Marcoux Corner

Marcoux Corner

Male Contemporary Quartet from Richfield, MN, United States.

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.

They have brought their show to huge corporate clients like General Mills and the Disney Corporation as well as Thrivent Financial and IBM. Every audience, be it retired vets at the 4th of July Festival in Morristown, MN, CEO's of major corporations in San Antonio, TX, middle school students in Hudson, WI, college kids in Erie, PA and Denver, CO or employees of the New Ulm Medical Center, there simpy is not a crowd these guys don't amaze.

Marcoux Corner believes so strongly in the FUN aspect of music and performance they carry it with them everywhere they go. The show doesn't have the ego that most performers have; Marcoux Corner just wants to have fun and wants to make sure that you, the audience, have fun as well. Thank you for viewing this page, please take your time and look at the review sheets and articles linked at our press page and see for yourself what so many thousands have already learned. When it comes to pure entertainment and great music there simply isn't anyone out there who can do it as well as Marcoux Corner.

Marcoux Corner : Tinsel

Review: 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!

Songlist: The Christmas Song, Kay Thompson's Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Christmas Time is Here, O Come, O Come. Emmanuel, Baby It's Cold Outside -featuring Nancy Harms, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Huge on the Luge, Oh Come All Ye Faithful, What Are You Doing New Year's Eve?

In My Dreams

Marcoux Corner : Buyin' Time

Review: 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!

Songlist: Mustang Sally, In My Dreams, Contemptible, Changes, California Dreamin', Someday Soon, Your Kisses, Footloose (Live), Moondance, Buyin' Time

Marcoux Corner : Live : 00  1 CD : 

Marcoux Corner : Live

Review: 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.

Songlist: Ob La Di, M.T.A, You're Sixteen, Build Me Up Buttercup, Aluminium, I'm A Believer, Garden State, Dolphin Boy, Bad Choreograhy, One Fine Day, Burro Burrow, Margaritaville, Relaxing Tapes, Johnny Saucepan, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, Find Someone, Moondance, The Sunshine Medley
