Children’s Museum Hosts Mini-Tonk Party

To ramp up for the big Pittonkatonk Party happening in Oakland, Children’s Museum will be holding a Mini-Tonk Party by playing outdoor games, painting faces, and parading around outside with some of the featured bands: 

  • 11:00 am: Big Blitz, a Pittsburgh based band that was born from the sounds of dance, rock, and jazz improvisation.
  • 11:45 am: B-Thunder, a female drums corps based in Toledo, OH.
  • 12:30 pm: The Detroit Party Marching Band, an ever-evolving collective of 25 + Detroit area musicians devoted to frenetic revelry, driving jams, and the power of the un-amplified horn blast.

The Mini-Tonk Party will be held on Saturday, May 5, from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm, in partnership with Pittonkatonk, a free, outdoor, family-friendly community celebration of all styles of brass music, including Balkan, New Orleans Jazz, Symphonic and street/protest/punk, by local and touring musicians. This program is FREE and open to the public! This program is weather permitting.
