Brass Bands Going Squonky:
A Brass Band Spectacular to Celebrate
HONK! NYC's Assault on Monty Hall
this Thursday night October 15th!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

HONK! NYC, the honking squonking brass band lovefest, is coming to WFMU’s Monty Hall on Thursday, October 15th!

This is our second annual HONK! NYC WFMU Monty Hall bash -
check out last year’s video ↑ to see what you missed - and don’t miss it this time -
get your tickets now at!

The seven-day HONK! NYC Festival is a spinoff of HONK!, Boston’s fabled Columbus Day Weekend national and international street band bacchanal.

HONK! NYC events with a slew of great bands take place all around NYC all next week.

But there's only one HONK! NYC event on the Jersey side: Next Thursday's HONK! NYC extravaganza at WFMU’s Monty Hall,
43 Montgomery Street in Jersey City (just a five minute walk from the Exchange Place PATH subway station or a ten minute drive from the Holland Tunnel)!

With no less than five live bands playing - from Chicago, Paris, New Orleans and the Big Apple - you'll experience everything from exuberant warped-carnivalesque megaband mania to bombastic Balkan style brass and sizzling New Orleans second line.

And how better to get in the mood for next Thursday's live Monty Hall extravaganza than with a radio show jam-packed with brass band records from around the globe?!

Your ticket purchase supports WFMU’s live music space Monty Hall and will help us put on more great events there. So get your tickets for HONK! NYC @ WFMU’s Monty Hall, this Thursday night October 15th, at!

Hi Rob! Just back from the 10th annual Honkfest in Davis Square Cambridge and there was some serious and not so serious honkin going on. The Dead Music Capital Band --they're all zombies, you see -- did "Iron Man" and I knew my life would never be the same.

Thanks Will for the scene report from the HONK! mother ship up north... I did not know there was a Zombie band cavorting about this year!
  Sat. 10/10/15 6:32pm Will:

So it seemed, they all had funny makeup and did songs by dead bands (?) like The Grateful Dead! Also had the chops for Norleans style brass tunes a la Rebirth. I know Environmental Encroachment was there too somewhere but I missed them....humorously named Extraordinary Rendition Band from my town Pawtucket were fun too.

Hi j Levels, yes, I have a concert page people can check out at although I confess I've been busy and haven't had a chance to update much lately. I'll try to get it back in better shape in future weeks!
