The Daisy Dillman Band holds a well deserved place in Minnesota music history. With a small handful of others, they dominated the music scene in the late 70's - and more than most, they went on to play in the majors with two nationally released, charting records. Along the way, they earned a place in the hearts of loyal audiences across Minnesota and the entire country. They did it by bringing everything they had... to countless nights of unforgettable music.
