Vita's Wildly Delicious
First performance on Lopez!

Sammy Miller and The Congregation are on a mission to put the generosity back into jazz and bring art back to the people. A native of Los Angeles, Juilliard trained-Grammy® nominated drummer Sammy Miller has been hailed as "the perfect player scholar” (The Wall Street Journal). He has spent the last decade electrifying audiences with his joyful-jazz band, The Congregation. From Lincoln Center to The White House, The Newport Jazz Festival to Umbria Jazz, with wide-ranging special guests like Wynton Marsalis and Bill Irwin (MacArthur Genius Winner 1984), The Congregation has brought an 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 dedicates countless hours to working with over 60,000 students across the world using their e-learning PLAYBOOK platform.
