Led by acclaimed bassist/composer Robert Miller, Project Grand Slam has released 7 highly regarded albums, performed around the world, and earned over one million video views, while defying genres, languages and geographic boundaries.
Following on from last year’s very successful studio album Trippin' – PGS are back another new studio album “PGS 7” and from our review – Robert Miller has another hit album to delight his fans!
Trippin’ Achieved #1 Spot on Billboard Charts in 2018, the first album for PGR to crack billboard and indeed PGS also toured Europe in 2018 – so their fan base is truly global.
Over the years, Robert Miller has taken his band PGS from strength to strength – each new album achieving even more success than the previous release – music industry reviews for “PGS 7’’ have been nothing short of sensational!
Reviewers have said:
“Album Of The Year!”
“I'm blown away by this album!”
“Sublimely talented musical wizards!”
There’s no band that’s comes to mind that has defined the individual sound that is Project Grand Slam! A unique blend of Jazz, Rock Latin Fusion – delivered New York Style!
The band’s newest album, “PGS 7”, just released in June 2019, is the group’s 7th studio album and features 12 new songs written and arranged by Robert which continue the musical diversity that PGS is known for, and including Robert’s first three political protest/message songs – “Redemption Road”, “Get Out!” and “Tree Of Life”. ‘’Get Out!” refers to Robert’s direct protest against the current U.S. Trump Administration and the catastrophe of this Government in the White House.
Adding to his musical signature of taking Classic Rock songs from the 1960s and totally “reimagining” them in the PGS style, ‘’PGS 7” includes Robert’s stunning take on Dobie Gray’s 1965 hit, “The ‘In’ Crowd”. The album has already been called “Album Of The Year!”
PGS has wowed audiences from Jazz to Rock, from Millennials to Baby Boomers, at festivals, performing arts centres and other major venues, in the U.S. and around the world, headlining and performing alongside a number of major artists, including Blues Traveller, Edgar Winter, YES, Boney James and Mindi Abair, and has cultivated a fervent, worldwide fan base.
Originally formed in 2007, and re-formed by Robert in 2015, the band now consists of Robert leading a group of young, extremely talented, musicians from places such as Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Mexico, Canada, Brazil and Cuba, which Robert affectionately refers to as his “International Cartel”.
Robert writes and arranges all of the band’s material, including vocal and instrumental originals. As noted, one of his musical signatures is to take Classic Rock hits and “reimagine” them in PGS’s unique style. He’s done this with Jimi Hendrix’ “Fire”, The Kinks’ “You Really Got Me”, Cream’s “I’m So Glad”, The Who’s “I Can’t Explain”, Dobie Gray’s “The ‘In’ Crowd”, and Phish’s “Free”.
Experience Project Grand Slam’s New Album and you’ll see why PGS are rated as one of America’s best bands in the past 25 years!
