About the Artist

Born and raised Port-of-Spain Trinidad, West Indies, MICKEY MILLS first started playing the steel drums at the age of 12 as a soloist with the Solo Harmonite Steel Orchestra. In 1970 he moved to New York where he worked with artists such as Mick Jagger, Ralph McDonald, The Mighty Sparrow, Johnny Mathis and Lord Kitchener. Mickey, who cites Bob Marley as one of his major influences, is no stranger to such well known New York establishments as The Village Gate and Madison Square Garden.  
 
Now living in Carrboro, North Carolina, Mickey continues his performances schedule and also leads an educational program entitled Steel-A-Rama, which has been presented in several school systems on the East Coast. This program is loved by children and highly regarded by scholars as a great exposure to the culture surrounding the Trinidadian steel drums.
 
Whether performing solo, duo or with his full band, Steel, Mickey Mills delivers the true flavor and vibe of island rhythms, which turn any summer party, clam bake, wedding or corporate event into a unique and festive event!
