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

the band, primarily the drummer, overpowered the sound and we couldn't hear GL for the entire first half. complaints were lodged with the house manager during the first half and at intermission; I was not the only one complaining. As I was leaving at the end, I spoke again to the house manager re the sound problems... he said they had the same problem last year ...WELL WHY THE HELL DIDN'T THEY FIX IT!!!!!
Don't blame GL's voice, for g-d's sake, fix the damn sound system and leave the drummer home !!!!
Gordon Lightfoot first began to gain recognition in the mid-‘60s as a songwriter when his compositions "For Lovin’ Me" and “Early Morning Rain” became hits for Peter, Paul & Mary, and Marty Robbins topped the country charts with “Ribbon of Darkness.” It was not until the start of the ’70s that he became a big success as a solo performer, scoring in 1970 with Sit Down Young Stranger, which contained his hit “If You Could Read My Mind,”. Lightfoot hit a peak in 1974 with Sundown, which went to number one, as did the title song when released on a single. Harmony, his 20th album, was released in May of 2004.
