Fiasco Brass Co. is a brass band made up of UMD music students and graduates. They formed last summer to provide high-energy street performances in Canal Park. With Aaron Buchanan on trombone, Lenore Collman and Elliott Keller on saxophone, Emily Roane and Marc Hill on percussion and Karl Kubiak on sousaphone they create lively music and harmonies. The band’s style has gone beyond traditional New Orleans brass-band music to explore new influences and genres. The members also write their own original tunes. Besides entertaining on the Duluth Lakewalk during summer months, the group has also played a New Year’s Eve dance party at Endion Station, participated in local parades and performed with Big Wave Dave and the Ripples.
