Quixotic Fusion will be performing with MarchFourth Marching Band for a few special Halloween Balls across the midwest. The three city trek will hit Lawrence, KS at Liberty Hall on Oct 28, St. Louis, MO at The Pageant on Oct 29 and Springfield, MO at Gillioz Theatre on Halloween night. These two groups define the term “performance art” and both bands feature some damn talented musicians as well, this will be a spectacle NOT to be missed!
For the past five years, Kansas City’s Quixotic has created a full spectrum of music with sounds rich in electronic tones that soar and twist from emotive rich classical string progressions to driving tribal dance music. Composer Anthony Magliano, along with an award winning band including violinist Shane Borth, keyboardist/vocalist Laura Scarborough, drummer Brandon Draper and Rick Willoughby on Bass, create music with instrumental foundations and diversity that is meant to inspire movement within the group’s other half; dancers, multi media designers, and aerialists. Quixotic’s use of effects, synths and laptops harness technology in a unique way that’s never been seen, or heard before.
The innovative musical technology is combined with the fierce and organic rhythm section to create a marriage between two musical worlds within the five-piece band. This musical combination creates a foundation for the dancers, aerialists and multi media designers to freely explore themselves creatively. Thus resulting in a full sensory experience like none other. www.QuixoticFusion.com
MarchFourth Marching Band (known as M4 by fans) is a large band and performance troupe from Portland, OR that was formed in 2003. M4 is hard to describe, and though the music can stand alone, the live show is unparalleled, unexpected, and uplifting. MarchFourth Marching Band connects with so many different types of audiences that they have been invited to play a huge variety of events over the past seven years–everything from the music festival main stage to the elementary school gymnasium to the streets of a town near you. www.MarchFourthMarchingBand.com
Aside from two of the most unique performances you will ever witness, there will also be a costume contest for all fans in attendance with a chance to WIN TICKETS TO NEXT YEARS WAKARUSA FESTIVAL, where this year Quixotic had their own stage featuring a set each night immediately following the main stage headliner.
