Detroit Party Marching Band


Detroit Party Marching Band

The Detroit Party Marching Band is a guerrilla band based in Detroit, Michigan. The band appears at events unexpectedly.[1] The band has played at events such as the Hamtramck Labor Day Parade, 2010 Detroit Free Press Marathon,[2] HONK!.[3] in Somerville, MA, and many bars, parties and other events throughout the Detroit area, both scheduled and unexpectedly. It was founded by Rachel Harkai and John Notarianni[4] who felt inspired by the second line bands they saw in New Orleans during Mardi Gras, and also after a trip to HONK! in late 2009. Their setlist is a mix of Balkan and Balkan-Inspired songs, and modern pop and R&B re-arranged for brass, usually by the members themselves.
