MarchFourth Marching Band (M4 to its fans) is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration. Aside from their marching band themed costumes, as well as the 5-piece percussion corps and 7-part brass section, M4 is far from a "marching band" in any traditional sense (though this group of about 20 has been known to parade down Main Street before taking the stage). M4 is anchored by funky electric bass and has been evolving into a more guitar- and vocal-driven musical experience. The show will take you on a 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 then boiling it all together in cinematic fashion with high-stepping stilt-acrobatics and dazzling dancers. This genre-busting, in-your-face experience is not to be missed! What began as a Fat Tuesday party in Portland, OR on March 4th 2003, has since become one of the nation's best live touring acts. They've partnered with publicist Rock Paper Scissors to help announce their new release, Magnificent Beast (available from Burnside Distribution, out 10/25/11).

"For sheer foot-stomping, joy-making fun, you couldn't beat the MarchFourth Marching Band from Portland, OR. It was a blend of burlesque, vaudeville, horn-driven funk and marching band madness. The costumed horde, many with their faces painted and several on death-defying stilts, made for the kind of spectacle that deserves the word awesome." (Atlanta Journal Constitution)

MarchFourth Marching Band has played hundreds of shows in all kinds of venues, including music festivals (Bumbershoot, Voodoo Fest, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, High Sierra Music Festival and many more) and high-profile concert venues (Hollywood Bowl, House of Blues, Crystal Ballroom, Kennedy Center for Performing Arts), sporting events (NBA halftime shows, FIFA World Cup fanfest, and Cyclo-cross National Championships) and many corporate, civic, and private events.
