Musician coming back to old stomping grounds

Brandon, FL -- For several years, Marion Gwizdala was a regular at Brandon’s Fox & Hounds, both as an entertainer and a patron.

Performing under the stage name “Marion & Martin”, the bearded, longhaired, redheaded tenor dressed in his trademark Hawaiian shirts, his Martin guitar, and his guide dog, Louiza, took the stage at the Fox & Hounds every Friday night during happy hour.

Friday nights became “Hawaiian Shirt night” and everyone seemed to compete to see who had the brightest garment!

Marion’s hair is now a little less red and a little shorter, and his faithful Louiza has crossed the Rainbow Bridge, but his Hawaiian shirts are still the brightest and his Martin guitar is still in tune! Marion & Martin will return to the quaint stage of the Fox & Hounds for two nights in August - a homecoming, of sorts!
