Lanesboro, Minn. – Damon Prestemon’s upcoming “Lanesboro Live” show will feature Chef Johnny Mango -- of catering fame in Rochester, Minn., and University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse Political Science Professor -- and frequent Wisconsin Public Radio contributor -- Tim Dale. Damon’s own house band, the Slick Newhouse Band, will be rocking some favorite tunes, rumored to include “Diggin on James Brown” (Tower of Power), “Red Barchetta” (Rush), “Black Friday” (Steely Dan), “I Feel Good” (James Brown), and “Say Something” (A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera). The show is on Saturday, August 2, 2014, 7:30 p.m. at the St. Mane Theatre. The Slick Newhouse Band is always on stage, with excellent high-energy music featuring top-notch musicians Stela Burdt on back-up vocals, Nathan Davidson on saxophone, Jerry Barrett on trumpet, Eric Amundrud on drums, Geoff Forscher on bass, and Kevin Carey on guitar. Damon jumps in on the keyboard when he’s not busy ripping up the dance floor in front of the band! This month’s show is held during Lanesboro’s Buffalo Bill Days weekend; for more information on Buffalo Bill Days activities, contact http://www.lanesboro-mn.gov/site/lanesboro-boards-buffalo-bill-days-schedule.php

The “Lanesboro Live” features show host & creator Damon Prestemon’s comedy and spontaneity, music and dancing, and on-the-spot interviews with a wide range of guests...Johnny Mango and Tim Dale are certainly known to hold their own on stage as well, which should make for a fun show on August 2. Each month throughout the season (April-Oct & Dec), host Damon Prestemon manages spontaneous comedy, jumps in with the house band on vocals and/or on keyboard, and welcomes guests ranging from authors and musicians to ‘Aunt Evelyn’ to reptile experts to political science professors.
