Guitarist and composer Ryan Waszmer is a promising young talent to the jazz community. After moving to Florida at the age of 8, Ryan didn’t become interested in the guitar until he was 15. He would soon begin studying classical guitar performance and composition in college. He has performed in a wide variety of settings from jazz bands and jazz combos to classical guitar ensembles and full choirs. Ryan has played with notable musicians such as Richard Drexler, Jeff Rupert, Marty Morell, Larry Coryell, Harry Allen, Ira Sullivan, John Allred, and Dan Miller. He has performed at the Lakeside Jazz Festival, the HAPCO Sunshine Jazz Festival, the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, the UCF Orlando Jazz Festival, and the Winter Park Autumn Art Festival. Ryan can be heard on Big Man on Campus (Flying Horse) 2017, featuring Harry Allen, and The Bat Swings (Flying Horse) 2018. Ryan is currently collaborating on several projects with organist Ceasar Frazier, known for his work with Lou Donaldson and Marvin Gaye.
