By Brian Palmer

Band geeks rule

March Fourth marches to the beat of its own drums

By Christian James Wilhelm
It’s not impossible to explain March Fourth, though it certainly is a challenge. To see the band play is to have joyous percussion and bass work into your ear canals as you find yourself surrounded by dancers and acrobats. Everyone wears intricate, colorful costumes adding to the audible liveliness.
