MarchFourth Marching Band (M4 to its fans) is a kaleidoscope of musical and visual energy that inspires dancing in an atmosphere of celebration. M4 is a group of as many as 20-something members that tours the country acting the part of a full on marching band, complete with a percussion corps, 7 piece brass section, not to mention stilt walkers and dancers.
Theres only one problem… their tour bus, Razzle Dazzle, which was made in 1984 and has somewhere around a million miles on it, is shot and they need a new one. They have taken the path many other up and coming bands have in recent years and are taking to Kickstarter to raise funds for a new one, deemed Razzle Dazzle 2.0
For helping this great band out you will not be left empty handed… they have an incentive plan set up to reward you for your donation.A $20 donation will get you a M4 CD of your choice, $50 will get you a signed copy of the new album Magnificent Beast as well as a t-shirt, $80 gets you a vinyl copy of the album in addition to a goodies bag, and so on and so forth all the way up to a $10,000 donation which gets you a private show with March Fourth and a tour of the bus you helped fund.
But hurry up! Time is running out as this project will only be funded if at least $46,064 is pledged by Thursday Mar 8, 9:57pm EST. They are currently at $25,790 so there is some work to be done!
