Hailing from outside of New York City, trumpeter and crooner Johnny Panzarella provides a swingin' musical styling and stage presence, echoing the greats such as Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, and Louis Prima. The capability of crooning a romantic ballad, wailing on a trumpet solo, and scat-singing on an up-tempo tune makes Johnny P. a real "Jazz Triple-Threat". Reminiscent of 1960's rat-pack type coolness, Johnny's on-stage interaction with the cats in the band provide great entertainment for the audience. A must see showcase, Johnny P. and the Wiseguys will have you dancing, laughing, and swinging.
DENNIS LAMBERT (piano)
Dennis Lambert, member of the Lackland Airforce Band of the West, brings his encyclopedia of jazz experience and knowledge to help create the swingin' piano stylings of the Wiseguys.
ROBERT KARNS (tenor saxophone)
Robert Karns, also member of the Lackland Airforce Band of the West, provides great swinging Saxophone sounds that echo the stylings of Red Prysock, Sam Butera, and Sonny Rollins.
JAY MITTHAUER (drums)
Hailing from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, drummer extraordinaire, Jay Bird Mitthauer, has played with an abundance of great musicians over the years, including Chase, Bobby Darin, and The 4 Tops.
TIM PACO (bass)
A staple of the New Orleans jazz scene, bass player Tim Paco brings a wealth of musical experience, showmanship, and swing know-how to the Wiseguys.
DAVE WOODARD (trombone)
New Orleans Trombonist, Dave Woodard, who now calls San Antonio home, provides an enthusiasm to the group while laying down a rock-solid musical foundation for the horn section.
