CONCERT: Sammy Miller & The Congregation

Thursday, February 16, 2023 - 7:30 PM

The seven-piece band is pulling people out of their solitary lives and putting them in the moment with a bracing dose of joyful jazz performed with infectious theatricality. The New York City-based, familial collective has captured its frenetic energy and unflinchingly optimistic songwriting on its debut album, Leaving Egypt. A native of Los Angeles, Juilliard trained-Grammy® nominated drummer Sammy Miller has been hailed as "the perfect player scholar” (The Wall Street Journal).
From Lincoln Center to The White House, The Newport Jazz Festival to Umbria Jazz, with wide-ranging special guests Wynton Marsalis to Bill Irwin (Macthur Genius Winner 1984), The Congregation has brought a new perspective of jazz to a new generation of listeners.  In addition to touring with OneRepublic, Mavis Staples, or The Blind Boys of Alabama, The Congregation has dedicated countless hours to working with over 60,000 students across the world using their groundbreaking PLAYBOOK platform.

This performance features a limited number of 4-seat café tables.
