Larger Than Life
MarchFourth is an internationally-acclaimed, genre-breaking force in the world of entertainment — a sonic explosion delivered by 20 musicians and dancers who travel the world, year-round, taking audience members of all ages, from all walks of life, on a joy-inducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking, soul-stirring journey that defies categorization.
The colorful explosion of brassy funk, rock and jazz is all about the groove. This larger-than-life group of musicians and acrobats tours the country year-round, bringing a spirit of celebration wherever they go.
Their most recent and fourth studio album, “Magic Num-ber,” was self-released in September 2016. The album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you’d expect from MarchFourth, plus a healthy dose of New Orleans magic, with guest appearance by Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums) and Matt Perrine (sousaphone). The album was fan-funded through Kickstarter.
As USA Today acclaimed about the album, “From the first note to the last, the sound was pumping and the fun never stopped. … It’s worth noting that there are serious musicians behind all the fun. It’s obvious these guys (and gals) have had lots of training and formal practice. Talent-ed band geeks turned rebels.”
