Biography

Steve Miller Band

The Steve Miller Band is an American rock band formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California by Steve Miller who moved out from Chicago to be part of the groovy scene on the West Coast.  The original name was the Steve Miller Blues Band and you will even occasionally see them listed on late 1960s posters as just the Miller Blues Band. Shortly after signing a contract with Capitol Records in 1967, the band shortened its name to the Steve Miller Band and in February 1968, recorded its debut album, Children of the Future.
