Over the last few years, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts' Junior Executive Board has worked tirelessly to establish the tradition of 'Art in Concert'. Held annually on the museum's beautiful property, this event has brought the likes of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, The Futurebirds, and many more to one of the city's most unique venues. This year's event has raised the bar yet again, as one of the hottest acts in America, Tank & The Bangas, is all set to bring its wildly unique and entertaining show to Montgomery on Friday, October 20th.
Tank and the Bangas is a New Orleans-based band that has gained popularity in the last several months after winning the NPR Tiny Desk Concert. Judges said they selected this band because of their mastery of a unique sound while maintaining a chemistry that made them a pure joy to watch. The six-person band features Montgomery native and BTW alum Albert Allenback, and to bring the experience full circle, opening for the band will be BTW's Wilbur Terrell Jazz Ensemble.
The MMFA will be bringing back the popular VIP tent sponsored by Pine Bar and Vintage Year for this year's concert. Enjoy food and drinks and meet the band under a private tent from 5:30-7:00 P.M. prior to the concert. VIP tickets are only $50. General Admission tickets are $15. Gates open at 5:30 P.M. and the music starts at 7:00 P.M.
