Sometimes in life you’ve gotta just blow some horns and bang on some drums, and that time is right now. Starting tonight, Honk NYC! is bringing together sixteen bands for six festive days of brass and percussion street music concerts. You’ll have twelve chances to catch the over 200 musicians hailing from New York, Moscow, Paris, Lyon, Chicago and Seattle cause a musical raucous in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Jersey City.

The festival kicks off tonight and goes until Saturday, with an outdoor concert at One Penn Plaza by the Hungry March Band, who you’ll also see at the Brokelyn High Homecoming Dance this Thursday. The Brooklyn events start Wednesday with a dance party at Littlefield featuring Frank London’s Klezmer Brass All-Stars, Raya Brass Band, and Paris’ Les Muses Tanguent. Honk NYC! is also having a Friday Night Gala at Gowanus Open Studios in Gowanus Ballroom with the Hungry March Band, Spanglish Fly, and Underground Horns. Saturday Les Muses Tanguent will be playing at Barbes Brooklyn. Some events are $10 but most are free, so there’s not much holding you back from marching and dancing and stomping to great street music.
