Hungry March Band - On The Waterfront

If you never heard of the Hungry March Band, you are in for a treat. If you have, why haven't you told me? The Hungry March Band is a 25 piece community marching band out of Brooklyn. They are truly awesome! Now, I know everybody is going to claim that their alma mater has the best marching band, but the Hungry March Band is unique. They blend a variety of styles into their sound such as: Eastern European Gypsy Brass Band, Bollywood Film Scores, New Orleans 2nd line, Jamaican Ska, Jazz, Punk, Klezmer, Afro-Cuban, Middle Eastern, and the list goes on and on. In fact, a band like this could probably only have come into existence in Brooklyn, the original melting pot for immigrants from all over the world. One of my favorites is "Disco Bhangra." Other standout tracks include "Short Fat Pig" and "Underground." Click here to listen to their whole album, On The Waterfront.
