Sammy Miller and The Congregation rocked Charlotte audiences last year and they’re back for more in 2017. The band is a mission to put the generosity back into jazz and bring art back to the people. They aim to entertain, but most of all to uplift their audiences.
A native of Los Angeles and a Juilliard graduate, Miller is known for his relentless focus on making music that feels good and sharing the power of community through music. Miller and the Congregation, as well as individual band members, have performed and recorded with many notable artists including O.A.R., Joshua Redman, Lee Fields, Jason Moran and Wynton Marsalis, who will be joining them for this special concert in Charlotte. The Mint Museum Uptown makes the list of some of America’s most celebrated venues that have hosted the band’s performances, including Lincoln Center, the Hollywood Bowl and the White House.
