cropped-before-2014-honk-parade.jpgWelcome to the JPHB website! The Jamaica Plain Honk Band marches about, centering on Dunster Rd, sowing chaos wherever possible. There’s more information on Facebook, and lots of photos! We welcome new members of all skill levels and all instruments. Please contact us on Facebook, or leave a reply here. We’re also interested in playing at your parade, festival, market, gatherings, birthday party!

Mailing Lists

We have two main ways of staying in touch with each other- we have a mailing discussion list that you can subscribe to here:

Also, we use an awesome tool called the Gig-O-Matic to alert each other of practices and gigs and so people can signal red or green if they’re able to make it:

Open Practices

During the warm weather months, we practice/perform outside the Stony Brook MBTA station.  During cold-weather months (start date TBD), we rehearse indoors Mondays from 7-9PM at Spontaneous Celebrations (45 Danforth St, Jamaica Plain).

All are welcome-  don’t be shy!   Here are our latest cheat sheets (with chords) and lyric sheets, and you can find scores elsewhere on our website.  Come join us!
