JANK: the embodiment of dysFunktion, of being slightly off and wholly unique.
Formed in New Orleans in 2017, Jank Setup gained their reputation packing raucous college house parties. They have since transitioned to playing sold-out gigs at established venues while still bringing that same jank energy. Their explosive live act brings together potent, yet sensitive vocals laced with tight-knit rhythmic grooves, complemented by colorful brass harmonies.

KEYS AND SYNTHESIZER
Not only is Jank Setup inspired by the classic sounds of soul, funk, jazz, and hip hop made famous by Earth, Wind, & Fire, and James Brown, but also the modern sounds by the likes of Anderson .Paak, Vulfpeck, and Tom Misch. Jank Setup continues to celebrate their idols whilst simultaneously carving a path solely their own.
Their dynamic and high-spirited performance style is matched by an equally enthusiastic and burgeoning fan base. Their sellouts of New Orleans venues and the success of their first single “In Motion” marks their progress as emerging artists.
