Miller, Martin & Ki, a quartet of popular Sedona musicians band together on Saturday, April 21, 6:30-9:30 p.m. at the Marketplace Café Nightspot. The guitar, vocal and songwriting firepower of this band has continued to thrill audiences since its formation in the summer of 2009.

The eclectic quartet of 'Miller, Martin & Ki' features the work of three virtuoso acoustic guitarists along with rich lead vocals and harmonies The band performs a tantalizing blend of styles including fiery flamenco, sophisticated brazilian jazz, catchy originals and crowd-pleasing hits. Their versions of classic pop/rock tunes by artists such as the Eagles, the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac and Sting have won them a following on the local music scene.

In addition to having busy solo recording and performing careers, the members of this quartet (consisting of Robin Miller, Susannah Martin, Eric Miller and Patrick Ki) come together to create a dynamic synergy, full of fun energy and musical versatility.

Robin Miller brings a powerful blues and rock based guitar sound to the group, honed by over forty years of professional experience. As a prolific songwriter, Robin has also written several of the original songs performed by the group.

Patrick Ki is a formally trained classical and jazz guitarist who brings a more lyrical-based guitar sound to the ensemble, influenced by his Hawaiian island upbringing. He also drives a strong and deep groove to propel the group.

The passion and fire of latin music richly colors the instrumental style of Eric Miller, who has traveled to Spain to study the art of flamenco guitar. An award-winning songwriter in his own right, Eric has also contributed many original compositions that are a staple of the group's repertoire.

With an ability to sing in several different languages and to improvise fluidly, vocalist Susannah Martin gives the band a unique flair. She sings fluently in Spanish and Portuguese, but also loves to belt out rhythm and blues and deliver a touch of sultry jazz. Susannah enjoys a dually located music career, living and working in northern Arizona as well as in her hometown of San Diego.

The Marketplace Café offers an exceptional performance and dining venue to the public with no cover charge. Their musical stage and sound setup, a favorite of local bands and fans, coupled with their comfortable and elegant dining and lounge space make for a special and romantic evening.
