Be a part of Crankshaft’s final stage appearance (retirement) and escort him into the sunset with a bunch of his other deep blues buddies (Including a fat late night set with Kent Burnside and special guests)!
Kent Burnside is a grandson of the late, blues great RL Burnside. Kent has toured with Jimbo Mathus. Jimbo has a grammy with Buddy Guy. They played all over the United States including opening for Buddy Guy in California. Now Kent has his own 5 piece band – Kent Burnside and the New Generation. The members are: Kent Burnside-Vocals & Guitar, Ren Estrand-Vocals & Guitar, Dan Burnside-Bass, Tom Zick-Drums. They have toured through many states in the U.S. Kent writes most of the music that they play. They also play music from his grandfather, RL Burnside, and his uncle, Duwayne Burnside, along with many other great blues musicians.
Alex “Crankshaft” Larson, is “one of those old fashioned showmen who can actually deliver.” – Hymies Records. His style is heavily rooted in rock ‘n’ roll, blues, country, and soul, that “could not have been imagined prior to the early punk scene,” as described by Dig In Magazine. Crankshaft is “one of the best and most interesting roots, rock and blues acts playing around town these days.“ – Cities 97.
The Flood Brothers
The Flood Brothers are a two man THUMP MACHINE whos infectious melodies and animal rhythms will have your bones shakin’ outta your boots! Heavily influenced by the early Rock ‘N Roll sounds of Memphis and Deep Blues of North Mississippi, Gabe Meyer and Jacob Best add their own bend to the boogie that could only come from the muddy banks of the mighty Mississippi River. Hannibal, MO is where these boys and their music call home.
“The only complaint I ever have about his sets is that they come to an end. Mike (the man and musician) exudes quality.” – Ed Hoffman, owner of Ed’s No-Name Bar, Winona, MN
Mike Munson makes his home in Winona, Minnesota, a town sandwiched between the Mississippi River and the bluffs, with train tracks cutting through its middle. Well known for playing outstanding slide guitar blues, the driving rhythms in his songs are reminiscent of the trains that barrel through his neighborhood. He’s a humble fellow who loves making food and playing guitar and singing.
