MarchFourth Marching Band will bring their breath-taking live show back to the East Coast and South East kicking off at World Café Live in Philadelphia on October 8th.

Since their inception in Portland, Oregon, in 2003, the group has become recognized as one of the nation’s busiest and best live touring acts playing close to 200 shows a year.   MarchFourth Marching Band (M4 for short) is much more than what its name might indicate.  The performance is a visual and aural feast, with around 20 performers including approximately 8 horn players, 5 drummers, bass guitar, and 5 dancers, stilt walkers and acrobats.  It fuses Vaudeville and high cinema, with a hint of Mardi Gras, anchored by groovy electric bass, rocking guitar, Eastern European Gypsy music, funk, rock and jazz.  M4 is 100% original, including the music, costumes, choreography, and merchandise.  The Atlanta Journal Constitution said “it’s the kind of spectacle that deserves the word ‘awesome.’”

M4’s song “Gospel” from their 2009 release, Rise Up, was prominently featured in the summer of 2013 Disney hit movie, “Monsters University.”  In 2011, the band released their third studio effort, Magnificent Beast, produced bySteve Berlin of Los Lobos, featuring the single “Shindig.” The ensemble recently completed a State Department-sponsored cultural exchange tour of China.  A documentary film of that tour is in the works for a spring of 2015 release.

M4 has performed at BumbershootVoodoo FestivalWakarusaTelluride Jazz FestThe Kennedy Center,EPSN’s Espy AwardsThe Hollywood Bowl and so much more, winning audiences over with the kaleidoscope of visual energy that pours from the stage.
