ABOUT The Bobby Lyle Dave Stryker Billy Rogers Tribute Band

Guitarist Dave Stryker got his start with Brother Jack McDuff and Stanley Turrentine before starting his own prolific career. His latest album, Eight Track III (featuring Stryker’s jazz interpretations of classic tunes from the ‘70s Eight Track era), went to #1 for 6 weeks on JazzWeek Radio.

The band is rounded out by drum great Ron E. Beck (formerly of Tower of Power), tenor saxophonist Jorge Nila and bassist Terry Burns.

All of the musicians were friends and performed with the legendary guitarist Billy Rogers who is considered one of the finest ever and made his mark with The Crusaders before his untimely passing of a drug overdose in 1978.

Enjoy a night of jazz with the Bobby Lyle Dave Stryker Billy Rogers Tribute Band in concert performing live at The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater on Saturday, September 11, 2021!
