This supremely entertaining 4 piece band have stood the test of time – and then some! One of the most famous, best loved event bands in Canada, March Hare are masters in the art of entertaining audiences large or small. With an uncanny knack for sounding just like your favorite artists, they “rock out” some of the greatest songs of all time from across all the genres.
They also perform a “Through the Decades” show with crazy costume changes, authentically delivered to accurately reflect each decade both musically and visually. March Hare are self sufficient in that they can provide their own sound and lighting system. A top class, consummately professional band in every way.
Along with a fantastic variety of music spanning over five decades, the March Hare Band has developed several theme shows including the enormously successful "Thru the Decades" which has received rave reviews from everyone.
Some entertainers are very good at a specific genre or artist, but we have found that many clients and audiences prefer a variety of musical tastes (older, newer, lighter, heavier, etc.), and the March Hare Band is unequaled in offering top notch versions of the widest range of music. Three lead singers, exceptional musical talent, many years of experience, a full costume show on request, and a tremendous love of performing come together to make the "Thru the Decades" show a very special experience.
"Thru the Decades" is a very fun and entertaining musical time travel from the late 50s right up today. Older people love it because it begins with many of their favorite hits from the past, and younger people love it because it celebrates both old and new and brings together the history of rock/pop music history right up to today. With well over twenty costume bits, it is VERY entertaining and also fully danceable. Everyone loves it!
