John Branzer

John Branzer is, first and foremost, an entertainer with degrees in life experience, friendships in the music business, band wisdom, surviving the music business on the road and presents to his audience a long track record of performing, composing and conducting.
John, as he lectures also teaches with his trademark Trumpet about how he has performed with his friends and discusses the legends in the music business, in both the classical and modern music world, offering something for everyone.
He is clever, witty and can read a crowd, giving them an extensive, very humorous, and candid account of his trials and tribulations of becoming a star in his own right. John is a virtuoso and a child prodigy, and one thing he knows is that the money his parents spent on music lessons was a very good thing.
John Branzer was friends with such stars as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Jack Benny, Lucy, Harry James, Art Mooney, Henry Mancini, Arthur Fiedler, Leroy Anderson, Howard Barlow, plus many more, due to his many years of performing with these people. He tells about those friendships with his first hand accounts in a continuity that has the audience in a state of fascination that also links them to the fabulous world of music.
Audiences immediately respond to Maestro Branzer through his charisma and charm, and his trumpet playing immediately gets their undivided attention as he blazes through some of the most notable tunes ever recorded with his astonishing skills.
The ‘John Branzer Lecture Series’ is a first person narrative of the life and times of Maestro Branzer and covers many aspects from his own perspective of composing and performing with the most celebrated artists of which one would be familiar. Lecture 2 features John and three of his fellow musicians and is called ‘Four Play’, and they will perform the most favorite music of all time charted for a four piece band.
‘The Big Band Concert’ is Lecture 3 led by Maestro Branzer and also performing on trumpet, one gets the full Monte with John and his famous friends (17 piece Band) and up depending on one’s musical taste.
In Lectures 2 and 3, the musical group will be performing the full arrangements of one’s favorite songs, tailored specifically for the event and John will be presenting the audience with his personal experiences including how he acquired a particular song the group is performing, history of the song, background information and secrets that have never been told.
John has a surprise for the audience that keeps people from leaving the venue at intermission and presents a special guest during the 10-15 minute break before he returns. After the Lecture/Concert John reserves 30 minutes to meet and greet, sign autographs and pose for photographs.
