank and the Bangas. This stuff is serious fun!”
There is a contagious and combustible energy every time the eight-piece band The Suffers steps on the scene. The band have got everything you need and there’s no need to look further – a heaping dose of soul, a dash of reggae, a splash of jazz, a pinch of salsa, a hint of rock ‘n’ roll and a dollop of hip hop and funk – and that is just a few ingredients simmering inside their magical Gulf Coast soul.
