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
Most of the seats at this venue are plastic director's chair height style with built in arms and a footrest. 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

Catherine Russell was hardly an overnight sensation. But following her 2006 debut recording Cat, she was suddenly headlining jazz festivals and opening for rock stars like Steely Dan and Paul Simon. Her road to recognition has roots as deep as the mix of jazz, blues, folk, and Americana that has made her a rising star. Inextricably linked to her ascension is the growing legend of her musical father, Luis Russell, who was Louis Armstrong’s musical director.
In this concert, she honors both men by featuring jazz and Swing Era repertoire with a ten-piece orchestra including guitarist Matt Munisteri, pianist Mark Shane, trumpeter Jon Erik-Kellso, trombonist John Allred, saxophonist/clarinetist Dan Block, saxophonist Andy Farber, bassist Lee Hudson, and drummer Mark McLean.
