Beach Boys, barbershop, be-bob highlights of next Craig concert

The blissful harmonies of a cappella quartet Marcoux Corner will descend upon Craig tomorrow evening in a concert presented by the Craig Concert Association.

The group, who takes their name from an old, run-down, roadside bar in their hometown, Crookston, Minn., will perform at the Moffat County High School Auditorium on Saturday, November 16, at 7:30 pm.

Attendance is limited to Craig Concert Association members only.

"This will be the best concert of the season," said Butch McKune, Publicity Chairman of the concert association. "Marcoux Corner are full of energy and life."

Marcoux Corner will perform a wide range of musical numbers, including everything from Elvis and The Beach Boys to gospel, barber shop and be-bop.

The quartet has been touring the midwest recently, performing everywhere from Indianola, Iowa, to Lebanon, Mont. In Fargo, N.D., they opened for The Beach Boys.

Following Saturday night's concert, three more events will wrap up the concert season.

The next show is January 25, when Craig locals will get to show their performance skills at a talent show.

Prudence Johnson Trio, a classic vocal and duo backup group, will perform on March 30.

The season will wrap up on April 19 with a concert by Dixieland band, Barbary Coast.

This season is Craig Concert Association's first with Allied Concerts Inc. McKune said that relationship has made it possible to bring acts such as Marcoux Corner to Craig.

The concert association's board of 24 directors selects performers after listening to the acts' tapes.

"This is the only live cultural event offered in Craig on a regular basis," McKune said. "It's the community that keeps it alive."

Tickets for next the concert association's 2004-2005 season will go on sale this spring.
