DEARBORN – Garrison Corner, a Dearborn band offering “Americana music with Michigan and Oklahoma accents,” will share their sounds from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. April 27 in the at Henry Ford Centennial Library.
Admission is free and open to the public. No registration is required.
Garrison Corner members, all Dearborn residents, are Jeff Karoub, George Luckey and Dan Houston. Karoub and Luckey write songs, sing and play guitars. Karoub also adds mandolin, fiddle and a bit of keyboard. Houston mans the drums. The group often expands to include Rom LaPointe on guitar and Amy Luckey on vocals.
Band members met at Dearborn First United Methodist Church, where they discovered a shared love of music. Houston and Luckey worked together at Ford Motor Co.; and Luckey and Karoub, whose children are of similar age, became friends.
The band name is inspired by the street on which the church sits.
The group finds its interests and backgrounds are complementary: Luckey hails from Tulsa, Houston was raised in Detroit, and Karoub grew up in the shadow of Detroit, having played many folk and classical gigs in Dearborn in particular.
Karoub was a featured performer during the 2018 Big Read-Dearborn and headlined the first edition of “Booked: Songwriters at the Library” in 2021.
