MarchFourth Marching Band Kicks Off AMP Concerts' Jan-Feb 2014 Lineup Tonight

AMP Concerts' January lineup has two themes associated with it - the Revolutions International Theatre Festival and Hawaii.

On the Revolutions front, returning will be one of AMP's favorite bands as part of the festival. MarchFourth Marching Band's theatrical, gypsy/punk/cabaret/band vibe is a perfect match for Revolutions and the first concert of the New Year (today, Jan 24 at the Sunshine Theater). AMP will also be presenting one of the homegrown Tricklock productions - "The Menu" - as part of its free library series in late January.

AMP is also looking at creating themed months when it makes sense. In January, AMP will be celebrating Hawaii in conjunction with its third straight year of presenting a Hawaiian Masters concert featuring George Kahumoku Jr and friends (Jan 25 at South Broadway Cultural Center). This year he's bringing along Ledward Ka'apana, an NEA Heritage Fellow on his first visit to New Mexico. George and Led will be offering Hawaiian slack key guitar and ukulele workshops before the show, Pacific Paradise restaurant will be on-hand with Hawaiian food and hula dancing from Ha'aheo O Hawai'i. Those two groups will be teaming up for Wednesday night Hawaiian events at the restaurant on January 25 and 22, and you can also enjoy a free introductory hula class.

In February, AMP will be creating a series of events focusing on Galicia (northern Spain) in conjunction with AMP's visit from master Galician pipe Carlos Núñez. The National Hispanic Cultural Center, Instituto Cervantes and UNM's Latin American & Iberian Studies program will work with AMP to provide Galician cooking classes and a lecture, with some more programs still in development.

MarchFourth Marching Band is a high-energy surrealist global-groove alternative big band, propelled by electric bass, diverse percussion ensemble, and brassy horn section. Visually enhanced by costumed dancing beauties, acrobatic stilt walkers, fire, and theatrics, Portland, OR-based M4 invokes dancing in the streets and beyond! MarchFourth writes and performs its own material, and also draws inspiration from an eclectic range of worldwide influences, such as Eastern European Gypsy Brass, Samba, Funk, Afro-Beat, Big-Band, Jazz, and Rock music, as well as television, film, circus, and Vaudeville. Discover for yourself why this band's previous Albuquerque concerts have been sell-outs!
