The Minor Mishap Marching Band
Austin’s original renegade circus brass band! Bourbon street meets Budapest.
Fun, loud and in the street! Minor Mishap Marching Band, a 35 piece unruly circus-punk-brass band: Rue Bourbon meets Budapest, was started on a wild hare by Austin musician, Datri Bean. She was inspired by a love of street music, brass bands, and spectacle, as well as a desire to create community and reinvent public spaces. Over the two years since its inception, it has grown to be a 35 member ensemble, performing all over Austin; New Orleans Mardi Gras Parades: Thoth, Druids and Muses; Art Outside, Austin; the Greensteam Festival, Austin; Honk Fest, Boston; Honk West, Seattle; and many SXSW related events. March 11th, 12th and 13th, members of Minor Mishap Marching Band will be presenting HonkTX, a festival of community street bands which will feature twenty community street bands playing free in the streets of Austin.
