We are the Broome County Celtic Kazoos. We are a group of over 130 kazoo players who gather each "holy" season to march in the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Binghamton, N.Y.
The Band has won may acheivements at parades throughout the years, including "First Place for Group Originality", "First Place for Best in Music", "First Place for Most Enthusiastic", "First Place for Best in Crowd Participation" and "First Place for Best in Crowd Enthusiasm" etc. Make sure to check out our photo page to see photos of all out awards!!
In addition to the Binghamton parade each year, we have also marched in St. Patrick's Day Parades in Syracuse, NY, Utica, NY and Scranton, PA as well as the famous St. Patrick's Day Parade in Savannah, GA. We also have marched in many other smaller parades in our area including the Deposit Lumberjack Parade in Deposit, NY.
All are welcome to join us. Check out the Practice Schedule page for more information. We hope to see you!
