Come play with us

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

Rehearsals are every Thursday evening from 8:00 P.M. to 10:00 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). We occasionally play a concert on a Thursday evening, so be sure to check the Schedule link before you come.
