    Born and raised on the south side of Chicago by his Grandmother; he was given his childhood nickname, Biscuit, after always being in the kitchen and underfoot while she was trying to cook. Growing up at Grandma’s house also gave Biscuit his love and appreciation for music, as gospel and soul were played in the home on a regular basis.

    A heavy touring schedule of over 250 gigs a year in the US and abroad have led to a dedicated fan base. In 2012 Biscuit’s fun and funky style of bass playing earned him the Blues Music Award for Bassist of the Year. He also took 2nd place in the bassist category in the Blues Matters International Writers Poll. Biscuit Miller and The Mix are once again on the road with his latest CD “BLUES WITH A SMILE” and ready to bring a smorgasbord of fun to your party. What’s better than a bowlful of Soulful, Funky Blues stew? A pipin’ hot Biscuit, of course! Read more at Biscuit Miller's website here.

    Nick Schnebelen Trio

    Kansas City, Ks  blues
    Doors Open at  6:30, showtime 8:00
    Cover Charge  $10.00   

     

    Nick Schnebelen has been playing guitar all of his life. Coming through over three generations of guitarists and musicians, in many ways, he is just another vessel for the spirit of music. Growing up in the blues scene of Kansas City, Nick knows many of the KC greats, those alive and those who’ve passed.

    After cutting his teeth on guitar with father Bob Schnebelen, Nick moved out East in search of a new experience. Nick says,”Someone once told me, if you want to be known, you gotta be from somewhere else”. That stuck with him and led him to Philadelphia where he lived for nearly nine years. Hitting blues jams that very same week he landed East, he was playing shows the following week. Half a year later, at nineteen, he was playing most of the Blues and Rock clubs in New York City Manhattan in the Village.
