Byron Stripling’s electrifying and heartfelt tribute to Louis Armstrong has become America’s most popular orchestral pops program.  With his engaging rapport, jazzy vocals and virtuoso trumpet moves, Byron dazzles audiences wherever he goes.  His signature version of “When The Saints Go Marchin’ In” closes the show!

Stripling attended the Eastman School of Music in Rochester.  Later Stripling was lead trumpeter and soloist with the Count Basie Orchestra – he toured and recorded with Dizzy Gillespie, Woody Herman, Gerry Mulligan, and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra.

Broadway audiences remember Stripling as the lead in the musicals,  “Satchmo” and “From Second Avenue to Broadway.”
