North Idaho’s Mill River Band will return to the Summer Sunset Concert Series Friday, and they plan to bring their own take on classic hits to the stage.

Formerly known as Roundabout, the Mill River Band consists of vocalist/guitarist Vince Peak, bassist Bob Darilek, drummer Jim Henderson and saxophone player Dewey Dorough.

Dorough formerly played with the Oak Ridge Boys for 16 years and the Charlie Daniels Band for three years. He is credited with playing for four different presidents at the White House over his career.

Henderson said the current line up has been together for more than three years and their influences include the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Beach Boys and many more.

“We cover a variety of 50’s & 60’s artists, some of which are, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Elvis, The Turtles, Sam Cooke, Del Shannon, Johnny Rivers, Dion, Roy Orbison and many others,” Henderson said. “It’s something for everyone, we hope.”

Henderson said he and the band look forward to another performance in St. Maries as last year’s crowd was “energetic, appreciative, and courteous and they sing and dance making our time there an absolute blast.”

The Mills River Band will hit the stage at 6 p.m., Friday, July 23 at the St. Maries Amphitheater.
