Hot Chocolate Run News

The Expandable Brass Band leads the Gazette’s story on the Hot Chocolate Run:

Music, community, revelry coalesce for a serious cause at Hot Chocolate Run, Daily Hampshire Gazette, December 2.

Sunday morning, when thousands of people gather in downtown Northampton for the eighth annual Hot Chocolate Run for Safe Passage, it shouldn’t be too hard to pick out The Expandable Brass Band. They’ll be the ones toting sousaphones, trumpets, saxophones and drums…

We’ll also be making a lot of noise! See you on Main Street Sunday morning.

Blue Hill Boys and Girls Club

A blast from the past: During the 2010 edition of Honk!, the EBB teamed up with the BLO to play with the boys and girls of the Blue Hill Club.

Honk! Oct. 1 and 2

The Expandables are excited about Honk!, the festival of activist street bands. We and 26 of our bestest friends are filling the streets of Somerville and Cambridge with free music the first weekend in October.

On Saturday the first, we play two sets: 2 PM in Kenney Park and 5 PM at Davis Square Plaza. On Sunday the second, we join in a parade at noon from Davis Square down Mass Ave. to Cambridge Square. Then, at 2:15, we play a set for the Octoberfest in Winthrop Park. Confused yet? Check out the full schedule to get all the details.

Fred, Susanna, Dave, Luke and Paul.  How do you like our hats? TWO bari-saxes! Once in a while we stepped forward and played a whole tune (instead of a short fanfare).

Check out the full set.
