Every city has its share of minor superheroes and
civic-minded troublemakers. The HMB blows through
the world on the shoulder of Chaos, veering among
ecstatic rhythms and torrential melodies,
striving for ubiquity. A band of both Main Street
and side street, we are a DIY group that supports
the community with our music. Most recently we
have played for the Kite Festival for the kids of
PS 132; ACE Benefit for the Homeless; Paris
Review Fundraiser Gala; organized the Feast of
Saint Joey; hosted a brass band from Lyon France
for two weeks; raised over $10,000 for Katrina
Victims; a benefit for Deep Dish TV; East Harlem
Little League Parade; April Fool's Day of
Primordial Chaos - 4 street bands converging in a
Fort Green Park; a play, Junta High at PS122;
Great Small Works Spaghetti Dinner; Dance Theatre
Workshop, XXX - a situation for dancing; NYC
Marathon 7th annual Tootathon; Brooklyn Arts
Exchange Awards; ABC No Rio Benefit Auction; BARC
Dog Parade; Gathering of the Tribes Gallery
Charlie Parker Event, where we were stood up by
x-President Bill Clinton and so so much more
The space we are using for this event is quite
special, it's along the Gowanus Canal and we have
both outdoor space and indoor. The indoor space
is a converted silo with music upstairs and bar
down. It is quite charming but a little rough
around the edges still as it only could be along
the once forgotten canal. We encourage your
future support of Issue Project Room as they have
some wonderful programs!
featuring George Diaz as MC.

right and he LOVES TO MAKE POEPLE LAUGH! He

Bradford Reed never fails to entertain and
inspire. This Brooklyn, NY based composer,
performer and producer fights and tames the
idiosyncrasies of the pencilina, an original
instrument of his own design and construction.
Many have enjoyed Reed's frequent street
performances and club dates.
The Brian Wilson Shock Treatment play Heavy
Fuzz. It is music that explodes like light in the
abyssmic void and smells of fog and pulsing
strobe lights. Your head will be proverbially
sent flying against the wall from the heavy bass
undertones. Think MC5 or Blue Cheer in their prime
Charangson is a NYC-based charanga orchestra
playing popular Cuban dance music. With its
infectious rhythms including mambo and cha-cha,
Charangson modernizes the melodies and
improvisational ornamentations with its front
line of violin, flute and brass.
