Hungry March Band

Roaring out of Brooklyn NYC, the Hungry March Band is the greatest brass march band of all time. The HMB is based in New York City. We are a community group with a membership as diverse as our music. Put on your dancing shoes and break out the fancy threads because we’ve got the party going on - a blazing parade of flesh, blood, steel, brass, and wood. We are the music of the people!

Our musical repertoire consists of original compositions written by band members as well as scores selected from our multi-cultural world community. These songs range from New Orleans street bands, European brass traditions, Gypsy/Roma classics, wedding brass bands from India, the jazz world and the global community of NYC. The band is an ever-evolving musical experiment influenced and inspired from Brooklyn’s backyard with Latin flavor, punk rock noise, hip hop beats and music of the streets.

We have been featured in articles in the New York Times, The Village Voice, London Times, New York Post, Time Out New York, New York Press, Tokyo Times, various European publications and have countless mentions in blogs, various zines, and web articles. We have appeared on several TV networks including Lifetime, CNN, and New York One, march bys on the fly with ABC, NBC, CBS as well as appearances in several documentaries including an HMB feature Rockumentary, A Cat in a Bag.

We have performed in a huge variety of fine venues and celebrated events. The band is infamous for playing shows that are somewhere between legendary and magical. Such planned and spontaneous performances have included guerilla art events, the Staten Island Ferry, NYC subways, Brighton Beach Boardwalks and steps of the NYC Post Office. Please see our separate HMB performance list.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
