GALLIPOLIS — Thursday evening, in the Pavilion, on the grounds of the French Art Colony, The Deep Creatures will be the featured entertainers.

With a strong live show, refreshing original material and a song selection geared toward pleasing an audience, it’s time to go Deep, with The Deep Creatures.
