Orlin Trapp Auditorium

Inspiring Vocals & Jazz Band

Wayne Messmer is excited to return to the LCCCA stage on SUN, DEC 5th at 7:00p.m. for a Christmas program that will feature seasonal favorites, well-known standards and classics that will delight and entertain. Backed by a group of some of Chicago’s finest musicians, the program will be filled with Holiday cheer carrying a message of hope, glowing with the true spirit of Christmas.

Wayne is a native-born Chicagoan and veteran entertainer and one of Chicago’s most recognized voices. He has been seen and heard for decades performing the National Anthem for the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Wolves Hockey, Blackhawks, Bears, Bulls, White Sox, Chicago Sting Soccer, Loyola and Northwestern Universities. He has appeared at major functions and conventions across the country, as well as in concert and in smaller settings of jazz clubs and senior communities. He is also the host of the popular Wayne Messmer Radio Show, heard SUN evenings form 7:00-8:00p.m. on 90.9FM/WDCB.org



In addition to his work with sports, Messmer is a highly respected professional speaker, broadcaster and musical performer and actor who loves to share his talents with appreciative audiences across the greater Chicagoland area. Wayne’s ability as a singer of the classic tunes from “The Great American Songbook,” standards and selections from the Broadway stage have earned rave reviews. He has been described as a “singer of remarkable talent,” reminiscent of the song stylings of Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and the other great crooners of the golden era of popular music.

Live performances have been applauded for their outstanding entertainment value. As a master storyteller with an engaging personality, Messmer connects with every audience before whom he appears, sharing his voice, along with a sense of humor sharing memories and anecdotes to make the music come to life.
