happy hour live music with Scottie Miller

Scottie Miller, (also known as Scottie “Bones” Miller) is an American pianist and singer-songwriter born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His musical style is a combination of blues, soul, funk and jazz.  “Sounds like Dr. John meets The Band at Bruce Springsteen’s house.  Highly recommended.”  Tom Hyslop - Blues Revue Magazine.  (Quite the comparison, and he backs it up with high energy performance, creative song writing, dramatic lyrics and impeccable piano playing.)

He performs worldwide as a solo-artist, or with the incredibly funky “SMB” (Scottie Miller Band),  (which features drummer Mark O’Day, guitarist Joe Cruz, and bassist Kevin Rowe).

Recent theater performances find Scottie adding string quartet to the mix, further breaking the boundaries of style and genre.  This ”blues-pianist” shows again and again how versatile his music can be with blues, jazz, classical, funk and soul influences that blend together seamlessly.

Scottie is also the touring keyboardist for 2010 Grammy nominee and multi-BMA recipient Ruthie Foster & The Family Band.  He appears on her "Live At Antone's"-Ruthie Foster Family Band.  “DVD Of The Year” (2012 Blues Music Awards (BMA’s)).
