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

It was a fantastic show - full of energy and Angelique's special warmth. She is a ball of energy with an incredible voice and a knack for including her audience in the joy her music brings. Her voice is clear and sharp and strong and her repertoire full of high energy, upbeat music.
SOPAC was a special surprise - intimate, comfortable, a good sound system and acoustics and although iI drove, it's literally AT the train station and an easy commute from Manhattan. Great sports bar/Italian place on the corner for a drink and a bite before or after a show.
