Diane Miller

Director and head promoter

Diane has been involved in the Fargo music scene since 2009 as an active musician, music writer, concertgoer and show promoter. She started from the bottom: First, as a shy, no-name singer-songwriter playing college open mics and blogging on Xanga. Next, as a well-known local musician and newspaper editor-in-chief. And today, as one of the biggest figures in the local music scene.

Her work includes leading hip-hop band D Mills & The Thrills; hosting and promoting sold-out concerts at The Fargo Theatre, Fargo Brewing Company and The Aquarium; serving as editor of High Plains Reader; contributing writing to Minneapolis City Pages; and now, serving as head promoter and talent buyer of The Aquarium, North Dakota’s number one source for live music.

Jack has been booking shows in Fargo-Moorhead since 2006.  In 2011, he opened an all-ages music venue called The New Direction with a group of other promoters in the area. TND became the hub for all-ages music in Fargo and was considered by many bands as the best venue in the Midwest. After TND closed in 2016, Jack joined the team at The Aquarium to continue bringing high-quality artists to the area. In the past 10 years, he has worked with a wide range of artists including Carnifex, Balance and Composure, Obie Trice, Expire, After the Burial and many more.

In addition to booking shows, Jack plays in Baltic to Boardwalk, High Hopes and Too Fast For Frank. He has toured several times to every corner of the country.
