Wayne Wilkinson is a headliner jazz guitarist who performs and tours across the country and internationally. He is known for his high-octane melodic playing, which world-renowned jazz trombonist Bill Watrous said “is the greatest guitar playing I’ve ever heard.” Wayne has shared the stage with iconic jazz musicians, world-class performers, and a President of the United States. Wilkinson has played at the White House, Carnegie Hall, and major jazz and music festivals with the premier Air Force Jazz Ensembles “The Airmen of Note” in Washington, D.C., and the “Falconaires” in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Howard Paul strikes an exhausting balance between performances, lectures, recordings as a jazz guitarist and running the day-to-day operations as President/CEO of internationally renowned Benedetto Guitars. Growing up in the Atlantic City, NJ area, he’s been a Savannah, GA resident since arriving as a U.S. Army officer in 1991. Howard has performed extensively with many guitar legends, including Bucky Pizzarelli, Jimmy Bruno, Joe Beck, Romero Lubambo, Howard Alden, and more.
Shawn Purcell is a jazz guitarist, educator, arranger, and composer in the Washington DC region. Purcell has spent over 18 years as a member of the military big bands in Washington DC. From 1996-2004, Purcell was the guitarist in the U.S. Air Force jazz ensemble, The Airmen of Note. He can be heard on over 30 recordings with artists including Alan Baylock Jazz Orchestra, The Capitol Bones, Steve Fidyk, Chip McNeill, Ben Patterson Group and Ben Patterson Jazz Orchestra, Darden Purcell, The String Queens, and Mike Tomaro Big Band.
