MarchFourth Marching Band showcases music and circus feats Dec. 20 at Wild Buffalo

The MarchFourth Marching Band is a mobile, big-band spectacular based in Portland, Ore., with a 12-piece horn section and a 10-piece drum and percussion corps anchored by a pumping, battery-powered electric bass. Stilt-walkers, unicycles, fire eaters, puppets, flag twirlers, burlesque dancers, clown antics and acrobatics are just some of the things in store for audiences.

MarchFourth writes and performs its own material, drawing inspiration from a wide range of influences, such as Eastern European gypsy brass, samba, Latin, funk, Afro-beat, big-band, jazz and rock music, as well as television, film, circus and vaudeville.

The band will perform at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20, at Wild Buffalo, 208 W. Holly St. Tickets are $15 advance, $17 at the door. Details: wildbuffalo.net, 360-746-8733.
