March Fourth Marching Band

I’m a sucker for a brass band music experience, whether it’s the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Bruce’s Seeger Sessions Band, or even a kick ass high school marching band at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. So when our local scene rag here in Phoenix, the New Times, featured a review of the March Fourth Marching Band, I jumped into their web site and checked out some tunes. And I’m glad I did.

March Fourth Marching Band comes from Portland, and is your typical marching band – if they took 5 hits of acid each and marched through the Jim Rose Circus and a gypsy encampment. A core 9 piece band. 10 drummers. 12 horn players. Stilt walkers. Go-go dancers. Lavish costumes. And some wildly entertaining and original music.

Check out Niki D’Andrea’s great review – ‘Cabaret on Crack’ – over here on the New Times site.

And jump into the crack haus…
