Dennis Stroughmatt and Creole Stomp

zydeco 240x160 A Cajun Creole Honkytonk Party!  Mardi Gras Hosted by Gaslight!

Date: Saturday, February 17th at Harlan Hall in Marshall, IL  

Creole Stomp has captured the ears and the feet of Louisiana music fans across North America. Led by French-speaking Creole fiddler and accordionist Dennis Stroughmatt, Creole Stomp keeps listeners enthralled and dancers moving on the floor with a rollicking mix of contemporary blues, swamp pop and traditional Cajun and zydeco dance tunes. Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heart and passion conveyed from the stage—music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band. In fact, over the years the band has become informally known as “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music,” for their well-oiled, dancer-driven, crowd-pleasing marathon jams and improvisation.

Colony Club

christmas2017 240x180christmas 20122 240x180Gaslight Art Colony is pleased to sponsor this group of Marshall High School art students. The Colony Club meets twice a week to work on their projects. Gaslight’s local artists volunteer to be on hand to mentor and guide the students through their projects with no cost to the members. Gaslight hosted a Christmas pizza party for the students on Monday, December 11th. The board and 7 of the 9 club members were present. The Colony Club will be displaying their art work at First Bank and Trust and First Finacial Bank. They hope to compete their project in January. This program will help students gain experience in Community/School Service Projects. Gaslight Art Colony is so pleased to be able to nurture their talent and provide a place where they can gather for refreshments and fellowship. We are pleased to be able to promote art through our students and appreciate their hard work and effort. We look forward to sharing the finished projects with our Marshall community. Membership to the club is open to any student interested in art. For more information please contact Gaslight Art Colony 217-293-1050.
