BABAM! – the Boston Area Brigade of Activist Musicians – is a cross-band group (and open to people not with any band) to rally for events and causes in the Boston area and beyond – sometimes to enjoy the power of a massed group, sometimes to pull together a viable group at the last minute. The repertoire is simple, horn-friendly well-known stuff in the HONK! tradition.

Joining In
Here are some of the songs we play. BABAM! doesn’t have a regular practice schedule or exact crew, so we march with the army that shows up, and bend the playlist accordingly. Don’t be shy about coming even if you don’t know the songs listed – we’re very flexible, and “chant support” is a big part of what we do as well.

To join in the fun, sign up for a free account on The Gig-O-Matic, the HONK! community’s favorite gig organizing tool.
