Tank And The Bangas On What It Takes To Become An ‘Overnight Success’

Tank and The Bangas are a fan-favorite band across the globe. With funk-infused jazz and pop vibes, the fun-loving, high-energy performers leave their all on stage every time. Musicians Joshua Johnson, Norman Spence and Albert Allenback join frontwoman Tarriona “Tank” Ball, to infuse their entire beings into the songs and transform them into full experiences at concerts. Their flight to international acclaim seems like that of an overnight success, but even if it looks like the group won NPR’s Tiny Desk and took off from there, that’s not exactly the whole story.

In honor of Black Music Month, Blavity sat down with Ball and Allenback to talk about their new album, things they learned during the pandemic shutdowns and why it’s problematic to assume success is achieved with ease.
