What is MarchFourth?
The Miners Foundry is pleased to present MarchFourth Marching Band on Friday, August 8, 2014. With a rallying cry of “Joy Now!”, MarchFourth throws itself and the audience into a swirling volcano of high-energy music and spectacle. MarchFourth brings an energy and style that takes the live concert experience to a new level of fun, turning unsuspecting concert-goers into fans for life and transforming ordinary events into joyous occasions.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show begins at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $22.00 for Advance General Admission, $26.00 General Admission at the Door, and $32.00 for Limited Reserve. Limited Reserve includes cabaret table seating. Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op.
“Part New Orleans brass ensemble, part groove-heavy rock group, and part vaudevillian circus, this group unleashes such a technicolor experience that using the word ‘concert’ to describe their performance falls flat.”

Aside from their one-of-a-kind upcycled vintage marching band uniforms, their 5-piece percussion corps, and the 7-part brass section, MarchFourth is far from a marching band in the traditional sense. Their original music is anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a rocking guitar and vocal driven journey, from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of eastern Europe, to the African jungle by way of Brazil, echoing the deepest grooves of American funk, rock, and jazz. MarchFourth’s influences are all over the map, but fans of Sgt Pepper, Duke Ellington, Gogol Bordello, Ozomatli, and Cirque Due Soleil would feel at home in the audience.
MarchFourth inspires dancing… when the audience can tear its eyes from the kaleidoscope of visual energy (and maybe even a crowd-surfing stilter) pouring from the stage. MarchFourth provides the opportunity to come together in joyous union with a band whose mission is to seize the moment, bring communities together, and leave everyone feeling as if the world is a better place. Joy Now!
