Rock Wehrmann and Doris Long return to Pub Bricco!

Rock Wehrmann is in much demand in the Midwest as an arranger, producer, soloist and accompanist. He has appeared as a featured soloist with the Cleveland Orchestra, and performed at the presentation of the Pulitzer Prizes.

His background includes a degree in pipe organ from Kent State University, the position of Artist-in-Residence for Moog Music, and appearances on recordings by prominent jazz artists such as Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Herbie Hancock. His company, Sudden Realizations, produces music and sound design for films and broadcast. He is currently an adjunct faculty member at Oberlin, Cleveland State University and the University of Akron.

Doris Long is a Cleveland treasure. Like a fine wine, rather than diminish with age, her voice has grown richer and deeper with time and offers a complexity that draws from 50 plus years of performing. Her debut CD release Long Overdue is a 17 song collection of Great American Songbook standards that delivers a smooth finish that lingers long after the final
notes have been heard.

Doris has been making music from the time that she could speak. As a child she taught herself to sing by listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and Peggy Lee. Throughout her youth she dreamed of a career, but held off fulfilling her ambition until she had raised three sons. In 1963, piano player Saul Lucas invited her to sit in with him on weekends, opening the door to a singing career that continues to this day. Doris has sung with the best musicians on Cleveland's jazz scene, including the renowned pianist Ace Carter after he retired from the Count Basie Orchestra.

Rumor has it that he came out of retirement after hearing Doris sing. She has also performed with Hank Geer at Sammy's, Skeets Ross at the legendary Theatrical Grill, Buddy Griebel, Pete Selvaggio, Buddy Sullivan and Evelyn Wright to name a few. Doris was the featured vocalist of The Musical Theater Project's very first Song is You! concert in 2002.
