Following a 21-week run at the New York City nightclub 54 Below, The John Miller Quartet Plus 2, featuring a host of Broadway musicians, will debut at The Cutting Room Feb. 1.
Performances will be offered at 10 PM and 11:30 PM.
According to press notes, "John Miller – the music and theatre industry veteran best known as a bassist and music coordinator – brings together an all-star group of Broadway musicians who get together after the curtain falls to play their deep-groove favorites."
In addition to Miller on bass, the shows will feature Larry Saltzman (Simon and Garfunkel, Carole King, Bette Midler, Chris Botti) on guitar, John Korba (Hall & Oates, Phoebe Snow, Carly Simon, John Waite) on piano, Clint DeGanon (Stuff, Kid Rock, Elvis Costello, Saturday Night Live Band) on drums, David Mann (Tower of Power, James Taylor, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder) on tenor sax and Joe Passaro (Aretha Franklin, Manhattan Transfer, Nina Simone, Donald Fagen) on percussion.
Miller's Broadway credits include Once, Rock of Ages, Newsies, Jersey Boys, The Producers, Follies, The Music Man and Sweet Charity, among others. As a freelance bass player, he has played and recorded with P. Diddy, Leonard Cohen, Michael Jackson, Smashing Pumpkins, Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Art Garfunkel, Aerosmith, Bette Midler, Bob Dylan, Celine Dion, B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Carly Simon, Tony Bennett, Luther Vandross, Diana Ross, Pete Seeger, Tommy Flannigan and the New York Philharmonic.
"Stage Door Johnny," his debut CD on the PS Classics label, reinvents a dozen Broadway standards in a variety of genres. For more information, visit JohnMillerBass.com.
