Meet MAX

A North Dakota kid, born and raised, Max is something he likes to call “a real-life North Dakota artist, writer and musician.” For over a decade Max Patzner has traveled the country playing original, homegrown NoDak tunes with his musical venture – folk / rock band – Wild Hands. The band has released five studio albums and has another collection of songs on the way. Max studied art in the Magic City of Minot and creates naive, whimsical illustrations, gig posters and paintings. AND now – he has thrown all his artistic and musical talents into a longing dream of his – writing, illustrating and creating music for his very own kid’s books.

Max Patzner, singer, artist, and author from Minot, North Dakota brings free kids entertainment to Medora, North Dakota
