Sammy Miller and The Congregation

“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 parade.” –The San Francisco Weekly

GRAMMY®-nominated drummer Sammy Miller and his five-piece ensemble The Congregation are on a mission to put the generosity and joy back into jazz with a unique style that entertains, enriches, and uplifts. Branded by The SF Weekly as “brassy, stomp your feet and dance music,” don’t miss the feel-good vibe and swinging sound of this stellar group in their first Weinberg appearance!

This engagement of Sammy Miller & the Congregation is made possible through the Jazz Touring Network program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
