5th & B will be performing in Corvallis this Saturday at Cloud and Kelly's on 1st St. They will be premiering a new suite composed by Mike Curtis inspired by his many visits to Mexico. Mike will also be reading from his book, Memories of a Musician in Mexico during the performance.  Show should begin around 9pm or so.  Music until midnight!
