At Rustic Oaks you'll enjoy 40 serene acres of wildflowers, ponds, rock gardens, and a wealth of nature overlooking the Red River!   The Rustic Oaks barn is the heart of many of our special events and gatherings & is the perfect mix of rustic & modern: French doors open to beautiful wood floors, chandeliers, lanterns, and the original vaulted timber of the hayloft.  Our ADA compliant event center is open year-round, complete with heat & AC, our on-site bar, a sound system, modern bathrooms, and lighting options!  To the north, the barn opens to a beautiful two-story 4-season porch, complete with fire places, wood flooring, and sky lights!


The Thrills' musical backgrounds are rooted in everything from jazz to alternative-rock, psychedelic-rock, bluegrass, Americana to reggae. And Miller's bold/energetic rap voice is reflective of her wide range of interests, musical and non-musical, and personality. Perhaps the band's most coherent element is their tightly wound rhythmic grooves (... the hip hop) which the band works so intently to create.

D Mills & The Thrills' original songs are a collaborative effort between all members of the band.  Band leader/emcee Diane Miller writes the lyrics and chorus melodies on a keyboard; then the band members develop the melodic, rhythmic and structural concepts during rehearsals.

Not surprisingly, D Mills & The Thrills' sound is dynamic and different. After all, they are a 7-piece hip-hop act with two female leads ... and they're from Fargo, an unlikely location to spot a live, homegrown hip-hop-band of any sort. 

D Mills & The Thrills have shared the stage with Minneapolis heavy-hitters such as Dessa, Caroline Smith, Ryan Young (Trampled By Turtles), Sean McPherson (Heiruspecs and 89.3 The Current), Todd Clouser and Carnage the Executioner. 

The Thrills are currently working on their first full-length record!
