Tatanka & Sun-Dried Vibes
TATANKA

“Tatanka is a record that manages to pay homage to its roots, deliver a couple catchy singles, as well as define Tatanka’s s
ound as an out of the mold band that is pushing the reggae-rock genre to a new place.” -Tommy Dubs, The Pier

Tatanka encapsulates the heavy roots rumble of the Caribbean, while maintaining the pop sensibilities of the dance-oriented electronic sounds from the Britannica-American reggae scenes. These sounds are what fueled the groups newest album,'Tatanka'. Written over the span of a year and a half, Tatanka recorded their self-titled album at Imperial Sound in San Diego. Reggae rocker Ted Bowne from PASSAFIRE and roots magician The Maad T-Ray of Tribal Seeds feature on a counter-culture wake up call entitled “The Yard”. Jamaican sing-jay Triston Palmer is heard on a bouncy number labeled “Give Green". The tune pays homage to never giving up and believing in yourself. En Young of Tribal Seeds can also be heard throughout the album. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts and #4 on Billboard's reggae charts. The positive lyrics and heavy sounds garnered radio air-play all around the globe. 

Tatanka's Sounds In Technicolor EP has racked up over 20,000 downloads and has attributed to the flourishing fan base. This recognition has led to tours across the US and Canada with acts such as Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, Lee Scratch Perry, Fortunate Youth, Easy Star Allstars, Passafire, and more. In conjunction with a heavy tour schedule, Tatanka has also played a multitude of festivals including California Roots, Powell-a-Palooza, Desert Rocks, Arise, and a plethora of others. 

Formed in Denver Colorado by a few college friends, Tatanka has been recognized as "Breakout Artist of the Year" (2014) by The Pier, High Times "Unsigned Band of the Month" (September 2011), and nominated by Westword magazine for "Colorado's Reggae/Jam Band of the Year" (2015). With 2015 providing a large amount of clout, Tatanka will be releasing a remix album of their self-titled record as well as several new singles.

Tatanka's infectious live show is the bridge between the band and the fans. It unifies the crowd with a progressing, pulsing, and positive perspective. Tatanka is always looking to further instill a global vision of unity with their pounding, dynamic sounds and peaceful, harmonious message.

“We all go help them, People come together no selfish.” -Reward Them,TATANKA
