Everything New is Old Again! What do you get when you mix original members of MarchFourth Marching Band, Trashcan Joe, Sweet Juice, Karaoke From Hell, and The Libertine Belles?

Then, you mix in crazy and comedic originals with unlimited and unexpected outrageousness? You would get The Saloon Ensemble! – And we’re going all-out for New Year’s Eve’s “Judgment Day” Celebration. This anti thumpa-thumpa acoustic ensemble includes banjo, electric guitar, bass, washboard, accordion, drums, and, of course, the legendary boot-stick known in all cultures as the “ZOB.” This is the friends&family gathering you’ve been looking for!! – Complete with Dancing, Sing-a-Longs, Debauchery, Tap-Dancing, Pearly Gates, Devils, Angels, Hell-Casting, Stripping, and many other delightful surprises!LoveBomb Go-Go Marching Band call themselves “Intergalactic Marching Freaks from Outer Space.” They are primal, orgasmic, and extremely well-dressed. Their music is raw, on the floor, and up-in-your-soul with unexpected brilliance, playing Middle Eastern, Balkan, and many other groovy, cross-genre flavors. With mostly all-original music, founders Mars and Bhajan have re-defined the contemporary drum ‘n’ brass phenomenon with amazing flare, pulse, originality, and delivery. They have been marching band connoisseurs themselves for literally decades performing all over the country, Black Rock city, and neighboring galaxies. LoveBomb is the most exciting explosion in Portland to date. Having recently played Bumbershoot 2012 and with Rebirth Brass Band, they have dazzled many a wide-eyed sweaty crowd with their highly unique and electric magnificence. Catch ’em while you can.
