Jimiller's Profile

About me:The JiMiller Band is a four member band that for the last 13 years has played some of the best new music in the Midwest, with Jim's resonating vocals and jazz-infused lead guitar, Dave Blackerby on bass, Steve "Nev" Scheff onkeyboards and Brian "Bagel" Golenberg on drums.
The JiMiller Band's style is as varied as their influences; JiMiller "blends together blues, country, Cajun, old rock 'n' roll, jazz and bluegrass into a musical Americana that is both fresh and timeless" in their everlasting sets. However, the band is best known for its freeform improvisation rock that was made famous by The Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers.Their lead man Jim Miller has been playing music for most of his life and was the former frontman of the band Oroboros, orchestrating their 18-year odyssey on the road, opening for the 1994 H.O.R.D.E. Festival, the 1996 Further Festival, The Kinks, Hot Tuna, Santana, Richard Thompson, Robert Hunter and members of the Grateful Dead just to name a few.

He has also had the privilege of sharing the stage and jamming with Blues Traveler, Sheryl Crow, The Allman Brothers, Hot Tuna and the legendary John Cipollina of Quicksilver Messenger Service.

In 1994 Jim opened for Phish at the Agora. The JiMiller Band has played the 10,000 Lakes Festival with String Cheese, and Galactic. They opened for Bruce Hornsby, and during the Summer 2005 & 2006 they opened for Little Feat at Cleveland's House of Blues. They also opened for Rusted Root on Memorial Day weekend 2007, at Tower City Amphitheater and again to a sold out crowd on NYE 2007 at House of Blues, Cleveland.

The JiMiller Band truly shines at music festivals. Over the summer of 2009-2011, the band kicked off the season at Nelson Ledges,for Early bird Fest. In 2009 the band opened for Ralph Stanley. On Labor Day 2010 the band opened for the Rhythm Devils with Mickey Hart and Bill Kruetzman from The Dead.Jim loves music festivals so much, he even throws his own each summer at Nelson Ledges, called Lazy Daisy and again in the fall with DeadFall, focusing on the music of The Grateful Dead all weekend.The band also played the Grateful Garcia Gathering at Legend Valley opening for Boombox before heading
to Myrtle Beach, SC to take part in Jerry Fest.
