Bill Wysaske Bill Wysaske

Drummer—composer—arranger—educator, Bill’s list of credits include Michael Bublé, David Foster, Count Basie Orchestra, Christian McBride, Steve Tyrell, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, John Clayton, The Tonight Show, Ellen Degeneres, Randy Brecker, John Beasley and many more. He spent his youth in Seattle Washington and later finished his education at The University of North Texas in Denton. Soon after, he was accepted into the prestigious Henry Mancini Institute prompting his move to Southern California and it was in Los Angeles where his career blossomed. With his broad Jazz pedigree, Bill made his name working with both large and small ensembles locally and abroad. But his interests go beyond Jazz music as his expertise in both Broadway pit orchestras or pop bands are every bit an equal to session work and composition/arranging. When not making music, he writes science fiction and enjoys the company of his dogs Captain, Mei Mei, and Tasha.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
