Sammy Miller & the Congregation
Grammy-nominated for Best Instrumental Jazz Album
Friday, February 23, 2018 - 7:00 p.m.
A native of Los Angeles, Sammy Miller has become known for his unique maturity and relentless focus on making music that “feels good” as a drummer, singer and bandleader. Upon completing his Master's at The Juilliard School, Sammy formed his ensemble, Sammy Miller and The Congregation. As a band they are focused on sharing the power of community through their music—joyful jazz.
Ars Nova selected The Congregation for the ‘Makers Lab' in 2017 to produce their original theater jazz show, “Great Awakening.” While independently the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Iron and Wine, and Jason Mraz at venues including The White House, Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together to spread joy throughout the world.
"This is feel-good party jazz, harking back to the '20s and '30s. It's brassy, stomp
your feet and dance music, and it's got the raw, uplifting vibe of a New Orleans street
