60 - CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 19 - December 25, 1997 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Steppin Out r . . ,' k Sir Guy's packs one-two punch with Martians, Hexbelt By Jen EUingsworth Sir Guy's Restaurant and Pub in Rehoboth Beach will pack a one- two punch this weekend. Proving that the resort area isn't just a place to witness great live entertainment during the summer season, Sir Guy's will host two of its most popular regular bands on Friday and Saturday nights. On Friday, Dec. 19, the estab- lishment will present the Martians, and then on Saturday, Dec. 20, it will feature Hexbelt. The Baltimore, Md.-based Mar- tians, well-known as powerful performers and equally snappy dressers, make frequent stops at Sir Guy's, especially when the venue presents its "Full Moon Saloon" parties. Their sound may remind you a little of Green Day, but their grinding, energetic mod- ern rock and punk-influenced stage presence are entirely origi- nal. The group has been taking the east coast by storm since the early '90s, when it received airplay on several radio stations. As for Hexbelt, well, you truly have to see this band live to enjoy the overall experience. An extremely inventive band that seems to appeal to almost everyone, Hexbelt possesses the ability to relate to the masses. Billing themselves as "a unique band in an age of increasingly generic modern rock music," Hex- belt was formerly called Once Fish, but later changed its name and continued to make music. Characterized by lead singer/guitarist and songwriter Dann Otemiller's stream-of-con- sciousness lyrics, Hexbelt consis- tently keeps the audience in tune with its message. In other local entertainment news ...

Marshall Trust. The trust's gift will be used to help the league renovate the his- toric Homestead gardens, planted by league founder Louis Cham- bers Corkran. Esther S. Marshall, for whom the trust is named, was a contemporary of Mrs. Corkran. "We are extremely grateful for this gift." said League Director Nancy O'Brien. "We will be able to make great strides in renovating the garden, and returning it to the beauty that Mrs. Corkran envi- sioned, with some changes to make it even more accessible to the public." This grant, along with a $5,000 gift from the Rehoboth Art League Theatre Group, serves as the basis for a larger fund-raising campaign that the league will formally launch in the Spring. The campaign will support plans for renovating the, which include the hiring of a land- scape architect with experieoce in historic landscape architecture, the adoption of a plan for renovation and maintenance of the gardens, the actual renovation and ongoing maintenance of the property, and the enhancement of the endow- ment created to support the care of the gardens, make a donation to support the call Nancy O'Brien at 227-8408.

The group, made up of Art League members who subscribe to a series of theatre performances, donates proceeds from subscriptions to the league on an annual basis. "The theatre group has been very generous to the League for years. This latest gift represents a sub- stantial amount of support for our latest efforts to renovate league founder Mrs. Corkran's gardens," said league director Nancy O'Brien. "Under Sally Wilson's leadership, the group has grown to become an important part of the league's structure of support. We could not succeed in planning for theleague's future without them." The league has already begun the process of ren- ovating the gardens, having completed extensive thinning of the boxwood. Over the course of the next two years, plans will be formed and careful renovation efforts will be underway to improve the condition of the rest of the garden areas.
