“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 parade.” SF Weekly

Drummer Sammy Miller makes no bones about it. He wants to bring jazz to the people and he’s found true believers in the young members of his six-piece Congregation. Evangelists of swing, they’ve earned an avid New York City following by drawing on a century of American songs, inviting listeners in with familiar melodies and rollicking rhythms. Miller, a Grammy-nominated, Juilliard-trained, Los Angeles native has become known for his relentless focus on making music that feels good. As a band, The Congregation shares the power of community through their globally conscious music – joyful jazz – spreading joy throughout the world.
