"Jon Seiger's Louis Armstrong Tribute" - Live in London

Jon Seiger, bandleader, trumpet player, and lead vocalist, studied with Richard Brooks and the great trumpeter Roy Eldridge, and is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music. Jon has performed around the world with such notables as The Drifters, The Shirelles, Ella Fitzgerald, Maynard Ferguson, Tony Bennett, Arvell Shaw, Joe Williams, Edgar Winter, Gap Mangione, and many others. In 1988, Jon Seiger performed at Carnegie Hall with the Hi Tops, and he was the house bandleader at The King Cole Room in the St Regis Hotel, New York City, for 3 years. He has also performed with the Metropolitan Stompers and the Rhythm Aces and has made appearances in New York City with some of the surviving members of Louis Armstrong's Band.

For the past 10 years the 'All Stars' has included Floyd Hughes on trombone, banjo, and vocals. Floyd gained his Masters Degree in Music Education from Ball State University in Indiana. Floyd has played in US Army Bands and has also played trombone regularly with the Bourbon Street Jazz Band. Chuck VanBuren on clarinet, alto sax, tenor sax, and flute is a welcome addition to the band. His ability to play many instruments adds a variety of tonal textures to the concerts. He also performs with the Rochester Philharmonic. Jordan Klapman on piano, and vocals, is one of Toronto's leading jazz musicians and he has played with many great players. He is one of the world's foremost historians, and performers, of the music of Fats Waller.

Lynn Eberhardt, bass, tuba, and vocals is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music. Lynn was a bass player in the U.S. Coast Guard Band and played at J.F.K's funeral. Drummer, and vocalist, Eric Metzgar is the youngest member of the band and is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music.
