The Dank: TexMex with a shot of LA blues.

The Dank is an Americana, Tex-Mex, Blues, and Rock ‘N’ Roll band based in Los Angeles, CA that performs and records in Spanish and English. Formed in 2014 by Texas-natives David Monnich (Bass, Guitar, Vocals) and Jimi Morales (Keyboards, Vocals), The Dank have grown and  performed throughout the pacific coast of the United States and Mexico, including stops at Lightning In A Bottle Festival (Bradley, CA), Desertica Festival (Mexicali, MX), the Instituto Cultural De Baja California (Tijuana, MX), Día De Muertos Festival (Mexicali, MX), Zentrro Underground (Guadalajara, MX), Fiestas Patrias (Los Angeles), and Fiesta Broadway (Los Angeles). In 2015, the band was honored by Los Angeles city council member Jose Huizar for their contributions and commitment to the culture of Los Angeles. In April 2017, The Dank produced a benefit concert in Tijuana, MX called Border Aid, which raised funds for la Casa Del Migrante. The Dank’s newest release, their self-titled debut album, was released on December 1, 2017 and is the result of David Monnich and Jimi Morales’ experiences living and traveling in the southwestern and Pacific coast regions of the United States as well as Mexico over the past five years. The songs tell stories of communal feasts, homelessness, homesickness, narcotraficantes, treachery, and Texas Rangers.
