Originating in New Orleans,

Tank and The Bangas have all the qualities that relates them, to the city that birth them but a flair that separates them as well. Their performances range from being “One of the most energetic shows you’ll ever see” to “A gospel tent in Mississippi”. Rummaging through their sound like a thrift store hippie, you’ll find the Bangas to provoke a musical reference of Rhythmic Soul and Spoken word among other genres such as Rock, Gospel, Funk, and Folk. Combining the various musical techniques among the Bangas, coupled with the instilling play on lyrics from the lead vocalist; Tank and The Bangas have quilted a unique sound that singles them as one of the most distinctive groups to come out of New Orleans. The group has graced the cover of one of New Orleans most recognized magazines, “OffBeat” and recently won band of the year at the New Orleans Big Easy Awards. The group has opened for acts such as LiAnne LaHavas, PJ Morton, Galactic, Big Freedia, The Revivalist, and The Soul Rebels. Most recently the band was titled as the 2017 NPR Tiny Desk Contest winners.

“Sweet Crude is an extremely exciting new group with haunting and mesmerizing vocals sung in Louisiana French and English.” -PopMatters

“Whether you speak English, Cajun French, both or neither, this is genuinely enjoyable music that breaks language barriers. If you’re a fan of many-membered pop ensembles like The Polyphonic Spree or The Most Serene Republic, you may very well dig these guys too.” -Brooklyn Vegan

Louisiana bilingual pop project Sweet Crude is a young 6-piece composed of New Orleans musicians creating a sound that sets English and Louisiana’s native French dialect to decidedly non-Cajun music. The band, boasting surnames like Marceaux, Arceneaux, and Chachere, seeks to reconnect with their lineage in the context of 5-part harmonies, tribal rhythms, and pop hooks.

“We’re making the quirky, energetic compositions that we’d otherwise come up with given our indie rock influences. We’ve got five people playing drums, we’ve got everybody singing, shouting, and dancing. We’re just singing a lot of the time in Louisiana French. We want to show that the language is still alive and kicking, and that it sounds great in any genre,” says primary lyricist Sam Craft.

Sweet Crude debuted in Spring 2013 and have hit the ground running. Music from their EP Super Vilaine can be heard in FX’s American Horror Story and the band has been receiving generous amounts of plays nationally and internationally on public, satellite and internet radio, especially in Francophone areas. Sweet Crude has tested their frenetic sound on the road, packing venues from New Orleans to New York. Additionally, the band has been making the festival circuit throughout North America. Sweet Crude’s debut LP Créatures comes out in the Spring of 2017.

See you there!
