Tank and The Bangas and Big Freedia Prepare to Take the Stage by Storm on Country Wide Tour
High energy funk-soul group Tank and the Bangas and the pioneer of bounce rap Big Freedia join forces for a joint tour across America, touching down in Philadelphia, Boston, Seattle, Portland, New York, and Toronto. The two acts are also joined by New Orleans natives and jazz six piece ensemble Naughty Professor.
Tank and the Bangas found worldwide fame and notoriety with their hit single 'Quick,' which was released last year and won NPR's Tiny Desk contest. Earlier this year, the group released 'Smoke.Netflix.Chill' which gained wide critical acclaim, and they plan to soon release their next studio album.
In 2003, musician Big Freedia released the studio album Queen Diva, but began gaining fame in mainstream music in 2009 and the following year with the release of her 2010 album Big Freedia Hitz Vol, alongside exuberant music videos. In 2011 the Best of the Beat Awards named Big Freedia the Best Emerging Artist and Best Hip-Hop/Rap Artist and she was nominated for the 2011 22nd GLAAD Media Awards.
