Honk! Fest Eugene Fundraiser: Samba Ja, BeatCrunchers, Crystal Bop
March 10 • 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm• $7 - $200
Spring is springing and it is time to shake it up! Come join us at Eugene’s Instrument Library’s fantastic space for a night of rhythm driven wild dancing, deep grooves, and improvised electronic music as we start the countdown to Honk! Fest Eugene.
Honk! Fest Eugene is a free to attend festival of misfit marching bands, drum-lines, community spaces, and you! We host bands from across the country and this year we hope to help some wild brass bands from France and Moscow get out to Eugene. For this to happen we have to collect funds and we need volunteers. Suggested donation of $7 and up. So give a little, give a lot, and we’ll give it all we got! This will be our 4th year and we couldn’t be more excited about all that is coming together! This will be a perfect time to find out about how you can make Honk! Fest Eugene happen. We can’t wait to see you in our new venues and with all our great new ideas June 8th-9th. And this just in: We have an offer to match some of our funds raised so now is a great time to donate and have it doubled by the city of Eugene!
Eugene’s Instrument Library is making the music in your hands. Workshops, lessons, and accessible instruments all for you!
Samba Ja is Eugene’s favorite community Brazilian percussion ensemble. We play the music of carnival, old school hip-hop tunes, and more! We are here for you to dance!
Beat Crunchers will bring Afrobeat, Balkan, funky, David Bowie, turned inside out tunes to move your feet. Percussion, bass, keys, horns, and vocals. What else could you need?
Crystal Bop is always creating something new. Live improvised electronic music that is like a paintbox for your ears. Joining them for this performance is the dance troupe “Together”.
