ABOUT THIS EVENT:

Moorhead, Minnesota native Pat Lenertz is a veteran of the North Dakota music scene playing, singing, and fronting several bands including: Heavy is the Head, The Quarterly, The Legionnaires, and Bad Mojo. His triple-threat talents as guitarist, singer, and songwriter have not gone unnoticed.

Diane Miller of the High Plains Reader (HPR)wrote: “Pat Lenertz has remained a leading figure in the Fargo music scene. One of the reasons could be his all-powerful voice, another could be his great ear, another could be his instrumental skills, another could be his talent for songwriting, and yet another could be that Pat is a super down-to-earth, modest team player.”

Drawing on his love for Americana and roots musicians like Willie Nelson, Wilson Pickett, Bill Withers, John Prine, and Bob Dylan, Pat set out to find the perfect band of brothers to help tell his musical stories and everything just fell into place.
