A native of Los Angeles, Grammy-nominated drummer, singer and bandleader Sammy Miller has become known for his relentless focus on making music that feels good.  He formed his ensemble, The Congregation, after his graduation from Juilliard’s Masters program.  The group’s hilarious jazz opera Great Awakening, excerpts from which were performed at The Willcox in previous Festivals, was selected by Ars Nova (the acclaimed theater incubator in NY) for its Makers Lab in 2017.  Independently, the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Lady Gaga, and Queen Latifah at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl.  However, they have opted to remain together as an ensemble to “spread joy throughout the world.”
