Overview

Byron Stripling, who sold out his memorable Ella, Louis & All That Jazz show in 2017, is heralded as a “powerhouse trumpeter gifted with a soulful voice and a charismatic onstage swagger.” Uptown Nights with Byron Stripling is something new for the POPS — he’ll explore a magical world of song and dance popularized in the clubs of the ’40s and ’50s. Inspired by Harlem’s famed musical hot spots like The Cotton Club and The Savoy, this swingin’ night of musical sensations focuses on Harlem’s heyday — a time when Duke Ellington’s orchestra was the house band, and Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, and Ethel Waters showcased the classics! Vocalist Carmen Bradford and tap dancer Ted Louis Levy round out the package.
