The Roller Mills String Band is a high energy string band that features the hammered dulcimer.  We are perfect entertainment for family events, festivals, and concert series.  Our music is mostly traditional American old time music, Irish music, and bluegrass songs.  The Roller Mills String Band (RMSB) is composed of four extremely versatile pickers, each of who has entertained with bluegrass bands for many years.  Members include: Jim Burch, Charlie Malec, Mike Stern, and Dale Palecek.


Dale Palecek is Wisconsin’s premier hammered dulcimer player in the area of playing bluegrass and fiddle tunes on the dulcimer.  He is on the workshop staff at the ODPC festival in Evart, Michigan.  The ODPC Funfest is held every July at Evart, and is the nations largest dulcimer festival.  Dale also has recorded and performs with Squirrels’ Nest Live, a hammered dulcimer ensemble.
