2019 has been a big year for Tank and the Bangas. Spring saw the debut of their sophomore album, Green Balloon. Fall brought on a well-deserved Grammy nod. The days and seasons in between have been filled with tour dates on top of tour dates all over the world.
Over the course of their album-supporting road-trip, Tank and the Bangas have played legendary venues like the Fox Theatre in Denver and Meow Wolf in Santa Fe. The New Orleans five-piece has blown out the big stages of festivals, and repped the city internationally, from Glastonbury to Madrid.

Now, we can add a packed out headline at Tipitina’s to the list of Tank and the Bangas 2019 highlights.
