Free Concerts Not to Miss!

Free concert held in Lions Park featuring headliner MarchFourth and support J Shogren Shanghai’d.

J Shogren Shanghai’d: 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

MarchFourth: 1:00 – 2:45 p.m.

About the Bands: MarchFourth
MarchFourth, the brassy funk, rock and jazz band with multiple performers, including musicians, acrobats, stilters and more, will headline Superday with a performance that will be part concert, part circus, and part booty-shaking phenomenon. Word on the street: You have to see it to believe it!

In April 2015, MarchFourth musicians traveled to New Orleans and spent ten days recording at The Parlor Recording Studio, making their fourth studio album, MAGIC NUMBER, their first in over five years. With Producer Ben Ellman (Galactic) and Engineer/Producer Mikael “Count” Eldridge (DJ Shadow, Tycho, Galactic, Trombone Shorty) at the helm, this album is full of the captivating grooves and brassy swagger you have come to expect from M4, plus a healthy dose of New Orleans magic, with guest appearance by Trombone Shorty, Stanton Moore (drums), and Matt Perrine (sousaphone). The album was fan-funded through Kickstarter and was independently released on September 30, 2016.

About the Bands: J Shogren Shanghai’d
J Shogren Shanghai’d, from Centennial, Wyoming, play a catawampus style of roots music filtered through a contemporary dissonant transmitter. Their free-wheeling style pulls together many musical styles and influences—like an old truck driving down a dirt road with the windows open and dust bouncing off the back.

Fronted by “an affable bear of a man” (NYT), a “brilliant storyteller” (Rootsy), and a “Wyoming music legend” (WY Eagle), their songs have taken them from the local bar scene to the Lincoln Center and Kennedy Center. In a voice “like one of those great bluesmen from ninety years ago” (Oliver di Place), their dark humorous music and stories are “endearingly eclectic” (NewSong) and “like a garden full of wildflowers” (Performing Songwriter).

Their last album Why so Blue, Bird? was runner up for the best WY album a couples years back, and their new album Pulp for Paper is coming out this summer.
