Tank Dilemma has delighted crowds from the Basement to the Port Fairy Folk Fest with their piano driven brand of funk, soul, blues and rock. Half Warrnambool, half Melbourne, the act is led by writer/frontman keyboardist Richard Tankard, current keys man for Geoff Achison's Souldiggers and Broderick Smith. His other credits include Albert Lee, Richard Clapton & Shane Howard and the act has released 3 albums, Inner Soul, Alright Already and Having Said That, Let Me Say This. Joining Richard in trio mode at Club Altona will be drummer Brenton Smith and bassist Ruben Shannon, currently on a national tour with Archie Roach.
"Tankard is no tinkler on the keys - take equal parts Jimmy Smith organ, Stevie Wonder funk keyboard and driving piano, shake liberally, pour some brass over a rock solid rhythm section and drink in the results." - ABC online
