The WSO presents Guerrilla Fanfare Brass Band on March 24th and 25th to delight and inspire local elementary and high school classrooms with their own brand of New Orleans-style, high energy funk. Guerilla Fanfare is composed of some of the finest and rowdiest horn players and percussionists in Northern Colorado, and performs funk, New Orleans Second Line style, fiery originals, and raucous arrangements of modern pop hits.
These skilled musicians and educators will entertain and inspire students at six elementary schools with the goal of inspiring WY youth to play an instrument in their Middle School band or orchestra.
High School and College students are invited to a FREE concert and music industry Q&A at the John F. Welsh Auditorium, NCHS on Thursday, March 24th at 6:00pm. This is an unmissable opportunity for young musicians to not only experience a professional brass band live, but to also talk to a group that has made their mark professionally in the Denver music scene. All High School and College students are welcome.
The Guerrilla Fanfare Brass Band (or simply Guerrilla Fanfare or GuFa) brings the high energy funk of New Orleans-style Brass Band to the Northern Colorado area. Our mission is always to get everyone up and grooving to our relentlessly fiery and funky sound. GuFa is composed of some of the finest and rowdiest horn players and percussionists in Northern Colorado, and performs hard-hitting funk, New Orleans Second Line style, fiery originals, and raucous arrangements of modern pop hits.
Guerrilla Fanfare has performed extensively at venues, private and public events, and festivals such as the ARISE Music Festival and New West Fest in Colorado. They have been invited to perform at Honk Fest West in Seattle in 2016, 2017 and 2018 and HONK!TX in 2017. In 2017, Guerrilla Fanfare won the ARISE Music Festival “Rock the Scene” contest, effectively winning an audition to perform at the festival as well. In 2018, Guerrilla Fanfare won the Westword Music Award in the Brass Band Category. In 2019, Guerrilla Fanfare again won the same award.
