Turning Telluride into a joyride MarchFourth is a brassy, loudass, gd delightful band. If you turned a marching band into a circus and made James Brown the ringleader, that’s about where this band falls. There are dancers, acrobatics, stilt walkers, all to the tune of Louisiana swagger slipping into funk and jazz-fusion. They crowd a stage with life and sound and they’re coming to the Four Corners all the way from Portland, Oregon.
MarchFourth plays at Club Red, 580 Mountain Village Blvd. in Telluride on Saturday, July 29. Doors are at 8 p.m. and show starts at 8:30.
Tix range from $25 to $45.
