Kick off the second annual Charlotte Jazz Festival on a truly righteous note with Sammy Miller and the Congregation. Special guest Wynton Marsalis will join the band for several selections. Your ticket delivers an evening of what the group calls “joyful jazz” plus a delicious hors d’oeuvres buffet (cash bar) and a chance to meet and mingle with others who share your jazz passion. The stars of the night, Sammy Miller and The Congregation, are on a mission to put the generosity back into jazz and bring art back to the people. They aim to entertain, but most of all to uplift their audiences. A native of Los Angeles and a Julliard graduate, Miller is known for his relentless focus on making music that feels good and sharing the power of community through music. Miller and the Congregation, as well as individual band members, have performed and recorded with many notable artists including O.A.R., Joshua Redman, Lee Fields, Jason Moran and Wynton Marsalis.
