Wayne H Weeks

Wayne started out as a drummer in a band while his father was stationed in Germany. From there he went on to learn percussion and was interested in all types of rhythms, he was known as the sound effects guy in his church orchestra. He decided to teach himself the bass when the regular bassist started not showing up for rehearsal and has taken the bass as his primary instrument; he was recently given an upright and now is starting to enjoy exploring the added benefit that comes with working an instrument and coaxing it's sounds out. In addition he has also recently purchased an electric upright and has started using this and the electric bass in his band.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
