The Hobo Banned's music has drawn influence from artists like Neutral Milk Hotel, Rainer Maria Rilke, Charles Mingus, Charles Baudelaire, Beirut, Edgar Allan Poe, The Microphones and Salvador Dali to name a few across several mediums but it is the band's ability to internalize and reinterpret it's influences as a group that makes their music so excitingly singular.
The accumulation of kinetic energy that exists in their music is passionately displayed during their uninhibited live performances. The often overcrowded stage is populated by frenetic multi-instrumentalists who illustrate a controlled chaos of layered orchestrations, complimenting the philosophical nature of Alex Muro's howled poetry. A wave of emotion and exuberance not only immerses the audience, it actively engages them in the joy of camaraderie that is the fundamental glue of The Hobo Banned.
