Formed from the most talented deadbeats and drifters that could be rounded up, Emperor Norton’s Stationary March Band is compirsed of a group of raucous and rambunctious musicians that will honk, wail, blow, beat, bounce, scream and serenade their way into your hearts. Playing anything that won’t break after vigorous use; their instrumentation is a unique blend of brass, winds, violin, accordion, percussion and an eclectic rhythm section.
Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band combines the rich musical history of the circus and the vagabond peoples of Europe with the raw energy of avant-garde jazz and the irreverence and fun of today’s Vaudeville & Steampunk for a sound that is somehow familiar yet like no other. Label them anyway you like! Call them gypsy steamfunk, call them avant world fusion, call them experimental big band, call them circus noise! They may be tough to sum up, but it’s easy to tell you that they’ll show you a good time!
