Past members include Rick Setser, Paul Mannone, Miles Nielsen, Daniel McMahon, Adam Plamann, Noah Harris, and Charles Koltak. The band gets its name from the wandering, fluid nature of the musicians that work with Chisel and Denae.
The band has performed on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," "Conan" and "The Late Show with David Letterman." They've also been a part of several major music festivals, including Bonnaroo in 2011.

The second Mile of Music festival was held Aug. 7-10 in Appleton and again featured performances from Chisel and his band. Also a part of Mile 2 were the Baseball Project, Langhorne Slim, Robert Ellis, Sturgill Simpson and more than 200 other artists.
