Hungry March Band
Hungry March Band
Hungry March Band is a downtown New York City institution.
Established in 1997, the band has roots in improvisation, noise, punk, and jazz (free and otherwise). Through the early aughts, the band explored global brass traditions, rave dance parties, and sideshow performance art. As they mutated and attracted new talent, H.M.B. focused more and more on original composition.

Running Through with the Sadness pulls from many familiar styles, referencing dub (“Swirling Spaceman”), NOLA funk (“Shimmy”), and first wave ska (“Whichawhicha”). The band also arranged a polyrhythmic tribute to the wassoulou music of the late singer/composer Coumba Sidibe with their song “Mali Mali.”
Composer/saxophonist, Tomohiko Yokoyama, described his show-stopping title track, “Running Through with the Sadness,” as “... a dilemma for an absurdity of the Human-centered world through torrid days.” The song was written to the break-neck merengue setting on a Casio keyboard.

With all these styles in the mix, H.M.B. is a punk band at heart --
manic and mad in their interpretation of sound and life in New York City. They switch gears from the charm of a children’s show to a twisted trip on acid at the drop of a hat.
