This group is a nationally touring “Southern Soul” band from Buffalo, NY, bringing a blend of gut bucket delta grit, Memphis soul, gospel spirit and funky rhythm and blues.
They have an unforgettable show filled with infectious grooves and tremendous musicianship all supporting well written songs that really connect.
“David Miller and The Other Sinners is a fabulous band to work with,” said Sound Bites Grill owner Stephen Sullins. “The band is very talented and engaging. Their unique soulful blues with a bit of southern spice is a style all their own. The crowd enjoyed them so much the first time they played at our club, that we are having them back. This band is welcome at our entertainment restaurant & club anytime.”
