Ranky Tanky at Coastal Carolina University

South Carolina natives Quentin Baxter, Kevin Hamilton, Charlton Singleton, and Clay Ross first came together in 1998 to form a seminal Charleston jazz quartet. Now, united by years apart and a deeper understanding of home, these accomplished artists have come together again — joined by one of the Lowcountry’s most celebrated vocalists, Quiana Parler — to form Ranky Tanky. The soulful songs of Gullah culture are brought to life by this band that blends Lowcountry traditions with large doses of jazz, gospel, funk and R&B. Ranky Tanky will perform September 16 at 4 p.m. at Coastal Carolina University’s Wheelwright Auditorium. Admission: $17. Presented by The Charles Joyner Institute at Coastal Carolina University.
