Biscuit Miller and the Mix

Raised on Chicago’s South Side by his grandmother, young Dave Miller received his lifelong nickname of Biscuit from spending too much time in the kitchen. It wasn’t long before he discovered the bass guitar at a friend’s house, and at age 11, a love for music drove him from the kitchen to the stage. After years of playing in bands, Biscuit landed a fantastic and fortunate job as the bassist for Lonnie Brooks. The popular Chicago blues player took the young Miller on a wonderful ride, including performing at President Clinton’s inaugural party and meeting many blues legends. Next he formed Biscuit and the Mix, recorded a CD, Come Together, and then joined the Anthony Gomes Band to travel the world making friends and playing shows. Now all on his own with the Indianapolis-based group the Mix, Biscuit tours constantly, has a new CD out called Blues With a Smile and keeps the funky blues in the groove.
