‘Swingsation’ benefit gala to feature Prudence Johnson and the Swingsation Orchestra


Fri, Oct 11th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Prudence Johnson and the Swingsation Orchestra will wow attendees at this year’s annual gala fundraiser, supporting year-round arts programming of Lanesboro Arts Center. Swingsation will also feature unique auction items, a gourmet dinner prepared by internationally acclaimed chef Peter D’Souza, a cash bar and KTTC Television personalities Jess Abrahamson and Tom Overlie. The event will be held Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the Lanesboro Community Center (202 Parkway Ave S in Lanesboro, Minnesota). At $60 per person, tickets are sold in advance from Lanesboro Arts Center.

Always a spectacular event, Swingsation this year will bring internationally acclaimed singer Prudence Johnson back to Lanesboro. A frequent guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, Prudence Johnson performed ‘A Girl Named Vincent’ to a full house at Lanesboro’s St. Mane Theatre in June, and she and her band rocked the dance floor at last year’s Swingsation event. Her 25-year career in music has taken Prudence Johnson from nightclubs and honky-tonks to Carnegie Hall, from the theater stage to the Silver Screen (Robert Redford’s A River Runs Through It), from the Midwest to the Middle East. At Swingsation, she will perform with her ‘Swingsation Orchestra,’ a hand-picked group of excellent musicians.

Silent, live, and sealed bid auction items will include artwork like paintings, stained glass, a life-size ceramic sculpture of a woman by Linda Lewis, handmade jewelry, a leather purse by Ilse Heider, and sculpture; special events like a Private Dinner Party by Gordy & Val at the Lanesboro Diner, 18 Holes at Somerby Golf in Byron, a Spanish Gourmet Dinner by David & Linda Tacke, a signed photograph by Vikings Wide Receiver Jerome Simpson; and other fantastic items. Real-life Lanesboro Sales Commission auctioneer Mert Boyum will work the live auction, along with KTTC Television news personalities Jess Abrahamson and Tom Overlie, who will serve as emcees throughout the evening. The event begins at 6 p.m. with a cash bar, music by Prudence & the orchestra, appetizers, and the sealed bid and silent auctions.

Dinner will be served at 7:15 p.m., a three-course gourmet meal prepared by internationally acclaimed chef and professor of culinary art Peter D’Souza. The live auction will begin at 8:15 p.m. with one-of-a-kind art and other unique items, followed by dancing to the music of Prudence Johnson and the Swingsation Or .....
