Allison Miller’s Boom Tic Boom
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
“Dazzling, delightful, and challenging…Not only one of the finest drummers on the scene, but also one of the most innovative compositional voices.”—AllMusic on Allison Miller
Named Rising Star Drummer and ranked among today’s top 20 jazz drummers by DownBeat’s influential Critics Poll, powerhouse New York City–based musician and composer Allison Miller draws from a wide array of genres, from rock to jazz and beyond.
Miller’s charismatic, rhythmically propulsive melodic sensibility shines with her all-star jazz band Boom Tic Boom, featuring fellow travelers drawn to her driving funky grooves, “fierce clarity and bold imagination” (Guardian UK). Joining Miller at her Wex debut are Jenny Scheinman on violin, Carmen Staaf on piano, Todd Sickafoose on bass, Jeff Lederer on clarinet, and Kirk Knuffke on cornet. As the Wall Street Journal enthused, Boom Tic Boom “has a razor-sharp precision that recalls classic drummer-led ensembles of 50 years ago—the music of Art Blakey, Art Taylor and Max Roach come to mind—but Ms. Miller’s band works from a diverse sonic palette that is unmistakably contemporary.” Don’t miss their tight, telepathic interplay in our intimate Performance Space.
