The Mill Street Band was formed in the fall of 2008. Currently the Mill Street Band is a cover band playing songs from the 70's through todays top hits, but is also working on some original material. We are comprised of five musicians from the Des Moines, Iowa area. Each member of the band is also involved in a 50's and 60's band in the north Iowa area. We decided to get together to play a little more often and ended up forming the Mill Street Band. All the members of the band lived in Lake Mills, Iowa at one point and decided it would be fitting to name the band with resemblance to Lake Mills. The lead guitar player and singer, Nate, grew up on the street called Mill Street, so we thought it would be fitting to name the group Mill Street Band. Three members of the band have music degrees, and all have degrees in the education field.
Our mission is to perform for those who want to have a good time and enjoy some of their favorite songs and bands over the past 5 decades. We love playing and want our listeners to enjoy every moment of our performances. It is almost garunteed that we will play at least one song that will either make people remember the past, dance along, or sing along. The most important thing is that our audience members have fun and enjoy our music.
