AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
Known to jazz aficionados from coast to coast and Canada as "MR. TROMBONE," Mr. Betters can boast of a long list of professional credits. During the early years of his career, he played with a number of New York bands. He and his quartet toured with the RAY CHARLES ENSEMBLE and appeared with comedian DICK GREGORY at New York's legendary Apollo Theater -- a theater which helped to catapult such jazz artists as Ella Fitzgerald to stardom. He has also enjoyed performing with LOUIS ARMSTRONG, AL HIRT, SLIDE HAMPTON, RAMSEY LEWIS, and URBIE GREEN.

RIP Harold. The heavens are now blessed with your presence. We will miss you here on earth and will always cherish the spirit of your life.
Hi Mr. Betters,
Years back I dubbed myself the unofficial mayor of Shadyside, with regular office hours at the Encore. I enjoyed your music there over and over again. Thanks, Harold! I learned you did a recent performance in my old home town of Greensburg and that you were much appreciated there.
Glad you could join us. Now we are getting somewhere. Your page is very well done and there are some nice pictures of you that preceded you on this network. Also thanks for posting your blogs and gigs. Our members are starting to fill up the clubs. Please add me as a friend.
