Always a pleasure working with animals.

Just stumbed across the soundtrack for StarCraft 2, Heart of the Swarm.

If you enjoy the music, please support great music and musicians by picking up the album on iTunes!

I had the distinct pleasure to play some tenor and bass trombone including my friends, mentors, and colleagues Mr. David Ridge (San Francisco Opera), Paul Welcomer (San Francisco Symphony), John Engelkes (San Francisco Symphony), Jeff Budin (San Francisco Ballet), Mark Lawrence (San Francisco Symphony, Emeritus), Peter Wahrhaftig, and many other talented musicians.

Thanks guys, and to the great Ms. Janet Ketchum for a fabulous time.  It's always a pleasure working with you.

Trombone Day 2012 - Wayne Wallace



David Ridge, Donald Kennelly, Jeff Budin, Zachariah Spellman, Jeanne Geiger

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10 - 9 am-2 pm

Music Building Recital Hall, MB1055, CSU, East Bay (Hayward, CA)


“Wallace’s unit is like an elite commando unit: lean, mean and packing some serious heat.” — Forest Dylan Bryant, Jazz Observer

“San Francisco native Wayne Wallace is practically a one-man ecosystem of jazz. He is a phenomenal
trombonist, composer, arranger, bandleader, educator, producer, and head of his own record label. With
impeccable musicianship and boundless imagination, this group takes listeners on a multicultural
musical voyage to Cuba, Africa, and Latin America.” — Forrest Dylan Bryant, Jazz Observer
