MarchFourth Marching Band

MarchFourth Marching Band

This mobile big band spectacular (known as M4 to fans) is a sonic party of electric bass, a diverse percussion ensemble and a brassy horn section, and a visual kaleidoscope of costumed dancing beauties, acrobatic stilt walkers, fire arts (venue permitting), hula-hoopers, and many more theatrics. 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, big-band, jazz, and rock music, as well as television, film, circus, and vaudeville. With exceptional musical quality and memorable energy, and the spectacle of the dancers, M4 “rocks” with the best of them while entertaining the audience with an over-the-top explosion of performance, color and charisma.
MarchFourth Marching Band appeals to a wide range of people and has played hundreds of shows in all kinds of venues, including music festivals (Voodoo Experience, Wakarusa, Bumbershoot, SxSW, Lotus Festival, Festival International de Louisianne, Lightning in a Bottle, 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), corporate appearances (Volvo, Microsoft, Cricket Mobile), as well as community, civic and private events.

Kwame Binea Shakedown

Kwame Binea was born in West London with native origins in Ghana. He is a self-proclaimed rocker to the core, but he has peppered his own brand of “Roots Rock” which embodies his fertile and culturally diverse personal saga.

“Mix Rock and Roll with Silky Soul, screaming blues with folk and you get Kwame Binea” says The Apollo Theater. “My music is organic,” says Kwame “, it embodies life, love and struggles. I’m driven by my mantra of Peace, Love & Positivity so that propels and drives the messages for most of my lyrical content. It’s also party music and danceable, so if our music moves you and makes you move, that’s a great night”..

In 2015, The Kwame Binea Shakedown released their self titled debut EP with celebrated singles “Let Go” and “little lady”. The band then embarked on a national tour in the fall of 2015 taking them from Vermont to California and everywhere in between. In 2016 the band would set out on the road to play during SXSW in Austin, TX then overseas on a 3 nation European tour hitting Netherland, Belguim and the UK. On their return states side a SOLD OUT performance at historic Apollo Theater music cafe.
