March Fourth Marching Band is a mobile big band spectacular, consisting of a 14-piece horn section (four saxophones, four trombones, five trumpets and tuba), a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, anchored by electric bass (battery powered). The sound is huge, melodic and dynamic, taking audiences on a musical journey around the globe. March Fourth 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.
Weaving Persian melodies and poetry into a lush soundscape, New York-born vocalist Haale and her band craft an hypnotic aural experience that pays homage to Sufi musical traditions while courting tribal beats and fresh electronic sounds. Prepare to be transported somewhere precariously yet beautifully balanced between the ancient and modern, East and West.
Skidmore Fountain is an indie/electro band from Brooklyn, NY.
