Hungry March Band is a downtown New York City institution. Established in 1997, the band has roots in improvisation, noise, punk, and jazz (free and otherwise). Through the early aughts, the band explored global brass traditions, rave dance parties, and sideshow performance art. As they mutated and attracted new talent, H.M.B. focused more and more on original composition. With all these styles in the mix, H.M.B. is a punk band at heart — manic and mad in their interpretation of sound and life in New York City. They switch gears from the charm of a children’s show to a twisted trip on acid at the drop of a hat.
