Hi HONK! supporters-

As we get closer and closer to HONK! weekend details are starting to come in fast and furious! I thought you might like to hear about three of the shows we have planned for you.

Pre-HONK! musical performances (Thursday, 10/4)

Come see Chaotic Noise Marching Corps (Seattle, WA), Dirty Water Brass Band (Somerville, MA), Church Marching Band (Sonoma, CA), Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band (Somerville, MA) and Environmental Encroachment (Chicago, IL) play for free right in the heart of Union Square. 7p-11p

HONK! Kick-Off (Friday, 10/5)

Church Marching Band (Sonoma, CA), Brass Messengers (Minneapolis, MN),  Veveritse (Brooklyn, NY), Young Fellaz Brass Band (New Orleans, LA) and Pink Puffers Brass Band (Rome, Italy) play in an intimate club setting at Johnny D’s Uptown Restaurant & Music Club in Davis Square, Somerville from 7:30p-1am. This is a 21+ show, tickets are $12 at the door.

And I've saved the biggest show for last. Remember last year's boat cruise? Hmm, how to top that? Well, this year we'll be in a place that looks like this:


The final blowout concert will feature almost every band (over 30 of them!) raising sweet HONK! music up to the roof inside the spectacular Sanders Theatre in Harvard Square. Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 for students, available at the HONK! merchandise booth during the festival (cash only), and at the door (credit cards accepted). Advance tickets can be purchased at the Harvard Box Office by calling 617.496.2222 (TTY 617.495.1642), online at, or in person at the Holyoke Center: 1350 Mass. Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138 [hours: Tuesday-Sunday, 12:00-6:00 pm]

Full schedule details can be found at

Hope to see you at all of them!
