Marcoux Corner

Facebook

The first thing you notice when you see Marcoux Corner is the sound, it's pure vocal extravagance. This four piece A Cappella group combines over 20 years of voice lessons and vocal study at one of the country's most prestigious colleges for vocal performance, Concordia College in Moorhead.

The sound they produce when they join in harmony will make you rethink your attitude about music. It is, at the same time, beautiful and full of so much energy you can't help but tap your toe and grin from ear to ear. That is what separates Marcoux Corner from everyone else on the scene today, toe-tapping FUN. Kevin, Brent, Josh and Dave step onto the stage and the audience becomes part of the show. These guys don't stand up there and just perform; they engage everyone through the sheer force of their individual personalities.

Marcoux Corner: Buyin' Time

Fargo, North Dakota, home of the Blenders, produces another top notch a cappella quartet. "Buyin' Time" is an impressive, poised Contemporary CD in the mold of Rockapella and the Coats: strong vocal percussion, tight-as-a-drum arrangements, smooth, perfect harmonies. And that's not all - there's brilliant original songwriting by group members Josh Baesler ("In My Dreams," "Changes" and "Buyin'"), Kevin Taylor (the infectious-hooked "Contemptible" and the Simon & Garfunkle-esque "Someday Soon"), and Brent Thorson ("Your Kisses). Add to that dynamite covers of "Mustang Sally," the Mamas and the Papas' "California Dreamin'," Kenny Loggins' "Footloose" and Van Morrison's "Moondance," and you have something very special. Watch out for these guys!

Marcoux Corner: Live

In this live CD Marcoux (Mahr-coo) Corner, their 3rd, prove that yes, in fact, more than one outstanding male Contemporary quartet hails from the home of the Blenders, Fargo, ND. 12 well-chosen pop cover, with funny banter segues and interactions with the audience - all adds up to big fun! Lennon/McCartney's "Ob, La, Di," "M.T.A.," "You're Sixteen," the Monkees' "I'm A Believer," the completely silly "Dolphin Boy," "One Fine Day," Jimmy Buffet's "Margaritaville," the manic, tongue-twisting "Johnny Saucepan," "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," Van Morrison's "Moondance" and "The Sunshine Medley" are all wonderful. It's the next best thing to being in the audience for this very funny, highly entertaining show.

Marcoux Corner: Tidings

Tidings is yet another great achievement on the part of those four talented singers from North Dakota. This CD comes complete with new arrangements, all written by one of the four members, of 10 of our favorite Christmas carols. Most memorable are "Winter Wonderland," "White Christmas," "I'll Be Home For Christmas," and "Silent Night."

Marcoux Corner: Tinsel

Minneapolis, MN-based all-male Contemporary quartet Marcoux Corner brings us a beautifully-crafted Christmas album of 10 tunes, all with cutting-edge arrangements by members of the group. Mel Torme's "The Christmas Song," "Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells," the two traditional carols "Oh, Come, Oh Come Emmanuel" and "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen," the pop favorites "Frosty the Snowman," "Christmas Time is Here," "Baby It's Cold Outside" (featuring Nancy Harms) and "What are You Doing New Year's Eve," both by Frank Loesser. Our final favorite is the very funny "Huge on the Luge," written by the possibly fictional Moxy Fruvous. "Tinsel" is a sweet-harmonied, big fun Christmas collection from Josh, David, Kevin and Brent, our friends at Marcoux Corner!
