Wayne is a very talented musician. I have hired him to play saxophone, play flute and write/ arrange horn parts. He is my first call for anything related to horns.”

“Wayne is one of the finest musicians I know. An excellent musician and an all-around swell fellow. Dedicated and ethical. In my book one of the best.”
– Russ Wilson
The Wilson Music Company
“In his work with our company’s national touring production, EbzB Productions’ War Bonds: The Songs & Letters of World War II, Wayne has been superb to work with in every respect. He’s been on tour with us for every season that we’ve had the full music ensemble with the show – and we’ll keep him on as long as he’s willing. His expertise & flexibility is invaluable. Anyone who has Wayne in their ensemble will be deeply fortunate to have him.”
