Tank and the Beez is an old-time roots string band from Chicago, specializing in traditional blues, folk, and jazz tunes. With strong vocal harmonies and driving acoustic rhythms, Tank and the Beez is a cross between bluegrass, dixieland, and New Orleans street jazz.
Tank and the Beez can operate as a duo, trio, or quartet depending on availability and the needs of the venue. Centered around husband and wife, Brian “Tank” (bass/harmonica/vocals) and Beth “Beez” (guitar/vocals) Blankenship, the band often features local Chicagoland musicians like Amy Malouf (washboard/piano/vocals), Tommy Malouf (mandolin/vocals), and Jeff Teppema (fiddle/vocals).
