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

Jil Aigrot, the singing voice of Edith Piaf in the movie, La Vie En Rose, is as passionate and magnificent in concert with her homage to Piaf as she is on film. She channels Piaf’s sound and body language with natural grace, and between each song she talks to the audience in her own natural voice. In her superb program all of the great Piaf songs are not only relived but given a special magic with Aigrot’s stunning voice.
Raised in the south of France, Aigrot specializes in the art of the French song. She grew up immersed in the music of Piaf, her mother’s favorite. As a child who knew she would be a singer herself, she was impressed by Piaf’s energy and touched by her emotionally charged lyrics. Piaf’s love songs resonated with Aigrot, especially as a teenager. “This voice came out me very naturally … When I was a student at the conservatory, I was told that my voice was not lyrical enough, that I should sing French pop songs.”
