Doyle Cooper began playing trumpet at the age of 10. Raised in a musical family, it was always a matter of what he would play, not if he would play. He was immersed in Traditional Jazz since his Grandfather and Mother both performed for years. From New Orleans, Doyle is dedicated to traditional jazz that has shaped the culture of his hometown. Doyle, or “Red” as he is known by most, has studied and performed with many world renowned Jazz musicians. Doyle graduated from the Jazz Studies program at NOCCA and Loyola University. He was awarded the Grand Prize in the “Seeking Satch” competition. Currently he leads his own band The Red Hot Brass Band and can be found working in New Orleans when he is not touring.
