The Detroit Party Marching Band is a guerrilla band based in Detroit, Michigan. The band appears at events unexpectedly. The band has played at events such as the Hamtramck Labor Day Parade, 2010 Detroit Free Press Marathon, HONK!. 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 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.
