Mighty Mississippi is an acoustic Blues trio, seeking to perpetuate country Blues as it was once played on the porches and in the rural saloons of the South in the 1930's and 1940's. In addition, Mighty Mississippi's repertoire follows the musical migration northward during that era, and includes acoustic versions of electric Blues that evolved in the nightclubs and bars of Memphis and Chicago in the 1940's and 1950's. Songs from the modern era, as well as original compositions, are also part of Mighty Mississippi's dedication to preserving and promoting acoustic American folk music rooted in the Blues.

Home to Mighty Mississippi is San Mateo County, along the San Francisco Bay peninsula. Alan Adelman and Allen Capeloto first met there in April of 2007, and began building Mighty Mississippi from their mutual love of the Blues. Russell Kiel joined the band in May of 2008. Together, these three musicians have combined many years of experience in the study and performance of the genre.
