MarchFourth Marching Band s a mobile big band spectacular, consisting of saxophones, trombones, trumpets and a drum/percussion corps, anchored by electric bass (battery powered). M4 “rocks” with the best of them, entertaining the audience with an over-the-top explosion of performance and charisma. The sound is huge, melodic, and dynamic, taking audiences on a musical journey around the globe. MarchFourth writes and performs its own material, and also draws inspiration from an eclectic range of worldwide influences, such as Eastern European Gypsy Brass, Samba, Funk, Afro-Beat, Big-Band, Jazz, and Rock music, as well as television, film, circus, and Vaudeville.
The Artown blog just posted a video featuring choreography that audience members can learn to participate in alongside the band. The Band will be a part of Artown’s Opening Night extravaganza, and will hold a marching parade from Wingfield Park to the Knitting Factory for a free After-party. Sounds like fun!
