Born at a Mardi Gras party in Portland, Oregon, MarchFourth Marching Band has become one of the nation's best live touring acts -- and you can catch them outdoors on Pier 15 backed by beautiful waterfront views. More than just a concert, a MarchFourth show is a celebration, with stilt-walkers, unicyclists, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, clown antics, acrobatics and more, accompanied by an eclectic big band in marching band costumes. Anchored by funky electric bass and featuring a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum/percussion corps, MarchFourth takes you on a journey from the swamps of Louisiana to the gypsy camps of Eastern Europe to the African jungle by way of Brazil, while honoring the musical traditions of American funk, rock and jazz. Opening for MarchFourth is Brother Joscephus and the Love Revolution, a foot-stompin' gumbo of roots rock, old-school soul and New Orleans rhythms. Learn More

Great seats, nice theatre, ample parking.. back-up band seems to be painfully out of tune and the timing with the performers were not in sync. The choice of pieces performed had no flow until the Broadway theme at the end. Many of the performers, when asked to comment on their pieces, looked like deer's in the headlights and were not comfortable speaking in public making the audience uncomfortable as well.
The finale seems to be off...or not rehearsed enough-the timing was
bad . There were a few standouts but I do not think that the bulk of the performers are going to be the next big stars.
I am sure that family members who attended loved seeing their loved ones performing that evening but as someone who went randomly, I was disappointed with the evening.
