    The JiMiller Band is a five member band out of Cleveland, Ohio. The band is led by Jim Miller’s resonating vocals and jazz-infused lead guitar, Dave Blackerby plays the bass, Steve “Nev” Scheff on keyboards and Brian “Bagel” Golenberg on drums, with the newest member Vince Berry on guitar.

    The JiMiller Band’s style is as varied as their influences; JiMiller blends together blues, country, Cajun, rock ‘n’ roll, jazz and bluegrass into a musical Americana that is both fresh and timeless in their everlasting sets. However, the band is best known for its free-form improvisation rock that was made famous by The Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers. 


    The scenic Nelson Ledges Quarry Park is a great place to camp, swim, hike, sunbathe, attend music festivals, or just plain hang out. The park is a beautiful landscape made up of 250 acres of forest, meadows, streams, rock ledges, fishing lakes, and of course the quarry itself. There are also more than 400 campsites, some deep in the woods, some along the Quarry, and others in secluded meadows. Nelson Ledges is an ideal venue for weekend-long music festivals and is rolling through its 2019 season with gusto.
