John B. Miller & Friends:
This is a group made up of professional and semi-professional musicians from diverse performing backgrounds.

In recent years, John B Miller & Friends has come together to produce and perform a concert series during Advent (leading up to Christmas), and one during Lent (leading up to Easter).
