In 2018, Mick Sterling is celebrating his 38th year in the music business. His career, like any musician doing it as long as he has, has experienced many changes, highlights, low-lights and everything in between. What may be of interest to all of you is that even after all of this time, Sterling is finding new musical and theatrical challenges and more excited about being in the music business than ever before.
Within those 37 years, Sterling has transformed himself from a young and energetic lead singer of throw-together bands in to one of the most recognized names in the Twin Cities music scene. His band he led for 17 years and recently inducted in to the Mid-West Music Hall of Fame, MICK STERLING AND THE STUD BROTHERS, falls in the category of the other legendary Twin Cities Soul and R&B bands such as Doug Maynard, Willie and the Bees, Lamont Cranston and others. The band ended regular performances in 2005, but have performed periodic shows at their home base of BUNKERS MUSIC BAR AND GRILL since 2011 to rave reviews by huge crowds. See the (4) shows on the PERFORMANCE schedule of this incredible band.
Sterling is also proud of the Corporate and Private Event project called A BAND CALLED SOUL, www.abandcalledsoul.com. This band features some of the top musicians and singers in the Twin Cities area. It was specifically formed to provide top entertainment for companies in need of music for their events and for families that need a memorable and terrific night of music for their loved ones.
As a producer of many shows, Mick Sterling’s event production company MICK STERLING PRESENTS has been proud to produce a large array of unique and diverse theatrical shows that feature some of the legendary names and songs of multiple genres. All of these large bands (minimum ten members per band) feature some of the top musicians in the Twin Cities.

Guitar, fiddle, ukulele, percussion, and bass are combined with tight three part harmony to form a sound that is uniquely Broken Fiddle!
