Jim Miller
Our 1st Silver Anniversary Member Jim MIller of Bluegrass Sound
SEBA proudly announces our first Silver Anniversary Member: Jim Miller of Marietta, Georgia. Member since 2002 and founder of SEBA Member Band Bluegrass Sound.

Miller started his musical adventure at a flea market stall he worked with his wife Sue. Another vendor heard him "tooting that harmonica" and invited him to a jam. Eventually Miller bought and learned to play bass and formed a band to perform at the Acworth Opry.

"I liked being on stage, I guess Iím a ham." Miller said. The only remaining original member, Miller manages Bluegrass Sound, "Weíve played 60 gigs in the last two years and traveled up to 400 miles to perform."

In 2004 Miller took over the Acworth Opry from its originators, the Pinons, and ran it thru 2007 in an old barn at a horse park in Acworth. In April 2006 Acworth Opry, won Atlanta Country Music.comís award for Top Bluegrass Venue.

"Too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer" Miller said so he moved out of the barn, first to Theater On Main in Acworth and then to Adams Park Community Center where it is now the Kennesaw Opry and another SEBA member, Bob Twyman, puts on a show monthly every 2nd Friday night at 8 pm.

"I had never played with anyone before Bluegrass Music," Miller said. "It made me feel really good. Iím glad I joined SEBA and will continue my membership, some of the best people IĎve met are SEBA members."

Bluegrass Sound has performed twice at SEBA Fayetteville and twice at our Blairsville Bluegrass Celebration.
