Charleston band Ranky Tanky on Sunday won a Grammy Award for Best Regional Roots Music Album for its sophomore release Good Time.
Started by College of Charleston alumnus Clay Ross, Ranky Tanky, which is a Gullah term loosely translated as “work it” or “get funky,” takes a modern approach to the traditional sounds of Gullah music.
The band features Ross on vocals and guitar, Quentin Baxter on drums, Kevin Hamilton on bass, Charlton Singleton on trumpet and vocals, and Quiana Parler on vocals. Ross, Baxter and Hamilton all majored in music at the College of Charleston and are South Carolina natives – as is Singleton.
Good Time debuted in July 2019 at No. 2 on the Billboard’s Jazz Chart. The Best Regional Roots Music Album category is for albums containing at least 51 percent playing time of new vocal or instrumental regional roots music recordings.
