Bermuda Strollers


Calypso & Reggae Band

Led by Ted Ming with John Ming, the group featured Stan “Lord Necktie” Seymour and Rudy Ford; musicians such as Lance Furbert also played with the Strollers, whose sound was billed as rock calypso. In their early days the group performed at Elbow Beach to college crowds, then on to the Forty Thieves for years, and places like Casey’s and other venues.
