From more than 6,000 submissions, NPR's third annual Tiny Desk contest — named for its popular in-house live music series — has named a 2017 winner. New Orleans R&B-, funk- and hip-hop-influenced powerhouse ensemble Tank and the Bangas won over judges with its performance of "Quick," which NPR's Bob Boilen says "felt so organic and on-the-spot, just like the best Tiny Desk concerts."

The band will record a Tiny Desk set at NPR's Washington D.C.'s studio before a tour with other contest performers.
