MarchFourth Marching Band is a mobile big band spectacular, consisting of a 12-piece horn section (4 saxophones, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets), a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, anchored by electric bass (battery powered).  It all began when a handful of artists and musicians in Portland, OR decided to put together a marching band for a Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras party on March 4th.  The sound is huge, melodic, and dynamic, taking audiences on a musical journey around the globe. 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.

The WHAT CHEER? BRIGADE is a rowdy 19-piece brass band of Providence that combines a punk rock ethos and the mobility of marching bands. We play Luddite hardcore – loud, fast music that reclaims public space and requires no electricity. We are a party band, and our sound incorporate elements of musical traditions such as Bollywood, Balkan, New Orleans, samba, and punk…and that’s just the short list. (Anchor Brain)
