    That sounds like a fun band, with room for lots of freedom.
    Those are excellent comments above; Listen to Candy Dulfer's take on many tunes which are usually vocal oriented, she arranges them to suit her band and let the horn be featured.
    "Castlerock" ?, "Manteca"-Dizzy Gillespie, "The Chicken" by PeeWee Ellis, James Brown's sax man; Jaco did some real good covers of this), "Pick up the Pieces"-AWB, "Arroz con Pollo"- Ronnie Cuber really does this nice, just about any 12 bar blues tune , "Jazz-Me blues" and other trad jazz-Shiek of Araby-Basin Street Blues, St Louis Blues...etc.

    Your imagination and your fellow musicians' interests matter most, just play songs that you all like, and have fun with them. A couple of you set up the beat, and the others ride on top playing melody and improvising, mix it up a bit and trade off until it's time to end the song.

    "Entry of the Gladiators" -Fucik--Why Not?) So What, Song For My Father. There are so many possibilities......Chicago songs as instrumentals i.e. 25 or 6 to 4 ?

    With those horns you could do sax or brass quartet music rearranged slightly to use Trumpet and Trombone, if you work the issues of range out a bit. (like Trumpet/alto sax/trombone/Bari sax)

    I was watching a video of a Phish concert and they work into their jams the fanfare from "Also Sprach Zarathustra" -- more people know it as the theme from 2001: A Space Odyssey -- and I thought that it would make a great sound for a horn section in a rock band.

    The opening of "Also Sprach Zarathustra" is a deceptively simple fanfare and one that is respected by some of the most seasoned of symphonic wind instrumentalists. If Phish is using real horns instead of synthesized brass sounds my hat's off to them for sure.
    Don't forget to study the Circle of Fifths.

    They don't even do it with a horn sound. It's guitar and keyboard.

    +1 to that!

    Of course it's all a matter of taste and what you want to play. We STILL have no idea what sort of music the OP is asking about. Or maybe he/she just wants suggestions across the spectrum, which is fine, but it would help to narrow it down a bit.

    If you're going to do Tower Of Power tunes, better make one of those saxes a bari. Otherwise, it is sacrilege.

    I guess the OP really meant it when he said "that's all I've got."

    Hope some of these suggestions were helpful anyway.
