A Northwest Blues Rock Power Trio performing 'original' music. "As we all know, there are many bands out there playing music. Among them, there are a few that "make it happen", bring incredible talent and energy to the gig and every single song they play. Kenny James Miller Band is one of those. Powerful, evocative, and a unique rock/blues band. That's why I had them on my TV show, "11th & Grant with Eric Funk", the six time Emmy Award winning Montana PBS series that features professional Montana musicians. These guys are 'the real deal'."

MudSlide Charley creates a powerful and seminal expression of 21st century blues. With our soul firmly planted in the dirt of the Mississippi Delta, we weave together Blues, Hip Hop and early R&B into the fabric of our sound, to write and perform songs that exude emotional fervor, and joyous spontaneity. Simultaneously brash and playful these blues tell vital stories full of danger, longing, sexuality, and hope.

ce. The band writes and performs original songs pumping with vital relevance and emotional fervor that exude a true reverence for the blues musicians who have paved our way. Using gritty electric guitar, elastic bass, chest thumping backbeat, and rich soulful vocals punctuated by harmonica, piano, and saxophone, Mudslide Charley creates a musical gumbo that rattles bones and loosens limbs.
