Terry Myers is a woodwind player who has been living and working in Central Florida for over 50 years. He's the musical director for the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra and has enjoyed a long career working with many of the greats in jazz. His saxophone style is reminiscent of Coleman Hawkins and Lester Young. He was a staple at Rosie O'Grady's Good Time Emporium, and is well known throughout the world.
Terry has performed with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, the Tex Beneke Orchestra, the Les Elgart Band, and the Jimmy Dorsey Orchestra. In addition, he led the Artie Shaw Orchestra when former leader, Dick Johnson, was on hiatus, and Terry was always Buddy Morrow's "first call" to sub for him with the TDO.
In 1992, Terry was invited to form and lead a "Tribute to Benny Goodman" orchestra, which performed successfully for many years at such attractions as Busch Gardens in Florida and Virginia, Cypress Gardens and Silver Springs, as well as most of the major concert halls in Florida and across the country.
Now featured with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Terry is an exceedingly charming host who puts the audience at ease and then wows them with his and the TDO's musical presentation.
Terry's dynamic career has enabled him to appear with such talented players as Bob Haggert, Milt Hinton, Butch Miles, Allan Vaché, Warren Vaché, Kenny Davern, Marty Grosz, Major Holly, Mousey Alexander, Flip Phillips, Walt Lavinsky, Bill Allred, John Allred, Wild Bill Davison, Chubby Jackson, Duffy Jackson, Rosemary Clooney, Eddie Higgins, Bobby Rosengarten, Larry Elgart, Vince Giordano, and a host of others.
Terry Myers will be performing at Blue Bamboo as part of the JazzPro Series on Wednesday, April 5th at 8 PM
