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
Reviews & Ratings
Streams of Whiskey is a Pogues, Shane MacGowan, and The Popes tribute band. If you want to hear “Fields of Athenry” and “I’ll Tell Me Ma,” then don’t bother coming to see this band. They play Pogues, Pogues, and only Pogues!
Streams of Whiskey was born out of desperation. Barnacle Bill was idiotically hired for an Irish gig at Egan and Sons on St. Paddy’s Day in 2007. Once Steve (drums), Stuart (guitar), and Yianni (bass) realized they didn’t actually know any Irish songs, the race began and the recruiting was on. Luckily, Steve’s girlfriend Karen (tin whistle) is psychotically obsessed with Shane MacGowan and The Pogues, and Steve (a distant third) offered to be the musical director while basically picking her favorite songs. A month later they managed to bump Steve from drums to vocals and Karen from musical director to tin whistle. A few months and a gig later, the group’s favorite bartender Paulie Walnuts entered the fray on drums. (Walnuts has since blown himself up whilst lighting a cig after too much Jameson!) Stepping into his shoes is Tim Alworth. Rounding out the group was Jeff “Polly” Young on fiddle.
Together, these seven musicians recreate the magic, mayhem, drunkenness, and fun that was and is The Pogues. All in all, the band is pretty much a load of misfits that somehow found each other under the umbrella of the Pogues. These musicians love what they do, and it shows!
