The Rude Mechanical Orchestra is a 30 odd piece New York City radical marching band and dance troupe. Through their music and performance, they strive to support people and communities working for social justice. They play protests, demonstrations, direct actions, picket lines, marches, benefits and events for good causes. They function as a democratic collective through consensus-based decision-making and we do not discriminate on the basis of musical ability. They formed in the spring of 2004 for the March for Women’s Lives in Washington, D.C. and solidified to support people protesting the Republican National Convention in New York. Molly performed with the RMO from 2005-2010. Link to album here.
