The Carnival Band Heads to HONK!

The big weekend is finally here. This Friday, March 21st, The Carnival Band will be crossing the US border by train, bus, and automobile to attend the inaugural Honk Fest West in Seattle. The festival is a convocation of sixteen street bands from all over the United States, as well as hundreds of impromptu performers and supporters of community music.

The group will be performing three shows a night, both Friday and Saturday nights, and open jams will be happening all throughout the city. In addition, Carnival Band co-director Tim Sars will be hosting a jazz theory/improv workshop as part of the festival's programming. Alternative community music guru Gregg Moore will also be in attendance and conducting workshops on street performance and the power of music.
