Critically acclaimed New Orleans-based band Tank and The Bangas will be performing at the State Theater on June 5th.

The band unanimously won NPR's Tiny Desk contest with "Quick," a riotous single they released in 2017, 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 the win, the band has toured non-stop selling out venues both stateside and abroad including festival appearances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival and more.

Last year, the group 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." The band was extensively featured in the August print issue of Vanity Fair. The New York Times proclaimed, "Tank and the Bangas string together grooves from funk, hip-hop, rock and gospel; serious storytelling, self-empowerment exhortations and dance instructions share the band's exuberant stream of consciousness."
