Featuring Damas de Ferro - an all-female brass band from Rio de Janiero, Brazil, New Orleans second line band New Creations, and many more TBA!


Our previous three cathartic HONK! NYC shows at Monty Hall are the stuff of legend. A slew of bombastic brass and street bands from around the country and around the world have made merry mayhem, honking and squonking and cavorting their way to our hearts, on stage and in the audience. This year, you can be there too! And if you need proof of the fun and craziness guaranteed at a HONK NYC! show at Monty Hall, check out the video of last year’s spectacle:

So don't miss out, join us for HONK! NYC at WFMU’s Monty Hall, an over-the-top international activist brass band performance spectacle. Marching band music like you've never imagined, plus off-kilter dance routines, twisted baton-twirling, absurdistacrobatics, hysterical histrionics, and high school marching formations from an alternate universe!

HONK NYC! - http://www.honknyc.com/
- is the after-party to the
Boston-area's unrivaled annual HONK! Festival of Activist Street Bands

http://www.honkfest.org/ . HONK NYC! is a multi-day spectacle of
street music and pageantry across the NYC metro area.

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.
