The kind of spectacle that deserves the word awesome. -Atlanta Journal Constitution

MarchFourth Marching Band (M4 to its fans) is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration.

More about M4: Aside from their marching band themed costumes, as well as the 5-piece percussion corps and 6-part brass section, M4 is far from a “marching band” in any traditional sense (though this group of 15-20 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.


February 20th, 2015Celebrating 12 years!

It’s almost March 4, 2015, the 12th anniversary of our very first show. We’re celebrating with a week of west coast shows Feb 28-March 8, but the big day is Wed., March 4th at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland (with an all-ages family show on Tues., March 3rd benefiting the Joy Now Arts Project ). It’s always a good idea to get your tickets in advance. While the online tickets are convenient, if you want to save some dough, you can get hard tickets directly from McMenamins box offices ($1 service charge).

January 13th, 2015Winter Wonderland Tour 2015

The first tour of the year is off to a fantastic start. Sold out shows in Denver and Boulder (where the crowd’s chants throughout the night have become a theme for our tour), followed by a steamy rockin’ basement bar show in Frisco, CO (Pop. 2000) with Bonnie and the Beard (great band from Denver!) and a great fun crowd last night at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek (who helped soften the flow of the Ducks’ defeat). Super fans along the way have been cooking us dinner, bringing farm-fresh eggs to the tour bus (and other Colorado home grown garden bounty), and massaging away our aches and pains in the green room. We’re really feeling the love and we’re just getting started! These January dates are just the start of a long list of dates all over the country in 2015, so keep in touch and we’ll see you on the dance floor.
