Wayne Parham  

Wayne first started to really play guitar in 1963 in Washington D.C. at the age of 12 when his uncle loaned him a Gibson acoustic guitar. He was first inspired by the Chet Atkins records that were in abundance around the house. It was shortly after he got his uncle’s guitar that the Bealtes and The Rolling Stones, along with the rest of the “British Invasion” hit the airwaves of the local radio stations. Well that was a pivotal year in Wayne’s life! He began to take the instrument very seriously and has never stopped playing.  He was fortunate to be in D.C. with Danny Gatton, Roy Buchanon, and Charlie Byrd as Washington residents. Not to mention, the gift of having Mike Stern as a life long friend.  His major guitar teachers were Carl Filipiak and the late Orin Smith, both from Baltimore and Peabody Conservatory Students.

So many bands and a deep passion for the guitar led him to keep playing, learning and studying. He was in many bands before he moved to Charlottesville. It is here that he started to study more Jazz. He now performs solo entertaining people at all sorts of venues and occasions. 

Recently in Charlottesville, he has been playing solo guitar at Bel Rio and Fellini’s, as well as private occasions such as art shows and parties. 47 years of experience will make for an enjoyable occasion for you and your guests!

Wayne plays Jazz standards with a touch of Jazz/Blues and Blues standards with vocals. He is available for an instrumental only occasions or an instrumental with vocals occasions. Whatever meets your needs for your listening pleasure!
