"We are a street band of brass, reeds and percussion from Providence RI.
We welcome musicians from all backgrounds and all levels of ability to join us.
We play in support of select causes and events in an attempt to draw community attention to them.
We help each other to grow in musicianship.
We play free, guerrilla style and in the streets whenever possible and try to uplift everyone within earshot.
We believe that the power of music may be be more effective and powerful than weapons, arguments or war.
We build community and share our love of music with each other and with our audiences.
We interrupt your regularly-scheduled life with spontaneous moments of raucous musical joy.
We encourage musical expression by playing with, and for, people of all levels of musical experience.
We contribute to making the experience of saving the world a bit more fun and weird.
We believe that any note is better than no note.
We celebrate the heritage and joy of marching/roving band shows and their rich, diverse history.
We hold each other to a standard of reliability regarding attendance at practices and shows.
We operate as a democracy, sharing responsibilities and decisions.
We value silliness, gratuitous antics and pure fun for its own sake as much as (if not more than) musical skill.
Range of Music:
As the history and present state of brass, drum, marching, and roving bands shows, they are part of a rich and diverse history of styles, influences, cultures, and purposes. We hope to play songs that celebrate those histories, while having a great time playing together and with our audiences.
