Weather Permitting: A Melodic Family Saga

Born from the shared passion for music and united by blood ties, Weather Permitting isn't just a band; it's a harmonious fusion of family bonds and musical talent. At its core is the young piano prodigy, Mateo Belmarez, whose warm vocal stylings reminiscent of crooners such as Harry Connick Jr. and innate gift for the keys dazzles audiences and serves as the melodic heartbeat of the ensemble. Leading the rhythm section is his father, the seasoned bass player, Brad Belmarez, whose expertise sets the groove alongside his brother, the versatile and stylist guitarist, Brandon Belmarez. This familial synergy provides the band with a solid foundation and a unique musical connection that's palpable in their performances. Adding depth and complexity to their sound, the father-son duo of John Lundgren on saxophone and Russell Lundgren on drums infuse every note with passion and precision, creating rhythmic textures that elevate the band's compositions. Enter Bill Wingert, the star trombonist whose virtuosity adds layers of richness to Weather Permitting's melodies, captivating audiences with each soulful slide. Moreover, the enchanting vocals of Sally Woodcock and Jamie Belmarez, who also mesmerizes on the flute, transport listeners to higher realms, while adding depth and emotional resonance to the band's performances. Together, this ensemble, bonded by kinship and a shared love for music, delivers captivating and eclectic jazz performances leaving audiences spellbound, weather permitting.
