Harold Miller - Keyboardist and vocalist
It began with half-hearted violin lessons in elementary school. Not surprisingly, young
Harold did not take to the violin and switched to classical piano where he found his
true musical calling. Eventually, Harold was performing at recitals with his proud Dad,
a lover of classical music, in the audience. His classical training served as a solid
foundation for Harold as he ventured toward other music genres including jazz and
pop. Ultimately, Harold's first love was rock.
Harold's music inspirations are many: The Beatles and the Rolling Stones lead the
way along with icons from R&B and Doo Wop including James Brown, Wilson Pickett,
and the Drifters. He formed his first band in high school and has not looked back.
He has since been a mainstay performer with several Long Island-based bands. His
early band, the Radical Five, shared the bill with Mitch Ryder and the Detroit
Wheels. In recent years he has performed with Champagne, Cover-to-Cover, and a
contemporary iteration of the Fabulairs - the band, as noted above, in which
