Born in 1958 in Hartford, Conneticut, Wayne Bergeron grew up in Southern California where he started on French horn before switching to trumpet in the 7th grade. Although a difficult instrument to play, Bergeron took to the trumpet quickly. “I found I had natural ability for playing the trumpet in the upper register at an early age.” Bergeron credits his junior high school band director and first trumpet teacher, Ron Savitt, for molding his natural abilities into practical working skills.

In 1986, Bergeron landed the lead trumpet position with the Maynard Ferguson Band. He can be heard on such Maynard Ferguson recordings as “Body & Soul,” “Big Bop Nouveau,” “Brass Attitude” and “The One & Only Maynard Ferguson.” Remarking on the talented trumpet player, Maynard Ferguson had this to say during a radio interview: “Wayne is the most musical lead trumpet player I’ve ever had in my band.”

As a sideman, Bergeron’s list of CD credits reads like a who’s who in contemporary jazz and pop, running the stylistic gamut from Ray Charles to Green Day. Other stellar names include Beyoncé, Michael Buble, Josh Groban and many more. He has also worked on 300 plus TV & motion picture soundtracks. A partial list of film credits include Toy Story 3, Despicable Me and Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

Wayne’s featured trumpet solos can be heard on the motion pictures Duplicity, Rocky Balboa, The Incredibles, Leatherheads, The Princess & the Frog, The Perfect Game, High Crimes, Rounders, Fled, Hey Arnold (the movie), The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Rat Pack, Childstar, Illegal Tender, Aladdin and the King of Thieves, Foolproof, and 2 Days in the Valley.

After being behind the scenes for so many years, Bergeron stepped out on his own with his first solo effort “You Call This a Living?” This debut project earned him a Grammy nomination in 2004 for Best Large Jazz Ensemble as well as rave reviews from fans and press
worldwide. Wayne’s latest recording “Plays Well With Others” was released on the Concord Jazz label in 2007 is being met with the same acclaim.

Bergeron’s passion for big bands has led to his inclusion in some of Los Angeles’ most well respected bands. He has recorded with Quincy Jones, Gordon Goodwin, Arturo Sandoval, Pat Williams, Sammy Nestico, Jack Sheldon, Chris Walden, Tom Kubis, John La Barbera, Andy Martin, Ralph Carmichael, Bob Florence, Frank Capp, Matt Catingub, Bill Liston, Kim Richmond, Ray Anthony, Buddy Childers, Roger Neumann, Bill Perkins, Bill Elliott, Gary Irwin, Bill Watrous, Bob Curnow and Phil Kelly.

Bergeron is a National Artist for the Yamaha Corporation of America and is co-designer of the YTR-8335LA trumpet and YFH-8315G Flugelhorn. Bergeron enjoys his work as a clinician/educator and feels it’s important to give back by mentoring young musicians. He has no intention of slowing down. Learn more on Wayne’s website:
