The Monroe County Fair will feature two live music events — one new and one returning.
High Mileage, a Viroqua based 1980s and 1990s cover band, will play Friday, July 27 at 6:30 p.m. This will be the band’s second time performing before a Monroe County Fair audience; its first was in 2016.
The band is a five-piece ensemble consisting of Levon Felton on drums, Cory Freehill on lead guitar, Jesse Peckham on keyboard, Ann Christoffer on bass and Tom Lohn on vocals.
Initially the band began when drummer Felton was a teenager, but later disbanded and remained idle for 12 years. Then in 2014 the band re-formed. Felton was the only returning member.
The relaunch came at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Sleepy Hollow Chevrolet Buick GMC car dealership in Viroqua, where Felton is the dealership’s president.
The band has been together since.
Double Take is the other band. It will play on Saturday, July 28 at 8:30 p.m.
