MarchFourth! is a mobile, big-band spectacular based in Portland, Oregon. It has a 12-piece horn section (four saxophones, four trombones, four trumpets), a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, anchored by a pumping, battery-powered electric bass. Stilt-walkers, unicycles, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, burlesque dancers, clown antics and acrobatics are just some of the things in store for audiences of this eclectic big band. MarchFourth writes and performs its own material, and also draws inspiration from a wide range of worldwide influences, such as Eastern European gypsy brass, samba, Latin, funk, afro-beat, big-band, jazz and rock music, as well as television, film, circus and vaudeville.
Cost: $19 advance; $22 day of show
