The Ong's Hat Band

 Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA

The Ong's Hat Band is a Philadelphia based, audience friendly band that plays Acoustic Roots Music On A Tangent.


Out of the old time tradition of dance music infused with spontaneity, wit and unexpected musical turns, The Ong's Hat Band was organized by a disparate group of acoustic musicians that quickly melded their various sensibilities into an audience-friendly and accomplished ensemble.
Steeped in American Traditional Music with side trips to Jazz, Classical, Rock and Pop, the members of the band put a new face on traditional music--Acoustic Roots Music On A Tangent.
