Ladies and gentleman, children of all ages! Introducing the MarchFourth Marching Band, in town for a limited engagement. Tonight they will be performing their amazing feats of wonder at Molly Malones, and Tuesday night they will be bringing the extravaganza to The Edison. On a mini-tour from their home town of Portland, they won't be here long. This may be your only chance to see them unless you are braving Burning Man.

MarchFourth Marching Band is a mobile big band spectacular, consisting of saxophones, trombones, trumpets and a drum/percussion corps, anchored by electric bass (battery powered)...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.

In addition to the dozen-plus musicians, the show includes stilt-walkers, flag twirlers, vaudeville dancers, clown antics, dancing beauties and acrobatics. We have seen acrobatic feats, and we have seen stilt-walkers, but this is the first time we have ever witnessed stiltwalkers perform acrobatics. This is a show not to be missed. It is a delight for the eyes and ears that will have you on the floor dancing along with the performers.
