RANKY TANKY

This Grammy Award-winning, Charleston, SC-based quintet, performs timeless music born from the Gullah culture of the southeastern Sea Islands. Their debut album was featured on NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and the TODAY show. It also soared to the #1 position on the Billboard, Amazon, and iTunes Jazz Charts. Playful game songs, ecstatic shouts, and heartbreaking spirituals can all be found on their latest release Good Time, which also offers the groups first original songs inspired by Gullah tradition.

AROUND THE BEND:

The series allows safe social distancing by providing 250 squares at 10 x 10 feet each, limiting the squares to a maximum four people per square from the same party. A six-foot aisle between squares provides ample room for social distancing while navigating the concert site, and masks are required if patrons leave their square to visit the facilities.

No food or drink will be sold at the events to avoid crowding and contact. Concert goers are permitted to bring their own food, drink, beer, wine, coolers, blankets, and chairs. An option to rent furniture will be emailed to ticket buyers, made possible by OOH Events.

The Bend, located at 3775 Azalea Dr. in North Charleston, features 20 acres of beautiful green space on the Ashley River. For all events, gates open at 5 p.m. and shows start at 7 p.m. Concert goers sharing a square are required to arrive together and can take advantage of one FREE on-site parking spot. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early to create an easier and safer ingress and seating. There are no openers, and all acts start at 7 p.m. ‘Around The Bend’ series events are planned for rain or shine.
