If you need anymore evidence of just how easily musical talent can pass from one generation to the next, then San Juan Community Theatre is where you want to be, Thursday, July 12.

The mother and son duo of Gretchen Gubleman and Beau Borrero are the featured performers in the second installment of the theatre’s Night Music Summer Concert Series. Doors open at 7 p.m. for “social hour”, featuring chocolate desserts, beer and wine, and the music begins at 8 p.m.

Gubelman and Borrero have sang together since the young lad was a baby, and the two say that forming a band seemed only natural. Wielding a pair of acoustic guitars, the duo pride themselves on a brand of music that’s “folk-funk-funny” and “heartfelt, hilarious and harmonious.”

But there’s still more to the story about art and generations in the backdrop of Thursday’s performance. The duo will be performing in the Gubelman Theatre, named after Gretchen Gubelman’s parents, whom mother and son each credit as their earliest musical inspirations.

The theatre’s Thursday Night Music Summer Concert series runs through Aug. 9, and will showcase a variety of local musicians. Seating is limited to 50; tickets are $10.

The SJCT Box Office is open Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and one hour before any performance. For more information, 360-378-3210, or www.sjctheatre.org.
