Composed of some of the finest and rowdiest horn players and percussionists in Colorado, Guerrilla Fanfare is an 8-piece brass band that rocks hard-hitting funk, New
Orleans second line, fiery originals, and raucous arrangements of modern pop hits. They were formed in 2015 by sousaphonist Zach Brake, trumpeter Jesse Mathews, and New Orleans saxophonist Adam St.-Amand. Influenced by various brass groups such as Rebirth Brass Band, Soul Rebels Brass Band, Youngblood Brass Band, Trombone Shorty, and Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, it is natural that Guerrilla Fanfare performs soul-pleasing music with energy and intensity.
Guerrilla Fanfare has performed at the Mishawaka Amphitheater, Aggie Theatre, Boulder Theater, Mercury Cafe, Moxi Theater, Cervantes Other Side, Five Points Jazz Festival, Upslope Getdown, Denver Derby Party and numerous other venues and festivals throughout northern Colorado. They have been invited to perform at Honk Fest West in Seattle in 2016 and 2017 and HONK!TX in 2017. The band has teamed up to play super-charged, horn-packed shows with Punch Drunk Munky Funk, Tenth Mountain Division, and other well-loved Colorado bands. One thing is in common for all of these performances: Guerrilla Fanfare brings a fresh, funky, fun atmosphere no matter the occasion.
