Genius Wesley Project

Aug 11, Saturday - 5pm
SJMA Next Gen Stage

Drums prodigy at only 16 years old, Genius Wesley returns for his second performance at this year’s San Jose Jazz Summer Fest. A Bay Area native, Wesley has been playing the drums since he was six years old. This standout artist’s sound is a melding of jazz, R&B and funk.

Placing fourth in the 2018 Jazz Search West competition and performing for a second time at San Jose Jazz Summer Fest, Wesley is undoubtedly a young artist on the rise.

Wesley progresses his musical skill set at the Oaktown Jazz Workshop.
