Mission River; our "Mission" statement.


We are not just another "bar band." What makes us unique, is that we look to play events to help raise money for local and national charities. We play these events gratutiously. We have helped support Make a Wish Foundation, Guitars for Vets, Special Olympics, ABCD (after breast cancer diagnosis), Mel's Pig Roast,  the Milwaukee Justice Center, among many others. Since the band's inception in 2005, we  have helped raised  well over $600,000 for charitable causes.
