Bands and Artists from Des Moines
Featured Band: The Nadas
The Nadas are an independent folk rock band from Des Moines, formed in 1995 by vocalists and guitarists Mike Butterworth and Jason Walsmith. Springing up in the local college music scene, they quickly established a very loyal following with their catchy, upbeat folk sound and feel-good atmosphere. Despite never having a commercial hit during their time, the band has been called "The Best College Band You've Never Heard Of" by Playboy Magazine, and opened for Bon Jovi in 2006. To this day they have released eight studio albums, and continue to draw crowds of all ages. For more information on tour dates and music, visit their website here!
