The Minnesota Lakes Maritime Museum and Gardens in Alexandria will present Crankshaft and the Gear Grinders in concert on Friday, August 29. The gates open at 6:30 p.m., with music starting at 7 p.m. The concert is free to attend.
Attendees must be 21 to attend and are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Alex “Crankshaft” Larson was introduced to a wide variety of music as a young man. He was self-employed as a contractor but eventually traded in his hammer to focus on writing and performing music.
Since then, he has been earning a living playing as both a traditional one-man band and as the leader of his trio, Crankshaft and the Gear Grinders.
The band brings rockabilly back to its roots, from Jerry Lee Lewis and forward into the 21st century, with a touch of rock and the blues.
Alexandria Sertoma Club will assist at the concert for its service project.
