Steel Drum Player, Mickey Mills is an exciting, energetic, multi-talented entertainer par excellence. He is a vocalist, songwriter and steel drum player, who has been called “the fastest steel drum soloist on Earth”.

Born and raised in Port-of-Spain Trinidad, West Indies, Mickey first started playing the steel drums at the age of 12 as a soloist with the Solo Harmonite Steel Orchestra in Trinidad. 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, has performed at The Village Gate and Madison Square Garden in New York. In addition to his appearances on stage with Mick Jagger, Jimmy Buffet and Kenny Chesney, he performed in the off-Broadway show, The House of Flowers, and in the TV show, Matlock.

Mickey performs at the Raleigh Convention Center, Governor’s Club, Time Warner Cable Pavilion at Walnut Creek and at various country clubs and other venues. He often appears as one of the showcase attractions at local festivals and fairs that want to create a joyful, island theme for their event.

Mickey combines Authentic Trinidadian music with Reggae, Calypso, Soca and other rhythmic grooves. Mickey can perform as a vocalist accompanying himself on a combination of steel drums and synthesizer. He is also available to perform with his four to tenpiece Steel Drum Band, Mickey Mills & Steel. As an approved Artist in the Schools for Wake, Durham and Johnston Counties in NC, Mickey also offers an educational program entitled Steel-A-Rama, which 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 festival, fair or event into a unique and festive event!
