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.
He is a troubadour by definition, using his acoustic guitar as the foundation for music that takes in rock and reggae with a decidedly surf or beach vibe. However, there is much more to his sound. He is a multi-faceted performer whose music will bring a smile, whether you catch a solo performance or a full band set.
Lutes is a multi-instrumentalist, who plays drums, bass, keys and guitar, and is also heavily involved in production work, “but I really enjoy singing the most,” he said, “as it has the most emotion involved,” In addition to his solo career, he’s also been involved in several notable bands over the years, including Hawaiian group Makua Rothman Band, Riverside-based indie rockers Everything Said, Aquile, from TV’s “The Voice,” and multiple San Diego Music Awards nominees the Defamation League.
Now he’s focused on his own music, with the recently released album, After The Rain, building on his first two releases: the all acoustic, One Thousand Hours EP (2013) and a self-titled album released the following year.
A native of San Diego, Lutes grew up in the surf scene of Southern California, honing his craft on the live circuit, touring throughout the U.S. as well as Canada and Argentina. He’s at home at gigs ranging from intimate showrooms to outdoor festivals at which Lutes has shared the stage with the likes of Switchfoot, Pepper, Through The Roots, Barrington Levy, Mickey Avalon, and many more.
It’s all the culmination of a lifelong dream to have a life in music. He has been performing for over a decade. “I started my first band in seventh grade,” he said. “As kids, my friends and I would surf all day then play music into the night. I feel surfing and living in San Diego’s Ocean Beach neighborhood is a huge part of why my music sounds the way it does.”
Upcoming plans include his first tour of England this fall, opening for Falling Doves, as well as a trip to Costa Rica for songwriting inspiration. “Between the travel, the chance to create and meeting new people, music is the best choice I could have made with my life, “Lutes said. “Things have been good, but this is the year that things go to the next level.
One listen to After the Rain, and you’ll agree, Skyler Lutes is well on his way.
