Davids first job was at 13 years old, helping with odd jobs around his Uncles Hardware Store. This first gig started a solid foundation for a successful life of work in many fields. Miller worked many jobs in his life, always giving 110 percent. David Miller started playing clubs in 1980, and called his group the Dave Miller Band, and many years later was renamed the Blues and Jazz Experience. After going through a life changing time September 11, 2001, David found how precious life was then and even more today. After losing his job on 9/11 and getting a divorce sometime later, an epiphany of becoming a full-time musician became reality in 2008. Today Miller lives life to the fullest, enjoying music and hobbies. Supporting himself is an obvious necessity, but health and happiness is the first priority. Yes, David is a full-time musician and promoter, but also fulfills his appetite for inner peace.
