Tank and The Bangas don’t go anywhere quietly. They are a beacon of life. And it’s that life that you hear in their music.

The 2-time Grammy nominee and winner of NPR’s 2017 Tiny Desk Concert has become one of the most recognizable and beloved musical symbols of New Orleans—a sincere and eclectic band capable of fusing funk, R&B, soul, hip hop, rock, and spoken word.

“It’s music that can’t really be put in a box,” says singer and poet Tarriona “Tank” Ball.  “Our music is for the open-minded and open-hearted, adds bandmate Joshua Johnson.”

What started as a loose collaboration at an open-mic night in 2011 has grown into a mesmerizing musical force with a global focus that’s only picking up speed: Red Balloon, their third studio album, showcases Tank’s next-level vocals, sharp lyricism, and celebrates the beauty of Black life.

Beyond anything, Tank and the Bangas is joyful, bringing a message of hope, positivity, inclusivity, and love.

The goal of Black Voters Matter is to increase power in marginalized, predominantly Black communities. Black Voters Matter believes in working directly with communities to define agendas and implement solutions that create meaningful change. With this in mind, through voter engagement, policy advocacy, and organizational development/training, they seek to increase the capacity of community-based organizations working on a wide range of issues: from mass incarceration to gentrification, from healthcare to education, and more.
