LANESBORO, Minn. – The upcoming “Lanesboro Live” show will feature special guests Brad Boyce and author Rick Shefchik, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. Hosted by Damon Prestemon, the monthly show features comedy and spontaneity and music and on-the-spot interviews with a wide range of guests. At last month’s 2014 debut show, the Slick Newhouse Band proved its place onstage with Prestemon, with excellent high-energy music featuring top-notch musicians Jordan Glynn on guitar, Eric Amundrud on drums, Geoff Forscher on bass, Nathan Davidson on sax, and Jerry Barrett on trumpet. These musicians have many years of impressive experience – playing everywhere from Nashville, Tenn. to Rochester, Minn. and Minneapolis.

Brad Boyce is known regionally for his amazing voice and his incredible impersonation of Elvis Presley. His guest appearance on the May 3 “Lanesboro Live” show will feature some fun surprises along those lines. Now, let’s talk about golf! Author Rick Shefchik will share insights about writing his new book From Fields to Fairways (University of Minnesota Press), the first book to thoroughly explore the history of Minnesota’s celebrated golf clubs and courses. We will also look for an appearance from ‘Aunt Evelyn’, who joined us onstage last month and who has recently started her own facebook page (‘Aunt Evelyn’ is a lively character played by Peggy Hanson)

Throughout the season, host Damon Prestemon will manage spontaneous comedy, jump in with the house band on vocals and/or on keyboard, and welcome guests ranging from authors and musicians to ‘Aunt Evelyn’ to reptile experts to political science professors. Presented by Lanesboro Arts Center, the self-rated ‘PG-13’ show will run monthly on the first Saturdays, March-October, with an additional special holiday show in December. Upcoming show dates: May 3, June 7, July 5, August 2, September 6, October 4 and December 6. Show tickets are $15/$12 LAC members, available in advance at Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446, and at the St. Mane Theatre beginning at 6:30 p.m. on show nights.

The St. Mane Theatre is located at 206 Parkway Ave N. in Lanesboro, Minn. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a Minnesota State Arts Board Operating Support grant, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. For more than 30 years, the Lanesboro Arts Center ha .....
