Come and join us as we pay homage to the master of Motown, Stevie Wonder. The genius composer and lyricist blazed new musical trails fusing R&B, funk, jazz, reggae, and pop to create a tapestry of sound that is unrivaled.

About Sammy Miller and The Congregation
A native of Los Angeles, Grammy® nominated drummer Sammy Miller has become known for his unique maturity and relentless focus on making music that feels good as a drummer, singer and bandleader. Upon completing his Master’s at The Juilliard School, Sammy formed his ensemble, The Congregation. As a band, they are focused on sharing the power of community through their music—joyful jazz.

Ars Nova selected The Congregation for the ‘Makers Lab’ in 2017 to produce their original theater jazz show, “Great Awakening.” While independently the band members have performed and recorded with notable artists including Wynton Marsalis, Iron and Wine, and Jason Mraz at venues including the White House, Lincoln Center and the Hollywood Bowl, they have opted to stick together to spread joy throughout the world.

About Kulululu:
∆∆∆∆∆ Kulululu has traveled long and far to finally arrive on earth. While here, Kulululu is in search of the answers to the questions; why? and why not? You may not understand what they are saying. You may not understand why they look the way they do. They may not understand these things either. What's important is that time is continuous, and without it we cannot find our way back to where we started.

Press:
"Opening up the night were the comically clad KULULULU. Part frenzied rock set, part lively performance art piece, dancers ran around the audience as they thrashed about on stage." -Cervante Pope, The Deli Magzine
