Angelo L. Stokes can effortlessly be described as a “Universal Percussionist” and has accomplished what many men only dare to dream and are unable to fathom.  Angelo has been a protégé of Marcus Belgrave since the tender age of 16 while he attended The Detroit School for the Performing Arts and has had the distinction of performing with Aretha Franklin, Toni Tennille, Lou Rawls, Bo Diddley, Stevie Wonder and an innumerable amount of other internationally respected musicians.  Angelo has increased his classical ability and discipline on various percussive instruments as a former member of the United States Air Force Band of The West and as a private music instructor.  He continues to innovate and re-establish the world of the percussive arts with a sundry of global techniques learned through continued studies and the modest acknowledgement that his gift will only be made stronger through the acceptance of acumen from the artists that he has the privilege of sharing the stage with.
