Tank Gyal is a Vancouver-born-and-raised DJ and event promoter. She is the creator and resident of Vancouver's longest-running reggae dancehall weekly Ting, which has been rocking every Thursday for over 7 years (now at Waldorf Tiki Room). She is also the First Lady of Vancouver's notorious Lighta! Sound. Tank Gyal has played shows in places far and wide including Jamaica, Mexico, Switzerland, Miami, Las Vegas, Seattle, Bellingham, Whistler, Victoria, and all over the Lower Mainland and has performed at festivals such as Shambhala, Bass Coast Project, Diversity, Conscious Culture Fest, Car Free Day, and 420 and Cannabis Day Celebrations at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Tank Gyal has opened for many toppa top artists including Beenie Man, Chronixx, Konshens, Mavado, Gyptian, Baby Cham, Spragga Benz, Mr. Vegas, Tanya Stephens, Wayne Wonder, Luciano, Macka Diamond, Richie Spice, Khago, Collie Buddz, Gappy Ranks, Ranking Joe, Bugle, Serani, Gondwana, Rebelution and more. Her DJ sets are a rapid fire massacre of the hottest Jamaican music from the past, present and future mixed with a heavy dose of custom dubplates, unique sound effects and siren blasts from her giant black Uzi megaphone. Tank Gyal always attracts the ladies to the dancefloor but can rock the turntables as hard as any man. Make sure to stretch well because daggering will be unavoidable.
