Join the Moorhead Outdoor Bongo Band (or MOBB)

Moorhead, MN – The progressive city of Moorhead, Minisoda is seeking members for its new Moorhead Outdoor Bongo Band (MOBB).

The idea came from Moorhead resident Dr. Billy Bongo who teaches Advanced Bongo at M-State University.

Dr. Bongo says: “I envision the Bongo Band playing at all the important city functions and perhaps even travelling to other area communities which sadly may not have their own Bongo Band.”

For anyone thinking of joining Moorhead’s Outdoor Bongo Band, the initial song list will include: Rhythm Nation, Bongo In The Congo, Endless Jam, and The Beat Goes On.

Try-outs and sign-up for the MOBB will be at any and all of the upcoming Moorhead city commission meetings.

If you don’t have your own bongos or congas, you can make then out of empty oatmeal canisters or google the internet for ideas on how to make your own drums.

Besides having your own instrument to play, Bongo Band members need only be able to keep a steady beat and count to four. Dressing in colorful clothing would be a plus!
