The next KASU Coffee House Concert will be Thursday October 23 at 7:00 p.m. with El Buho, the Memphis jazz-rock fusion band led by renowned Arkansas trumpeter Gary Gazaway.

This dynamic group features keyboardist Patrick Fusco, bassist Doc Samba, and drummer Peewee Jackson, all from Memphis. Gazaway plays trumpet and keyboard and leads the group through original songs and modified Jazz standards that can be melodic, mellow, and intense, and contain open sections for modern free-form improvisation, with traditional, ethnic, and current rhythm styles layered underneath. His music has been described as an incredible fusion of Blues, Jazz, Rock, and Latin, that creates a fresh instrumental sound.

Tickets are now on sale   for ten dollars each at Dr. Carl Abraham’s office, 311 S. Church on a first-come first-served basis. The box office is open from 1 pm until 4:30 pm Monday –Thursday.
