MILLER AND THE OTHER SINNERS


Western New York based but nationally touring southern soul artist, David Michael Miller, and a 4 piece version of his band, Miller and The Other Sinners, is bringing their stirring blend of roots music to Abilene for a month long series of residency shows with a mission.  Moved by an article published on WHEC.com ranking Buffalo and Rochester in the top 3 cities in America where children suffer in poverty, Miller and The Other Sinners will be doing weekly shows to help raise awareness to this problem.  They hope to connect people who desire to make a change with agencies and opportunities to put that desire into action through the publicity of these shows.  Several of the shows will be streamed per month and videos documenting each week alongside of sponsors that are helping to make it all happen.  

Vintage Guitar Magazine January 2016 says:

"This makes it two in a row for David Michael Miller. His Poisons Sipped was one of last year’s surprise albums, introducing us to a songwriter, guitarist, and singer who is the whole package. Same Soil builds on that with its clear understanding of the blues, soul, and everything in between. Throughout it all, Miller’s guitar play-ing is more than solid, supplying the mojo for most of the songs. His deep growl is fiercely soulful and he soars into upper registers, calling to mind the late Chris Whitley at his finest. While working in what could loosely be called the blues, Miller covers a lot of ground. “All The Blues To You” is swampy funk. “Just Ride” shows off his patience in letting the groove control things. He and his band’s willingness to let the song grow, along with the incredible use of dynam-ics, is one of many aspects that make his music some of the best out there today. Miller handles all the guitar parts perfectly. Whether swinging slide work or on-the-money rhythm, it all fits. – John Heidt"

Delivering groove and grit, David Michael Miller leads a talented group of musicians known as Miller and the Other Sinners. This band explodes with a full spectrum of southern soul that reaches diverse indy rock, blues, soul and southern rock fans alike. The release of two albums, "Poisons Sipped" (2014) featuring Rochester’s own Chuck, Darick and Carlton Campbell of the Campbell Brothers (now honored in the Smithsonian) and "Same Soil" (2015), David’s music has received international attention and radio play making its way to #3 on the Roots Music Report. 

Rising through the roots music scene, Miller’s Sinners are packed with talent including Jay Moynihan (10 year veteran saxman for Buddy Guy) and an incredibly talented rhythm section hailing from Buffalo, NY. Miller and the Other Sinners are no strangers to festivals and large concert venues and will be headlining the Corn Hill Music Festival in 2017 as well a featured slot at the Fairport Music Festival.

“ROCKABILLY RUMBLE!!”

Featuring Canada’s most insanest, undeadest and bestest psychobilly horro-punks

THE BRAINS


The Brains has never been a band to follow the rules…

in fact they’ve made it a point to utterly and completely destroy every single one of them

with each album they release and every show they play.

Not ones to be pinned down by genre labels, The Brains seamlessly blend rockabilly,

horror, punk, new-wave, metal and sexed-up Latin swagger to create

a signature sound that is beyond comparison.

“The Brains are like the Stray Cats except faster, louder and paler.”- The Coast

www.thebrainsmtl.com

with Las Vegas’ raunchiest and dirtiest rockers,

THE DELTA BOMBERS


The Delta Bombers have smashed stages all over the world since 2008.

Started by four teenagers in Las Vegas, they’re driven by a hybrid of 50’s rock ‘n’ roll

fused with blues and the most exciting elements of rockabilly.

And opening the show…Rochester’s own psychobilly band,

Acclaimed Singer-Songwriter

JOAN SHELLEY


Joan Shelley quickly followed her acclaimed 2014 album “Electric Ursa” with “Over and Even,” a quieter, more contemplative set recorded in her home state of Kentucky. It was an album of the year at NPR Music and in the Los Angeles Times, and was given 4 stars in Rolling Stone, who called it “a masterfully turned set of folk reflections.” Shelley made the record with guitarist Nathan Salsburg, recording the bulk of the tracks over just two days. She has since toured the US and Europe, and will release a new album in 2017. Her latest release is the 2 song 7” single “Cost of the Cold” b/w “Here and Whole.”

“It’s the shameless good times and guitar forward songwriting of bands like the Georgia Satellites

with a mix of jam, glam, and honky-tonk to round out the sound.” Duane Doobie

STAY THE PLOW


Original Americana, Country & Roots music from the folks who brought you DANG!

Singer Nelle Porter-Jones has assembled a solid band to back her up. Mining modern American musical style. Country, folk and roots, for sure. They also indulge in early jazz, bluegrass and swing (and maybe some rock). It’s not like the Americana Police are going to issue a summons for stylistic abuse!

Nelle and her bandmates connect, they are easy and fun. Setting each song up with personal asides and inside jokes that everyone in the room is in on. They also dig deep into the current and past American and country songbook, covers of Cash, Patsy, Emmylou, Gram Parsons as well as well-loved traditional pieces in their unique style.
