Come Play With Us!

The Original Hobo Band is always seeking musicians to play in community events such as parades, concerts, dedications and strolls. All brass, woodwind and percussion players are welcome. NO auditions.

Rehearsals are every Thursday evening from 7:30 P.M. to 9:30 P.M. in our own rehearsal hall at 690 Lambs Road in Mantua Township, NJ, right next to Carolina Blue Restaurant (formerly J.G. Cook's).

New musicians are always welcome to sit in at our rehearsals, and after becoming familiar with our repertoire, are welcome to play at our parades/concerts. We occasionally play a concert on a Thursday evening, so be sure to check the Gigs link before you come.
