Music, Authors and More...at “Lanesboro Live! Conversation, Comedy & Cool Jams...”

LANESBORO, Minn. – Author interviews, music, and more...Host Damon Prestemon will manage spontaneous comedy while welcoming various guests onstage for the upcoming “Lanesboro Live! Conversation, Comedy & Cool Jams...” show on Sunday, Sept. 1 at 7 pm at the St. Mane Theatre. Guests on the show will include Tom Driscoll and authors from Shipwreckt Books Publishing Company, where ‘Everybody has a story to tell’; house band The CBB Jazz Combo led by Nathan Davidson; and other musicians. Damon may even hop on the keyboard to jam for a number or two.

Last month, Damon invited Peggy Hanson to join him as a regular onstage as the Announcer. “Where else but Lanesboro could I find a sophisticated audience who could appreciate the humor that Damon and I bring to the stage?” says Peggy. She has known and performed alongside Damon in various settings for nearly 20 years here in Lanesboro. This Labor Day weekend show will be the fifth in the brand-new series of six “Lanesboro Live” shows this year.

The ‘Lanesboro Live’ show is the creation of Lanesboro’s talented keyboardist & vocalist Damon Prestemon, who has a reputation for being on-his-toes, and for finding out interesting stuff when interviewing folks onstage. Damon is shaping the show throughout the season in a talk show and guest/audience participation format. “We’re building something great...if you like to laugh, sing, or hear a good story, come on out and join us,” he says. Throughout the year, Damon will welcome a variety of guests onstage. He will talk with authors, poets, comedians, musicians, and more. The house band is the talented CBB Jazz Combo—with Nathan Davidson on saxophone, Jerry Barrett on trumpet, Curt Peterson on piano, Roy Cerling on bass and David Brown on drums. The show is presented in partnership with Lanesboro Arts Center. With a self-proclaimed ‘PG-13’ rating, “Lanesboro Live” will run on six Sunday nights throughout 2013 at the St. Mane Theatre in Lanesboro. Upcoming shows: September 1 and December 8, always at 7 p.m.

Show tickets are $15 / $12 LAC members, available in advance at the Lanesboro Arts Center, 507-467-2446 (open seven days a week), and at the St. Mane Theatre beginning at 6 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 .....
