TriBattery PopsBand website
At HONK! in 2008.
The residents of Tribeca and Battery Park City have combined to form the first downtown NYC volunteer community band in a century. The TriBattery Pops are a community-based bass brand that is made up of all kinds of folks: children, NYC residents, friends, merchants and politicians. The talented group, now infamous in local gatherings, play regularly at Washington Market Park, Downtown Little League opening days, as well as Fourth of July celebrations and Battery Park City’s Block party. Leader Tom Goodkind is no stranger to the indie rock music scene either: he’s known for founding Irving Plaza and the Peppermint Lounge hosting the likes of the Ramones, Talking Heads and B-52s.
