We The Least is a band of singer/songwriters from Mendota, IL. Members include Michaela DeLong (vocals/keys), Nathanael DeLong (vocals/bass/guitar), Noah DeLong (drums), and Dell May (vocals/bass/guitar). They released their first album entitled “Screw It Up” in 2019. The album contains Christian, Pop, Country, and even Musical Theater styles throughout, which makes for quite the entertaining car ride playlist. The band hopes to inspire both deeper faith and deeper joy in the lives of their listeners, thus why they choose to write in a variety of musical and lyrical styles. Stay tuned for new music coming in 2021. All Glory Be to Christ. John 3:30.

Story Of The Year: Recently, for a show we played at a school gym, the staff gave us this EPIC intro where we ran through a line of screaming kids with all the lights out, our names were announced over the loudspeaker, and even the Chicago Bulls theme song was blasting in the background - it was pretty legit. Everybody was feeling pumped for the show. But after we each ran through and went over to our instruments, we remembered that they weren’t plugged in or ready to go at all. The music stopped and the lights came up, while the whole audience watched us struggle to get our instruments (and lives) together in what seemed like an eternity. {Some parents in the audience may or may not have used this time to catch up on writing several emails for work.} It took us TWO WHOLE MINUTES before we hit the first chord of the night… Professional? No. Anti-climactic? Yes. Another reason to laugh at ourselves? Absolutely.
