MARCHFOURTH is a joy-inducing force of entertainment. This colorful explosion of brassy funk, rock, and jazz emanates from musicians, acrobats, stilters and more, touring the country year-round, taking audiences on a booty-shaking, soul-stirring journey that defies categorization.
The band embodies the flavor of two of America’s most eccentric and creative cities, Portland and New Orleans. Formed in Portland, the act includes 20 musicians, dancers and artisans. Most recently, 15 of those artists journeyed to New Orleans to join forces with Galactic producer and horn player Ben Ellman and engineer and producer Mikael “Count” Eldridge whose credentials include Galactic and Trombone Shorty. The resulting album MAGIC NUMBER is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger of New Orleans with the wonderful quirkiness of Portland.
“Perfectly merging the artistic spirit of Portland with the musical spectacle of New Orleans, MarchFourth put on one of the most complete shows of any band on any stage. From rocking big band jam tunes, choreography and feats of strength that need to be seen to be believed, MarchFourth entertains on every level every second they are on the stage…or off!” - Rex Thomson, LIVE FOR LIVE MUSIC
