Studio session with Tank and The Bangas

Tank and the Bangas headlines Fringe Jazz Fest

Big news from Fringe Jazz Fest. The mighty funk/hiphop/spokenword/R’n’B band from New Orleans, Tank and the Bangas will headline our festival. Coming from New Orleans, Tank and the Bangas are surrounded by plenty of grand musical traditions. And the five-piece group has a rare knack for combining various musical styles—fiery soul, deft hip-hop, deep-groove R&B and subtle jazz—into one dazzling, cohesive whole that evokes the scope of New Orleans music while retaining a distinctive feel all its own.

Fringe Jazz Fest – what a party!

It’s hard not to be excited after ten very succesfull days of Fringe Jazz Fest 2016. 5 months of preparation was worth every moment and staff, bands and audiance were amazing and made Fringe Jazz Fest 2016 the best so far. The three artists from New Orleans Michael Watson, Derrick Freeman and Meschiya Lake were great inspiration and made – with the 20 Danish bands – the beer flow from the tap, the dance floor to rock and made sure

JBL Music wish to thanks sponsors, staff, bands, audiance, Pumpehuset and Hepcat. Let’s do it again July 7-17 2017.
