MarchFourth!
MarchFourth!
MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment. 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. MarchFourth is, in a word, FUN!

Fifteen MarchFourth musicians traveled from Portland, Oregon to New Orleans, Louisiana to record their fourth studio album, MAGIC NUMBER, self-released in September 2016. With Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael “Count” Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Trombone Shorty) at the helm, 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.

“Perfectly merging the artistic spirit of Portland with the musical spectacle of New Orleans, MarchFourth put on one of the most complete shows of any band on any stage. From rocking big band jam tunes, choreography and feats of strength that need to be seen to be believed, MarchFourth entertains on every level every second they are on the stage…or off!” ~Live for Live Music

“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. Talented band geeks turned rebels.” ~USAToday

“Just when you think you’ve heard it all, suddenly a band crosses paths with your ears and changes everything… Full of auditory goodness...” ~NYS Music

“Mighty, Explosive, Carnivalesque Brass Band Funk” ~New York Music Daily
The Pamlico Sound
The Pamlico Sound
The Pamlico Sound play authentic, high-energy big band funk in an updated reading of the classic styles of greats like Sly and the Family Stone and Parliament Funkadelic. The interweaving lead vocals of Ghana Queen (LaSha Afarko) and the Reverend EverReady (Will Baumgartner) are laid over a hard-grooving rhythm section and ornamented by the notorious Soul Shouters Horns (Baumgartner, Maus Nomdeguerre, Paul Stadler, and Alice Hansen). With lyrics reminiscent of the intelligence, humor and social consciousness of their legendary influences and a relentlessly upbeat drive to their musical arrangements, the group lifts listeners’ spirits into a rarefied atmosphere. Based in Boulder Colorado, TPS have been driving fans onto the dance floor and happily out of their minds for a half-decade, and show no intention of slowing down. In late 2016, the band released their EP “Jive Church”, which has been getting airplay on local stations such as KGNU and The Colorado Sound. Also in the past year, TPS has shared shows with such great local and national/international acts as Euforquestra, Analog Son, Orgone, and Seun Kuti & Egypt 80; won the 2016 Bolder Boulder Battle of the Bands; and performed live on the radio at KGNU, KBCO and Radio 1190. As stated in Marquee Magazine, “TPS bring the funk wherever they perform. Experiencing their unavoidable dance scene firsthand is a must.” And as the Reverend EverReady says in their audience-interactive “Jive Church” theatrical experience, “The Funk will Set You Free!”
