    6/15/2016 - Crankshaft & the Gear Grinders
    Crankshaft has been pounding the pavement since 2008, developing his own "pork neck" style along the way. A sound heavily rooted in rock 'n' roll, blues, country, swing, and surf that "could not have been imagined prior to the early punk scene," as described by Dig In Magazine. Rock solid original lyrics, a dedicated fan base, and his 21st century twist on the American roots is pushing him to the top of the crowded Minneapolis music scene in a hurry. It's becoming clear to many that Crankshaft is "one of the best and most interesting roots, rock and blues acts playing around town these days." - Cities 97

They’re two guitars, stand-up bass and drums, a strong original catalog and a set-list as long as your arm drawn from the swingin’ heyday of American rock-a-billy, r & b, country and blues. They’ve been featured on NPR’s ‘Prairie Home Companion’, have a couple national television appearances under their belt and have graced the radio airwaves of this great state from Duluth to Le Seuer.

    7/27/16 - The Auctioneers
