The Smoky Mountain Blues Society will once again present live music with its first River Cruise of 2023. The inaugural performance will feature the Biscuit Miller Band on the Tennessee Riverboat on Sunday, April 2nd at 2 pm – 5 pm.

As one reviewer put it, “Biscuit Miller always wears an infectious smile and he plays a funky Chicago styled blues.”

Mr. Miller was born December 30, 1961) and is an American electric blues bassist, singer and songwriter. He writes most of his own material, and has released three albums to date. In 2012 and 2017, Miller won a Blues Music Award in the ‘Instrumentalist – Bass’ category.

His best known songs include “Lay It On Down”, ” Bottle of Whiskey Bottle of Wine”, “Going Home”, “One More Mile”, “Monday Morning Blues”, and “Wishbone”. Down Beat described him as “a real crowd-pleaser.”
