More about the HONK! Phenomenon:

Across the country and around the world, a new type of street band is
emerging. Acoustic and mobile, borrowing repertoire and inspiration
from a diverse set of folk music traditions New Orleans second line
brass bands, European Klezmer, Balkan and Romani music, Brazilian Afro Bloc and Frevo traditions, as well as the passion and spirit of Mardi Gras and Carnival these "honkers" all share a commitment to several core principles. Metaphorically speaking, they honk their horns for the same reasons motorists honk theirs: to arouse fellow travelers, to warn of danger, to celebrate milestones, and to just plain have fun.
