MarchFourth Marching Band will play a street concert in downtown Aspen on Friday, March 29. M4, as their devotees call them, throws itself and the audience into a swirling volcano of high-energy music and spectacle. What began as a Fat Tuesday party on March 4, 2003, in Portland, Oregon has over the last 8 years become one of the nation’s best live touring acts, and thanks to word-of-mouth will soon be graduating from “best kept secret” to a band on the brink of exploding in popularity.

Grouplove will take to the same downtown Aspen stage on Saturday, March 30. Their live shows sweep up the audience with an energetic blend of upbeat indie-pop, rock and folk. Their shows are kinetic and engaging. Their debut album Never Trust a Happy Song, has found critical and commercial success and brought the group’s unique sound to a legion of fans. Visit for more information on the band and to hear music previews.

“We love continuing the Spring Jam tradition of showcasing high-energy musical acts in Aspen/Snowmass,” said John Rigney, Vice President, Sales & Events, Aspen Skiing Company. “Mix snow, sunshine, great skiing and riding into the Spring Jam party, and we have the biggest spring celebration in the Rockies.”
