Just back from the HONK! Festival in Somerville, MA, Hungry March Band writes:
A week ago we learned that our fellow travelers from across the U.S.A., Chicago's Environmental Encroachment (EE) and Seattle's Titanium Sporkestra (Sporks) were coming to NEW YORK CITY after the 6th annual HONK! Festival in Boston, MA. Realizing it'd been two years since we'd hosted these folks in NYC at BONK! -- Brooklyn's response to HONK! - we jumped on this opportunity to make a show for our friends in New York City!
Join us and local Brooklyn Balkan-inspired favorites Raya Brass Band in welcoming EE and a good handful of SPORKS to NYC on Wednesday, October 5th.

BONK! THE 2011 Brooklyn HONK! Festival is a NYC follow up to the annual HONK! Festival held in Somerville, MA. Celebrating the spirit and artistry of d.i.y. brass band culture, BONK! embraces a street-smart interpretation of global brass music by musicians across north America and Europe. Like its older sibling, HONK!, BONK! places emphasis on community building, inclusivity, and the participatory making of music and merriment.
