Local band Ranky Tanky last week released their sophomore album Good Time, along with a music video for the title track.
The video, which you can see below, was filmed in Charleston and features several local businesses, including some with ties to the Gullah community – Dave’s Carry-Out, Knight’s Supermarket, Mr. B’s Private Club, and The Commodore. Viewers will also catch glimpses of The American Theater, Hot Mustard, and several downtown neighborhoods. In addition, some familiar local faces can be spotted throughout the video – Mayor John Tecklenburg, Charleston’s poet laureate Marcus Amaker, comedian Brian T. Shirley, and more.
Ranky Tanky says they perform the “timeless music of Gullah culture – from playful game songs to ecstatic shouts, from heartbreaking spirituals to delicate lullabies.” Their self-titled debut album reached No. 1 on on the Billboard, iTunes, and Amazon Jazz Charts.
The band consists of Quiana Parler (vocals), Kevin Hamilton (Bass), Clay Ross (Guitar), Charlton Singleton (Trumpet), and Quentin Baxter (Drums). The video for “Good Time” was produced by Mistuh Knee Bone.
