“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.”
~ 5820 Magazine

MarchFourth 2Aside 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 3MarchFourth 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!
