Jake Larson on keys and vocals and Leon on guitar and vocals. We go by Jake and Lee. Leon Laudenbach is a singer song writer from St. Cloud Minnesota who has been performing his original compositions for the past 30 years, on stages throughout the upper Midwest. In 2010 Leon and Rex Veeder staged The Headwater Blues Opry at the Pioneer Place theater using Leon's compositions to enthusiastic crowds.
And so the sound of the Derelicts was born; blues from the delta, Texas, Chicago and beyond, the early jazz of New Orleans, the sound of the acoustic guitar, and of course, the hub cap. That sound comes alive every night when the Derelict Trio plays. Accentuated by “Dirty D” Olson’s trumpet and sax, Mark Downing’s harmonicas and Shagawa Shorty's steel resonator guitar this music will make you feel like cakewalking into the street, past the crossroads and all the way into town.
