Anders Osborne, Tank and the Bangas (PHOTOS)

Stephen Charles Nicholson Photographs YLC Wednesday at the Square

On Wednesday (7.17), one of the most exciting shows in the Youth Leadership Council (YLC) Wednesday at the Square 2017 programming took place in Lafayette Square. In the penultimate concert in the 12-week series, NOLA all-stars Anders Osborne and Tank and the Bangas took to the stage, performing a rollicking show that beat all hump day blues. Scroll on for photos from Stephen Charles Nicholson. 


Sweden-born, New Orleans-bred Anders Osborne is a singer-songwriter with a powerful, rock 'n roll performance style. He returned to the Lafayette Square stage with his band, offering a wild show for his many fans. Osborne is currently in the midst of a nationwide tour, performed with NMO and Bonnie Raitt.


Tank and the Bangas combine hip hop, spoken word, soul, and R&B into a rhythmic powerhouse performance. The group has become a phenomenon in the Crescent City, and are dominating the national scene on their first major tour in tandem with winning the NPR Tiny Desk contest earlier this year.
