Back on the Eastside! Native Detroiter Walt Szymanski returns to the Dirty Dog from his artistic lair in Tumbaco Ecuador to share his special kind of "edutainment" and always explorative musical concepts.

Blessed as a student of both Herbie Williams and Marucs Belgrave, and then musical director for the legendary J.C. Heard & his Orchestra as well as hard-bop groups IMPACT and the Motor City Jazz Quintet marked the highlights of Walt's early career in Detroit.

The next twenty years found Walt in NYC engrossed in a myriad of music endevours as both trumpet/vocal artist and composer/arranger/orchestrator as well, serving in the later capacity for BET, American Idol and Dancing With The Stars.

Currently Walt lives in Tumbaco Ecuador, a suburb of Quito. He now directs his life towards chillaxin', composing, studying, mentoring young minds, attempting to discern the pulse of the future musical model and performing with his secondline group, the Zulu Kings Brass Band as well as a selection of diverse projects.
