The Legendary Devil Mountain Brigade

The Devil Mountain Brigade was first organized in 1971 in the small town of Danville, California.
The name Devil Mountain comes from nearby Mt. Diablo.
We are a almost semi-precision drill team that commemorate festivities with choreographed
volleys of shotgun blasts into the air, these are BLANKS, of course.

The Devil Mountain Brigade participates in several parades throughout the year and dazzles the
crowds with it’s routine. The Brigade marches in rows of three and fire shotguns under the direction
of the Brigade Commander. We are a one-of-a-kind outfit that has no peers.

In some circumstances, the sight of 20-40 armed men marching down a Main Street while
blasting shotguns might be unusual, but once the crowds see what we do,
they enjoy the noise and the antics of the Brigade during the parade. Often the children
in the audience, enthusiastically enjoy collecting the Brigade’s discarded
empty shells as souvenirs of the event.

We also have been invited to help with historical plaque dedications, town festivals
and not surprisingly, shotgun weddings. It is with great honor and respect that we
are also available for memorials and funerals, all by special request.

The Devil Mountain Brigade operates in Northern California and Nevada.
