Happy Birthday Theo Croker!

July 17

At the tremendously successful NJMH benefit concert last month, Dee Dee Bridgewater’s band featured trumpeter Theo Croker, who turns all of 29 years old today!

The scion of a distinguished trumpet family (his grandfather was Adolfus “Doc” Cheatham), Croker has been establishing his own sterling reputation internationally over the past several years, and we’re proud to have presented him years back at our Harlem in the Himalayas concert series at The Rubin Museum of Art.
