The enduring success of The Terry Sims Band is one of the great stories of Milwaukee music. During the past few years, they have forged a sound as a local phenomenon on their own terms. The band formed in 2002, now celebrates positive vibes and undiluted jazz funk in 2012. During these times, keyboardist, composer and arranger Terry Sims has been the aural architect of the band. After a brief foray into R&B within the local scene, many of the core of the band arrived from separate paths., bringing similar independent styles helping to develop a sound that is unique in the level of originality & quality. The newest member is Aleisia Miller on vocals, which improves the range of the band from a high energy show (Jazz in the Park/Milwaukee, Wi) - to the smooth stylings of a more intimate atmosphere (Piano Blu/Pewaukee, Wi). Playing modern, infectious grooves fringed with Latin, funk, smooth jazz and jazz, buoyed by traces of R&B, rock and top 40, the members of the band are inspired by this hybrid of R&B and jazz which they call “The Milwaukee Sound,”. The Terry Sims Band has traveled & opened some great venues in and out of the Midwest, with two successful studio albums and an opening for Anthony Hamilton 12',Morris Day& The Time11', Earth, Wind & Fire at Summerfest 08,Frankie Beverly /Maze 09, and Mint Condition in 2010. The band enjoys great support collaborating with some of the best local musicians in the area.The Terry Sims Band is one of the great stories in the Milwaukee music scene.
