Wesley Jazz Ensemble

Director:  Wayne Adachi
The Wesley Jazz Ensemble (“WJE”) has evolved from the original Wesley Boy Scout Band which was started in 1996 by Wayne Adachi (then Scoutmaster for Troop 201).  Over the years, the band’s makeup has changed.  The band has seventeen members, consisting of brass and saxes, a full rhythm section and vocalists.  WJE has continued to perform at various community and church events, and senior citizens centers throughout the San Jose and Mid-Peninsula areas.
WJE’s music encompasses a variety of songs from the swing-era of the 40’s, jazz standards, blues, Latin tunes, rock and roll to today’s well known popular hits, as we feature solos from all members.
