Our band gets it's name from the Dakota, a tribe of Siouan people who lived in the N and S Dakota region. No detailed etymology of Dakota is widely accepted, but the most common explanation is that it means “friend” or “ally” in the language of the Sioux. This is what we strive to be to everyone we meet.
We can throw down on some good old rock and roll, classics, pop and Mo-Town.
