The Island - - What To Expect at the Dock

Maize Island plays mostly top-40 radio from 1965-1975,

but you never know what they might cook up.

(From Dylan to Diamond, Buffet to the Beatles and beyond, it's there!)

Expect quality performances from two seasoned players in a 

70's retro style that most age groups enjoy.

Scot and Phil engineer their own studio-quality

rhythm tracks and use high-end Bose audio gear.

Maize Island is family-friendly and available for your event.

Contact them in the form below, and get a speedy response.

The Island - - Pirate's History

In 2017, Scot Warder and Phil Christensen formed "Maize Island." (the name is a nod to Cedar Rapids' riverfront...and corn, of course!)

Before performing, The two settled into a groove

on their favorite songs and liked what happened;

they hope you will, too.

Come catch these seasoned players at a local venue.

Grab a bite, top off your drink and have some fun!

PS: They also have a terrific 5-piece band called Awed Man Out.
