Tom Washatka is a mainstay in the northeast Wisconsin music scene and the impact he's had in the area is huge. He is an outstanding jazz saxophonist with several critically acclaimed albums he's released under his own name and as part of various combos. He has arranged music for all types of groups, he's written numerous pieces, and he's worked with some pretty big names in jazz like pianist John Harmon, guitarist Gene Bertoncini, and his wife, vocalist Janet Planet. On top of that, he's an impeccable producer and engineer recording many excellent jazz artists at his Steel Moon Studio and releasing those recordings on his and Janet's Stellar Sound Productions label. We invite you to meet the dynamo known as Tom Washatka.
