ABOUT

Make DSM Loud is a volunteer band that performs in and around central Iowa; and with these performances we raise money and awareness for local charities. In 2018, we raised over $2k for "Meals From the Heartland."

In the past we have played several town events, fairs, DSM Farmer's Market and Dam to Dam. We are reaching out to the local sports teams too.

We get together at DMACC in Ankey at least once each month between Feb and Sept.

If you play now, or once played long ago - and would like the opportunity to play again, we are always looking for people to help out local causes. Our band consists of horns and a rhythm section (GBKDP). We currently have 15 members; but am always looking to expand our membership. Guitars and Saxes are in great demand; but will take all sections.

EQUIPMENT

Members typically have their own instruments; but we do have access to some low brass instruments too. Members are provided with music. We only use a PA for speaking between songs; everything else is acoustically as loud as that wind instrument and rhythm section carries.
