2-5 pm 
Frank Gualtieri - trombone,
 Traditional jazz, Dixieland and hot dance music are his favorites to play and all he needs to keep him busy and musically happy. His solos are exciting and fresh and his beautiful tone on the sweeter dance tunes is wonderful to hear. 
Andy Schumm - Cornet 
Andy is mostly known as a fine cornet player. However, never content to play just one instrument, he has taken various jobs on piano, trombone, bass sax, clarinet, banjo, baritone and drums. Andy is willing to do whatever it takes to play the good stuff. 

Mike Bezin - Drums/vocals  
  Mike decided he wanted to do some of the other, lesser-known but great tunes from the early era of jazz. The WEJB developed into a trad-based group that focused on playing a repertoire of about 500 tunes. Mike rearranges original versions of “hot dance” style recordings to fit the six piece makeup of the WEJB.

Leah Bezin - Banjo/vocals Playing hot dance is her dream come true. Some quotes from colleagues: “Metronomic” (Franz Jackson) “The Freddie Green of the banjo” (Paul Libman). “Chord Monster” (Charlie DeVore). “The Relentless Banjo” (Mike Cogan). “Fluid virtuosity” (Howard Reich) “Banjo perfection!” (Hal Smith)“That’s the way banjo should be played” (Lynn Zimmer) 

Eric Schneider - Clarinet and sax Eric plays top-notch jazz in a richly diverse career that blends studio work concert performances and jazz festivals. The many calls for his services on clarinet rekindled his love affair with the instrument, and he is now in constant demand by groups that need a soloist possessing both erudition and passion. 

Dave Bock - Tuba Although Dave’s primary musical instrument is his trombone, he does an amazing job on tuba, trumpet, piano, string bass, kazoo and the unusual E b Alto Horn as well. He performs regularly with several Chicago bands such as the Fat Babies.
