    Oui Bis Summer Solstice PerformanceLeon Peek speaks: “Oui Bis plays at Banter Denton this Friday 6 to 8 p.m. Summer is a cummin’ in, as some chauserhead said. You need to celebrate the new season or you will be cursed by the little people. Having a drink at home is not a celebration. Banter serves beer, mead, grub, and coffee. Come and have a stout or two. Hear Oui Bis‘ alt-folk-fusion. Be there or be square.”
