Leo Pellegrino, popularly known as Leo P, is an American saxophone player from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His wailing on the baritone sax and unique dance moves accompanied by his ever-changing hair style and matching outfits have taken him from the subways of NYC to featured status at Royal Albert Hall and international prominence.
Leo moved to New York in 2010 to attend the Manhattan School of music. Soon after graduating Leo was in viral videos that have millions of views with both Luck Chops and Too Many Zooz. Leo also did some tv work during that time appearing on an MTV show with Lucky Chops and with Beyonce and Too Many Zooz on the CMAs. Eventually, Leo left Lucky Chops and focused on Too Many Zooz. Since that time the band had their song Warriors featured in an international commercial for the Google Pixel 2 (alongside a visual including a TMZ performance) and has been named Song of the Week by the BBC.
In 2017 Leo was chosen to perform as a featured artist at the BBC Proms Tribute to Charles Mingus at Royal Albert Hall. According to Seen & Heard International, “possibly the true highlight of the evening were the outstanding solos of fushia-haired New York-based saxophonist Leo Pellegrino, choreographed to a tee in zebra-striped shoes, in Moanin’. His sheer physical agility while playing his instrument virtuosically was simply unlike anything I have experienced before. Unsurprisingly, he brought the house down.”
