Guitarist/songwriter Miles Nielsen of H.M.S. will perform an acoustic show Sunday, Nov. 19, at the Irish Rose Saloon in Rockford.

Composed of Nielsen, Mark Muraski, Tony Scarpaci, Jim Westin and Tony Berkman, H.M.S. has sold out two shows at Rockford’s New American Theater. The band is also scheduled to play NAT on New Year’s Eve.
