Robert Miller's Project Grand Slam
Robert Miller's Project Grand Slam
The brainchild of acclaimed bassist/composer Robert Miller, Project Grand Slam (PGS) is a jazz-rock fusion band that has earned over one million video views, while defying genres, languages and geographic boundaries. The band is noted for their energetic live performances.

In June of 2017 they will release their 5th album "The PGS Experience" which will feature 2 time Grammy nominee Mindi Abair on saxophone.

PGS has cultivated a fervent, worldwide fan base fueled in large part by the Latin/Caribbean-infused title track from the band’s fourth studio album, ‘The Queen’s Carnival’ (CEN/SONY). No Depression praised the album as “a uniquely affecting work…impossibly memorable!” With influences as diverse as Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, Afro-Cuban rhythms and Celtic folk, Robert has delivered a sound like no other. In fact, one of Robert’s musical signatures is to take classic rock songs such as Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Fire’ and The Kinks’ ‘You Really Got Me’, and to completely reimagine them.

In 2017 and 2016 PGS provided support for such artists as Mindi Abair and The BoneShakers, Boney James (twice), YES and Scott Weiland (formerly of Stone Temple Pilots), and performed at major venues including the Bergen Performing Arts Center, Ridgefield Playhouse, F.M. Kirby Performing Arts Center, Gramercy Theater, and Garcia’s at The Capitol Theater, while also performing at a number of major clubs including The Blue Note, The Cutting Room, and Iridium.

In 2017 PGS has upcoming performances scheduled as headliner at the Highland Lakes Concert Series, The Ocho Rios International Jazz fest, The St. Kitts Music Festival and the Magic City Jazz Festival in Birmingham Alabama in addition to continuing monthly residencies at The Groove and Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar – with more dates in the works.
