L@L 013: Guerrilla Fanfare
Composed of some of the finest and rowdiest horn players and percussionists in Colorado, Guerrilla Fanfare (aka GuFa) is an 8-piece brass band that rocks hard-hitting funk, New Orleans Second Line, fiery originals, and raucous arrangements of hip-hop and pop hits. 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, booty-movin' music with energy and intensity.
Guerrilla Fanfare has performed at the Mishawaka Amphitheater, Aggie Theatre, Fox Theatre, Boulder Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Arise Music Festival (Rock the Scene 2017 winners), Five Points Jazz Festival, Upslope Getdown, FoCoMX, 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 Tenth Mountain Division, Punch Drunk Munky Funk, and other well-loved local bands. One thing is in common for all of these performances: Guerrilla Fanfare brings a fresh, funky, fun atmosphere no matter the occasion.
