MarchFourth
MarchFourth
MarchFourth is a joy-inducing force of entertainment, blending brassy funk, rock, and jazz, with a visual dazzle of acrobats, stilters and more.

Their fourth studio album, MAGIC NUMBER was recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana with Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael “Count” Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Galactic, Trombone Shorty) at the helm. The album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you’d expect from M4, 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 (out 9/30/16).

“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!” ~Rex Thomson, 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. I was a music major in college and it’s obvious these guys (and gals) have had lots of training and formal practice. Talented band geeks turned rebels. When one of the horn players steps up to improvise a solo, you know it’s going to be a treat.” ~ Tim Leffel, USAToday

“You could call MarchFourth a Vaudeville circus, or a sexy carnivalesque sideshow of animalistic proportions where all sense of decorum is beaten into submission. I call it a panoply for the senses, a celebratory feast of friends, a visually stunning performance that sears itself into your brain.” ~Mike Greenblatt, The Aquarian
The Skruffians
The Skruffians
Purveying an infectious mix of ska, reggae, jazz, and soul, The Skruffians are a Minneapolis-based instrumental collective that celebrates the classic sounds of 60's Jamaica. Inspired by The Skatalites, the legendary group that backed Bob Marley, The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, and countless other early Jamaican artists, The Skruffians' joyful island grooves, jazzy horns, and soulful Hammond organ brings to mind balmy evenings with a cold drink and good friends. It's the musical equivalent of sunshine.
