Bob Wagner

2018 marks Bob's debut as a solo recording artist. Together up with pianist Peter Hillard, bassist Rannan Meyer, and drummer Sean J. Kennedy Bob has released Toot Suite, a collection of six elegant and jazzy pieces written for solo trumpet and jazz trio written by renowned french composer Claude Bolling. Over the past 25+ years, Bob Wagner has maintained a consistently active schedule as a freelance trumpet performer, recording artist, and bandleader based in the Philadelphia, PA area.

In 2011, feeling the pull of the trumpet, Bob set aside his corporate life and decided to concentrate full time on music and found his true calling. As a touring artist, Bob has appeared as a trumpet soloist with various classical, jazz, R&B & theatrical organizations throughout the country

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
