M4 has been seen on stages from ESPN’s Espy Awards, to festivals like Wakarusa and High Sierra, to prestigious venues from The Kennedy Center to a cultural exchange tour of China.On September 30, 2016 MarchFourth released their fourth studio album, Magic Number. Magic Number was recorded in New Orleans, LA. with Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael "Count" Eldridge (Galactic, Trumbone Shorty) at the helm. This album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you'd expect from M4, plus a healthy dose of NOLA magic, with guest appearances by Trumbone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums), Ben Ellman (harmonica) and Matt Perrine (sousaphone). “MarchFourth has much to be proud of on Magic Number.  Each song is a celebration of their musical identity, each note coming from a place that is wholly their own. Managing to be both idiosyncratic and universal is an impressive feat by itself, but doing it while maintaining a completely infectious spirit is a move that shows the maturity and comfort of MarchFourth. They are truly modern masters of the big band sound.” – Live for Live MusicAbout Watkins Glen:Watkins Glen is a Bend Oregon based Rock n' Roll band that reaches skyward to create magical musical moments while standing firmly on a solid foundation of THE BAND, Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers Band, Little Feat and many other greats of improvisational Rock n' Roll.
