Her band continues to impress audiences everywhere with a wide variety of music that keeps her audiences dancing and wanting more.

J.Miller Band — J.Miller is staking his claim! Miller will captivate you with his Acoustic Set, or quickly get you up on your feet with one of the many formations of The J.Miller Band. Miller’s songwriting is very genuine. He grew up in Northwest Indiana among the smokestacks of “Steel Mill Country” and those midwestern small town experiences shine through in his songwriting. His voice runs like an old small block engine, steady and smooth.

The BUS — Joe Uveges, KJ Braithwaite, and Jim Sokol have the kind of vocal blend that stops a crowd in mid murmur. Their covers of CSN are the stuff of local legend. KJ Braithwaite, a rock and rockabilly guitar wizard, feels guitar in the same way as Eric Clapton,  less is more, and space speaks. With numerous years and 3 albums under his belt, he is also one of the best songwriters in town. Jim Sokol has been part of 4 albums with Joe Uveges including the critically acclaimed “Up Please,” a 2008 release that also features Phil Volan.  His voice could be Irish Tenor, it could be Sting, it could be David Grey, it both screams and whispers. A historic performance for a beer festival to be sure.

Achievements
5 Gazette “Best Of” awards including 2011 and 2012 “Best Solo Musician” awards

8 albums released, the latest recorded in Nashville with Stephanie Pauline (When the Smoke Clears).
