The Delmarvalous Dolls will perform music from the 1940s at The Island Theater in Chincoteague, VA on Saturday, March 28 at 7:30 pm.
The show features songs from The Andrews Sisters as well as Big Band Swing for dancing. Three of the area’s finest Jazz singers will combine their remarkable talents for this show: Pam Miller, Rhonda Apple & Ev Cook.
They’ll be accompanied by Wilmington native David Zipse on the piano. He is a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Shenandoah Conservatory of Music. David performed on the road for years, working with many bands, and was musical director for more than 70 shows. He starred in “Gershwin, By George” at the Riverfront Arts Center in Wilmington, where he won rave reviews for his rousing rendition of “Rhapsody in Blue”.
Rounding out the band will be Dave Gladding on drums, and Jim Miller on trumpet.

Larry Buck is a Blues singer from New Orleans. He plays piano with one hand and bass with the other. His smoky voice will remind you of Louie Armstrong. Especially on his New Orleans Medley which includes "What a Wonderful World" and "When the Saints go Marching in".
Dave Gladding is a drum teacher and has played in multiple bands including "The Larks" and "Dark Gold Jazz". The trio is performing a mix of Blues, and classic R&B (Stevie Wonder, Aretha, Beatles, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, Ray Charles) with Larry and Pam switching off on leads and harmonies.

Thanks to my friend Cheryl Nemazie for taking the photos (below) with my camera Friday night. She's amazing! And big thanks to the awesome Felix Contreras for joining us on percussion after he finished his early show with Van Williamson.
Bonus: check out this random video clip of an after-party in our hotel lobby in the wee hours of Sunday morning with Bob Diener on the piano. I couldn't resist jumping in on a few tunes as well. So much FUN!

I've had the pleasure of providing backing vocals for Jay Hoad while he's been on his USA tour this summer. Here we are in performance at the Bottle & Cork in Delaware last week, supporting The Original Wailers!
Click here or on the above photo to see more pictures from our concert.
Below is a video excerpt of Jay's new composition "Australia", which we performed that night. Look for it on Jay's upcoming CD release.

This project features my personal picks of both previously released as well as new unreleased material I've recorded over the past 15 years or so of my professional career. It's a nice mix of jazz, pop and Broadway. Many of the tracks were digitally remastered for this CD and the sound quality is great!
This one is not yet available for web purchase but if you're interested I'll have them with me at my shows, or send me an email to the address on the CD and I'll see about hooking you up. Ciao!

(not necessarily a bad thing):
Here I am with Jim (and other unseen friends) having dinner in Washington D.C. prior to enjoying a fantastic performance by John Pizzarelli and his larger band at the Kennedy Center. The show was broadcast by NPR as part on their annual New Year's Eve "Toast of the Nation" event. You can click here to listen to the entire concert (recommended!).
Afterward we went backstage and hung out with the fabulous musicians, including their arranger Don Sebeskey (genius). Jim also made acquaintances with Tony Kadleck. Then it was up to the Kennedy Center foyer to ring in the New Year with more music and champagne toasts.

If you look carefully through the windows you can see the crazy nor'easter that was going on that weekend! Thanks again to all my band mates for their fantastic musicianship and to all of you who braved the weather and came out to be part of the festival.

If you're in the area come out some Sunday to Trinity United Methodist Church in Salisbury and hear the rest of this fantastic choir. We recently won top honors among Eastern Shore chorales at a recent cavalcade of choirs competition.
Ciao for now!

The Pam Miller Band will be back for performances at the Cultured Pearl on October 16 and 17 with three shows both nights starting at 7pm and continuing through the evening, including a late walk-in show at 11pm.
This year we've assembled a truly world class band just for the festival. And every show will be unique!
On guitar we're pleased to welcome back Pete Bozick. Pete has several of his own CDs out and is a solid, in demand performer that brings a hip funk-rock influence to our music.
New this year we're privileged to have Dennis Michaels on bass. Dennis has toured the U.S. performing with too many top names to list here.
By now you know our other core members Dean Haemel (drums) and Jim Miller (trumpet and flugelhorn).
Plus we'll also have Joe Genovese from Washington DC (tenor sax) as our special recurring guest.
Please keep us in your schedule as you plan your festival entertainment choices for this fantastic weekend of live music!

Yes, that's me but the photo wasn't taken at a Pam Miller Band show. Earlier this year I got to serve as stage manager for the live production of "Radio From Downtown" held at the Avalon Theatre. Here I am assisting Van Williamson, the wild and crazy host and director of RFD...
Their next show will be on Halloween night and from what I hear it's going to be a very special event! Check out www.radiofromdowntown.com for more information. Hope to see you all there!

Now for the rest of the story...
After I got the car I had to wait over 2 months to drive it! Why? Well, my accident injuries were initially misdiagnosed by the original treating medical professionals. It turned out that both my feet were broken, including a rather severe fracture of my right talus. I got casted and that was that!

I'll try to post updates on my status as we move forward. Thanks everybody for all your support!
