California Gypsy Jazz Quartet, Fishtank Ensemble,...

Don't miss this coming Tuesday, January 25, 7 p.m. at the Clovis Civic Center the Cultural Arts Series performance of Fishtank Ensemble. LA Weekly calls them "one of the most thrilling young acts on the planet" and this dynamic, virtuosic, and fiery quartet will take you on a musical journey you will never forget. The band members include classical trained violinist and vocalist Ursula Knudson, gifted fiddler Fabrice Martinez, master Flamenco guitarist Doug "Douje" Smolens, and the world's best slap bass player Djordje Stijepovic. Tackling everything from French hot jazz to wild Serbian and Transylvanian gypsy anthems, Flamenco, and oddball originals, Fishtank Ensemble songs originate from their own varied musical and national backgrounds, as well as from their adventures and travels. Presented by Clovis Community College, The Citizens Bank of Clovis.

Tickets may be purchased at the Clovis Community College cashier windows, the Clovis-Curry County Chamber of Commerce or at the ITT Office at Cannon Air Force Base. For more information, call 769-4035 or
