About the Red Miller Band

Red Miller knows the blues, and life's ups and downs. With years of experience as both a band leader and sideman, Red's music helps people forget their troubles and have a good time.

Red started singing and playing keyboards in bands around Boston in his teens. At 21, Red moved to California and started the blues band Tombstone. Lowell George, the leader of Little Feat, heard Tombstone, and encouraged Red's songwriting and synthesizer playing.

After Lowell George passed, Red returned to Boston and worked at the Berklee College of Music. While at Berklee, Red played around New England, and released two solo albums. After Berklee, Red joined Knights of Crisis. Knights of Crisis recorded two albums with Red, and performed across the mid-west. They opened for major acts including Little Feat, Blue Oyster Cult, the Guess Who, Rare Earth, and David Allan Coe. Red counts playing the Chicago House of Blues as a highlight.

After Knights of Crisis, Red joined Rock and Roll Reunion to play festivals and shows in the Carolinas. When not performing, Red studied guitar with Steve Watson (who also taught Marcus King.)

In 2022, Red moved to Virginia and formed the Red Miller Blues Band. Over the years Red has learned much about life, music, and performing. The Red Miller Band uses that experience to entertain with a mix of funky blues, blues-rock and boogie.
