HONK NYC! in NJ!
Five fabulous brass and street bands storm WFMU's Monty Hall!

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments




This past Thursday Transpacific Sound Paradise and the HONK NYC! festival teamed up to bring a brass
and street band performance spectacle to WFMU's Monty Hall.
The video to prove it is right up there !



Watch the video or listen to the audio archive and relive all the action: Exhilarating performances by Environmental Encroachment (Chicago - pictured above at last year’s HONK NYC! in NJ! at Monty Hall) + Les Vilains Chicots (France - pictured below) + Batala NYC (NY) + Raya Brass Band (NY) + New Creations Brass Band (New Orleans).



HONK NYC! is the after-party to the Boston-area's unrivaled annual HONK! Festival of Activist Street Bands, usually held during the early October three-day holiday weekend. HONK NYC! is a week-long spectacle of street music and pageantry across NYC that follows immediately after HONK!

More about the HONK! Phenomenon:

Across the country and around the world, a new type of street band is emerging. Acoustic and mobile, borrowing repertoire and inspiration from a diverse set of folk music traditions New Orleans second line brass bands, European Klezmer, Balkan and Romani music, Brazilian Afro Bloc and Frevo traditions, as well as the passion and spirit of Mardi Gras and Carnival these "honkers" all share a commitment to several core principles. Metaphorically speaking, they honk their horns for the same reasons motorists honk theirs: to arouse fellow travelers, to warn of danger, to celebrate milestones, and to just plain have fun.

Massive thanks Sara Valentine, mastermind and head honcho of HONK NYC! And to our masterful tech crew and house volunteers including Ruth Hayduk, Vincent Clappsy, Gil Shuster, Serge Zbrizher, Mario Santana, Danny Rosenhoust and Dave Satkowski, Michael Durek, Kristina Necovska, Charles McGovern and Tony Bonczkowski!
