From left, brothers Mike Miller and Lionelle Miller busk July 4 on Broadway at Ninth Street. Known as the Band of Brothers, they have been playing downtown during the months of March through November nearly every weekend for six years. Lionelle estimates that pre-COVID-19, they had only missed about six or seven weekends. The Miller brothers have welcomed other musicians into the band at various times, with the longest-serving and most frequent third member being Mike del Rosario.
