Meet the Band

The JiMiller Band is a five member band out of Cleveland, Ohio. The band is led by Jim's resonating vocals and jazz-infused lead guitar, Dave Blackerby plays the bass, Steve "Nev" Scheff on keyboards and Brian "Bagel" Golenberg on drums, with the newest member Vince Berry on guitar.

The JiMiller Band's style is as varied as their influences; JiMiller blends together blues, country, Cajun, rock 'n' roll, jazz and bluegrass into a musical Americana that is both fresh and timeless in their everlasting sets. However, the band is best known for its freeform improvisation rock that was made famous by The Grateful Dead and Allman Brothers.
