Sammy Miller & the Congregation


A native of Los Angeles, Grammy-nominated drummer Sammy Miller, now based in New York, 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 Juilliard, Miller formed his ensemble, The Congregation. Ars Nova selected The Congregation for the Makers Lab in 2017 to produce their original theater jazz show, "Great Awakening." While independently the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Iron & Wine and Jason Mraz at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together to spread joy throughout the world.
