Between the Jim Busta Band’s practices and recording sessions, music always filled the Busta household in small-town Minnesota while Mollie was growing up.  She started singing in the band at age three and joined on piano when she was eight-years-old.  For years to follow, Mollie played several instruments both in the school bands and choirs, as well as in her father’s band.

Growing up, music always filled the Busta household in small-town Minnesota; between the Jim Busta Band’s practices and records being spun. , Mollie arranged songs for the school’s band and choir programs, the Jim Busta Band, and even found time to create her own original compositions. Mollie also served as the student-director for her high school band rehearsals and concerts.

Mollie went on to continue to develop her love of music and received a Bachelor of Arts in Music (trumpet and voice) from Luther College (Decorah, IA).  Mollie’s senior paper was on polka music which gave her a chance to educate her classical music professors and colleagues about the music dear to her heart.  Mollie also received a Master of Arts in Instruction from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota (Winona, MN).  In 2005, Mollie joined Ted Lange’s Bratwurst Boys, based out of Ridgeville Corners, Ohio.  In 2007, 2-time Grammy-nominee Ted and Mollie changed the name to SqueezeBox.  SqueezeBox showcases Mollie’s versatility on several instruments, as well as her talented vocals.
