Joshua Weiner

Joshua Weiner enjoys his day job as a professor but wishes it left more time for music.

About Me

I was raised in Milwaukee, lived subsequently in Chicago, San Diego, St. Louis, and now reside in Iowa. I am a proud alumnus of ~15 garage rock bands and have written, performed (drums, guitars, bass, keys, vocals), and recorded my own Beatlesque indie rock with my (long-distance) collaborator Rob. We released our first album as The Poor Richards in 2006, and a 5-song EP (”When I Can”) in 2007. Both are available via Spotify, iTunes, or CD Baby, if you're interested, and you can sample on SoundCloud. I also put out a double album of improvised dark ambient music as The Main Sequence with my collaborator Joel in 2014, also available on all streaming platforms. I have too many guitars, drum sets, and records and a very lovely and understanding wife, along with 3 beautiful children.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
