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 Julliard 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. While independently the band members have performed/recorded with notable artist including Wynton Marsalis, O.A.R, Iron and Wine, and Lee Fields at venues including The White House, Lincoln Center, and the Hollywood Bowl, Sammy Miller and The Congregation has opted to stick together and create globally conscious music with the intention to spread joy throughout the world.
“We play joyful jazz- music that feels good. It is a style that entertains, enriches, but most of all uplifts.”
Band Members: Sammy Miller, Alphonso Horne, Ben Flocks, Sam Crittenden, David Linard

“Sammy Miller and the Congregation is what happens when seasoned musicians, on horns, bass, piano and drums really let go. This is a band that can not only play their asses off, but makes you smile, dance and unconsciously nod to the rhythms at the same time your brain is saying “Wow- that’s what I really wanted to hear all these years!” What makes this band cook is rare: playing the unexpected in a way that takes you back to what the original sound and shape of the instruments can be—deep, full of soul and warmth and no small amount of humor.” – The Vinyl Press
