Burlington Discover Jazz Festival: Tank and the Bangas

When: Thu., June 6, 5 p.m. 2019

From the moment Tank and the Bangas grabbed national attention by winning NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk Contest, it was clear the that New Orleans band would not be easily defined. Fronted by poet and singer Tarriona “Tank” Ball, the five-piece group weaves elements of jazz, soul, hip-hop and R&B into a sound all its own. Eclectic selections from the 2019 album Green Balloon carry from an outdoor stage during a Burlington Discover Jazz Festival performance with local openers smalltalker. Note that original headliners St. Paul & the Broken Bones have canceled their performance due to lead singer Paul Janeway’s emergency appendectomy and resulting vocal cord strain.

Price: $10.
