Ranky Tanky at the Sumter Opera House

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 group has a #1 album on the Billboard, I-Tunes, and Amazon Jazz charts and has been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Ranky Tanky performs at the Sumter Opera House October 5.  Tickets $20 – $28.
