3 Nights At The Strand - Live
Miller and The Other Sinners
For 3 consecutive nights, Miller and The Other Sinners, a Western New York based, but nationally touring Southern Soul band, brought its blend of roots and soul music styles to the intimate Strand Theater in North Tonawanda, NY. All 3 shows were recorded and video taped live, and an album compiled of the best performances from each night entitled, "3 Nights At The Strand."
Miller and The Other Sinners is founded by Western New York native, David Michael Miler, also co-founder of the DHU Strand Theater. In 2014, David released his first solo album, Poisons Sipped, in collaboration with members of the world famous Campbel Brothers, meaning it to be a local/regional release. This 12 song original record ended up getting international attention and made its way into the top 25 Blues Rock albums of 2014. His sophomore solo album, Same Soil, climbed as high as #3 on the Roots Music Report, making it the #3 top blues album played worldwide on radio with two songs making the top 50.
David has received worldwide press as well as numerous awards including the 2015 “Artist of The Year” by the Arts Services Institute of Western New York, Best Blues Male Vocalist by Night Life Magazine (2013, 2014 and 2015) and has shared the stage with artists such as Gary Clark, Jr., Jonny Lang, The Steve Miller Band, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Shemekia Copeland, James Cotton, the late Bobby Blue Bland, and many more.
From September 2015 through October 2016, David toured a 4 piece version of his band back and forth across the country with over 200 shows across 16 states. David is accompanied on the road by former Buddy Guy sax player of nearly 10 years, Jay Moynihan, playing both tenor and alto sax, guitar and EWI. Buffalo drummer, Deshawn D Ray Jackson has been holding down drums and percussion and recently, Niagara Falls bass player, keyboardist and producer Donta Myles, has joined the Sinners, filling out the touring band.
Due to a demand for a live recording, David saw an opportunity to do a series of intimate shows at the private DHU Strand Theater and rehearsal space. During "3 Nights At The Strand", each night the audience experienced the 3 types of shows that David performs. On this album and subsequent bones trucks, you will hear several songs performed acoustically, you will experience songs done by the touring band that is paving the way for the larger festival/show band, and you will experience that festival/show band as well.
