MarchFourth Marching Band is a high-energy surrealist global-groove alternative big band, propelled by electric bass, diverse percussion ensemble, and brassy horn section. Visually enhanced by costumed dancing beauties, acrobatic stilt walkers, fire, and theatrics, Portland, OR-based M4 invokes dancing in the streets and beyond! 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. Discover for yourself why this band's previous Albuquerque concerts have been sell-outs!

Saturday, Pt. II

Also on Saturday night, march yourself and your loved ones over to Sunshine Theater (120 Central SW) for a recital by the ingeniously engineered, fully costumed and surreal-sounding MarchFourth Marching Band. Coming at you straight outta Portlandia—if such a thing is remotely possible—M4 has so much going on that they may blow your mind. Taking influences from the American circus tradition, rocanrol, swing and klezmer music, the band employs huge horn and drum sections, as well as electronic instrumentation, to create a massively entertaining aural effect with a psychedelic aftertaste that is as pleasing as it is perplexing.
