Miller Miller Miller & Sloan was an American funk/Pop band, based in New York City, that reached its zenith in the early 1980s.[1] The band was made up of the three Miller brothers Dan, C.B. "Barney" and Mike, plus and their childhood friend, Blake Sloan. The band opened for The Clash,[2] as well as Tom Tom Club and Chaka Khan, playing prominent venues such as The Ritz and CBGB's.

The band was the subject of the documentary film, Miller Miller Miller & Sloan: We Don't Wanna Make You Dance, by director Lucy Kostelanetz. The movie inspired a new Facebook page [3] for the band which links to their many music videos and other band information.

Mike Miller, the band's vocalist/percussionist is now a solo artist known as Mr. Shy.[5]
