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

Not a problem for me, but in observing the audience as I waited for the performance to begin, noticed that for some patrons, it was difficult for them to comfortably fit in the chairs since they are not adjustable in terms of width. Be forewarned and potentially spring the extra bucks for the select café style table seats down in the orchestra level if this is a concern for you or ask the staff at Lincoln Center to help find you a more comfortable location if possible.Marty Stuart & Connie Smith info • Feb 20 2014 star this tip starred
