Tank and the Bangas have had a wonderful run this year and rolled into the 2017 Suwannee Hulaween with a head of steam. After their win of the Tiny Desk concert challenge hosted by NPR (and judged by Trey Anastasio), the New Orleans based band have seen their stock sky-rocket! The band’s crowd during their day set on the Spirit Of The Suwannee‘s beloved Amphitheater stage was one of the most boisterous of the entire festival, and for good reason.

The Best Things We Saw At Suwanee Hulaween 2017

Simply put, Tank and the Bangas has it. Their soulful, energetic, funny, emotional, complex spirit was the perfect fit for the diverse festival lineup. The 2:00 PM set was packed, with many making it their duty to enter the festival early to catch their set specifically. The many that made it to were rewarded with a fresh and unique live music concept that really resonated with the Hulaween crowd.

Tank is a star, a true front-woman who knows how to work a crowd. The Bangas really cook and know how to bob-and-weave between the musical styles that comprise their sound. This band has the potential to be a true powerhouse, and their abilities were on full display at Suwannee Hulaween.
