Benton Center Acoustic Showcase Features Marquette Gumbo

The LBCC Benton Center Acoustic Showcase will feature the band “Marquette Gumbo” on Friday, Jan. 21, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Benton Center student lounge, 757 NW Polk Ave., Corvallis.

Southern-rooted Marquette Gumbo, known for their lively Corvallis Farmers Market riffs, will fill the Benton Center with their style of musical genius. Sid Beam and Joe Casprowiak, musical brothers for over 40 years, comprise the base for Marquette Gumbo.

Often joined by other local artists, Joe and Sid make music that synthesizes the roots of music heard in the American South in the first half of the 20th century. Marquette Gumbo's original music draws from the heart and soul of that musical time and place, reflecting the excellent songwriting of that era in new ways. .

The Acoustic Showcase is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the LBCC Benton Center at 541-757-8944.
