The Millions photo27

 

The Millions (formed in 1989) are one of the most unique bands to ever come out of the mid-western United States.

 

The group was formed out of the ashes of two popular groups from Lincoln, Nebraska; For Against (Harry Dingman III and Greg Hill) and New Brass Guns (Lori Allison and Marty Amsler). The Millions opened for the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and House Of Love and toured Europe with Sheryl Crow. The band routinely packed halls from Chicago to Las Vegas and enjoyed legendary status at clubs in Lincoln (most notably Duffy's Tavern).

 

The Millions will play Saturday, Dec. 1 2012 at The Bourbon Theater in Lincoln, Nebraska. Lori Allison, Harry Dingman III, Marty Amsler and drummer Brandon McKenzie of the band ROck ROse have been rehearsing regularly for the show. Original Millions drummer Greg Hill has retired from the music business.

 

The band is playing this one time only show to celebrate the release of "Poison Fish", a 21 song CD of rare and unreleased recordings from the earliest days of the band.

 

More information about "Poison Fish" and how to get advance tickets for the show is coming soon!
