MarchFourth! at O.P. Rockwell
Tickets: $18 - $40
MarchFourth! is a mobile big band spectacular, propelled by electric bass, a diverse percussion ensemble and brassy horn section. Visually enhanced by costumed dancing beauties, acrobatic stilt walkers, unicycles, fire arts, life size marionettes, and many more theatrics, M4 invokes dancing in the streets and beyond! The sound is huge, melodic, and dynamic, taking audiences on a musical journey around the globe. MarchFourth writes and performs its own material, and also draws inspiration from an eclectic range of worldwide influences, such as Eastern European gypsy brass, samba, latin, funk, afro-beat, bigband, jazz, and rock music, as well as television, film, circus, and vaudeville.
With exceptional musical quality and energy, and the spectacle of the dancers, M4 "rocks" with the best of them, entertaining the audience with an overthe-top explosion of performance, color and charisma.
MarchFourth! has played hundreds of shows in all kinds of venues, including music festivals (Voodoo Fest, Lotus Festival, Festival International de Louisianne, Echo Project Music Fest, Oregon Country Fair, High Sierra Music Festival) and high-profile concert venues (Hollywood Bowl, Crystal Ballroom, Kennedy Center for Performing Arts), sporting events (NBA halftime shows, FIFA World Cup fanfest, and Cyclo-cross National Championships) and many corporate, civic, and private events.
Released in February of this year, Wrong Side of The Road is The Coffis Brothers second full length album. Recorded at Gadgetbox Studios in Santa Cruz with engineer and producer, Andy Zenczak (Camper Van Beethoven’s Greg Lisher), the album features contributions from friends of the band like Jim Lewin (Great American Taxi, Todd Snider), Ryan Avellone (The Brothers Comatose) and jazz vocalist Tammi Brown (Stanley Jordan).
Getting out and playing for fans both old and new has always been first and foremost for The Coffis Brothers. It was after all, these fans that funded Wrong Side of The Road on Kickstarter – pledging over 150% what the band needed. It’s not only concertgoers that are taking note either…
“The Coffis Brothers & the Mountain Men have developed a sound that has an easy rock vibe that’s actually hip.” – San Francisco Chronicle
