A spokesperson said, “Mr. Ted Ming, former group leader and lead vocalist of The Bermuda Strollers was known for his musicianship. On travel sites, such as, TripAdvisor, people spoke highly of the Bermuda Strollers who brought the fun party atmosphere to the college spring break trips from the mid-60s to mid-70s. Former visitors to the Island, chatted about Ted Ming and wanted to keep in touch with him.

“His discography includes Bermuda Calypso for Collegians and The Unbelievable Bermuda Strollers Vol. 1 & 2. As the ‘front man’, Ted Ming was well remembered. Repeat visitors would often look for this group to hear Ted sing at places such as The Forty Thieves and Clay House Inn. He had international fame and acclaim with his group and performed on many Jerry Lewis Telethons and certainly did his part to put Bermuda on the map as the premier tourist destination by touring for Bermuda Tourism.

“Tributes have poured in from around the globe commending Mr. Ming for his commitment to Bermudian Entertainment. BEU member and former Bermuda Stroller, John “JB” Burch, and other BEU members Sis. June Caisey, Bro. Tony Brannon, and our historian, Bro. Dale Butler, posted beautiful tributes on social media.
