Joe Miller and the Hipshakers to Rock Pardee-Morris House

Sponsored by: New Haven Museum

New Haven’s own Joe Miller and the Hipshakers will rock the Pardee-Morris House on Wednesday, July 11, (rain date, Thursday, July 12), at 7 p.m., during the 2018 Twilight Concert Series hosted by the New Haven Museum, which owns and operates the historic site.

Miller is a singer/songwriter/guitarist who grew up with the sounds of rock ‘n’ roll. He learned to play the guitar at the age of 13, and, before long, was writing songs influenced by vintage rock and blues. Through 2015-2016 he served as the lead singer/rhythm guitarist for guitar player Arlen Roth (Simon & Garfunkel/Bob Dylan).

Miller’s styles range from raw rock ‘n’ roll and dirty blues, to backwoods folk with a country flair. A high-energy performer now in his twenties, Miller does all his own songwriting and delivers a sense of free confidence and charisma. Joe Miller and the Hipshakers band members are: Joe Miller - guitar, Brian Carr – keyboards, Jon Puzemis – bass, Chuck Peterson – drums.

Miller has produced two albums to date, his debut, “Ramblin’ Guitar Man!” in 2014, and “Poor Side of Town by Joe Miller,” in 2015. His songs have been featured on 99.1 WPLR and Little Steven’s Underground Garage satellite show on Sirius XM. 

The Museum thanks Alder Salvatore E. DeCola; The Howard Gilman Foundation; Knights of Columbus, Rodrigo Council #44; and Morris Cove neighbors, including Frank Pinto and Rosemary Spring, for supporting the 2018 summer season.

About the Pardee-Morris House
Located at 325 Lighthouse Road, in New Haven, the Pardee-Morris House dates from about 1780, and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779, and rebuilt and expanded by the Morris family. In 1918, William S. Pardee, a descendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New Haven Museum.
