Nat Aslaksen and Larry Ginesi have been an instrumental part of the local music scene, staging and producing concerts and events of all types. In November, tragedy struck, as fire ripped through their Eighth Street East warehouse spaces. Aslaksen lost his sound equipment, and Ginesi’s lighting business was destroyed.
