About Wayne Tympanick
Wayne began his music career as a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Mass., where he studied drum set with Alan Dawson. During that time, he did extensive touring with the popular singing group The Platters and was fortunate to play with the great Czechoslovakian pianist and composer Yan Hammer, who went on to write sound scores for many shows including "Miami Vice." Following graduation from Berklee, Wayne performed locally in the Boston area and also toured with Full Circle for the USO. Wayne decided to dedicate himself to a career in Music Education, working as a high school band director in Texas. He also played with a number of noted bands, including the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the Guy Lombardo Orchestra, and many Texas jazz groups. In the late 1980s, Wayne returned to his East Coast roots, settling in first Baltimore and later in the Washington, DC area, where he performs and teaches. He has performed locally with the George Hipp Orchestra, Joe Ayala Trio, Seth Kibel’s Dixieland All-Stars and the Bay Jazz Project as well as many other groups. He also has performed live for Maryland Public Radio. His jazz groups have performed in many venues, including the Corcoran Art Gallery.
