Day one includes the celebratory arrival at the Vincci Hotel in Lisbon and a casual lunch on the famous rua augusta. Soaking up the atmosphere and live street entertainment, it was easy to loose yourself in the rich and historic culture of Portugal. Touring the classical city of Lisbon the day ends with a stop at the Belem Tower (Torre de Belem). Lisbon's Belem Tower was built from 1515 to 1520 and once served as a watchtower for Lisbon when it stood in the middle of the Tagus River. Portugal vacations are pleasant surprises offering the opportunity for relaxation along some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe and some of its richest history. Set to the western edge of Europe, Portugal is noted for its seafood cuisine, particularly in Lisbon. A ZGraphix Production. Produced by Jeff Zavala. http://zgraphix.org
Titanium Sporkestra is a renegade marching band from Seattle. Featuring and founded by members of infamous Seattle marching band Infernal Noise Brigade and legendary Seattle band TchKunG!, Titanium Sporkestra delivers a bombastic blend of heavy world drumming as well as traditional drum line music, tweaked just a little bit and turned up to 11. “Titanium Sporkestra plays everything from Black Sabbath to old school Balkan beats and gypsy anthems. Add in a dash of military influence and an unprecedented amount of sexuality to the show, and the band spends more time in the crowd then on stage- dominating the entire crowd into musical submission. Band isn’t just for nerds anymore- it’s sexy, fun, and incredibly talented.” -Popwreckoning.com Website: http://titaniumsporkestra.com/ Filmed by Jeff Zavala on March 25, 2012.

Range of Music As the history and present state of brass, drum, marching, and roving bands shows, they are part of a rich and diverse history of styles, influences, cultures, and purposes. We hope to play songs that celebrate those histories, while having a great time playing together and with our audiences.
