Contact: Gerry Reilly, 812.265.3526, greilly@indianamuseum.org

MADISON, Ind. – The Lick Creek Band of Paoli, Ind., will perform as part of Lanier Mansion’s Music at the Mansion concert series on Saturday, Aug. 12 at 7 p.m. Blending guitar and bass, the Lick Creek Band affectionately renders rock, pop, jazz and original music into their back porch tuneful stylings.

“Our performances are like a big party,” said band member Alice Wootton.  “Almost all of the songs we perform, such as Mustang Sally, Route 66, Summertime, Knocking on Heaven’s Door, Brown Eyed Girl, Hotel California and many others, will be familiar to almost everyone in the audience.”

The concert is free and open to the public. Donations received at the concert will help fund other programs and restoration efforts at the Lanier Mansion State Historic Site. The rain location for the concert will be the Brown Gym, located 100 Broadway St. in Madison, Ind.

The local jazz group Zercussion will perform the last concert in the series on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m.

This concert series is made possible, in part, with support from the Indiana Arts Commission and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.  Additional sponsors are the Madison Chautauqua Festival of Art, River Terrace Health Campus and Thornton Terrace Health Campus.

For more information, please contact Gerry Reilly, Lanier Mansion State Historic Site manager, at 812.273.0556 or greilly@indianamusuem.org.
