Trumpeter and crooner Brian Newman has earned his stripes as a man about town …

Fulfilling his dream to become a New York City jazz man, Brian is perhaps best known as Lady Gaga’s jazz bandleader, having most recently collaborated with her and Tony Bennett on the Grammy-nominated album, Cheek to Cheek and joining them on worldwide tour. Brian’s trumpet performance with Gaga was also captured on 2011’s A Very Gaga Holiday EP as well as a special jazz version of Gaga’s hit “You and I”.

Brian continues to hold court with his longstanding weekly residency as bandleader at Rose Bar at the Gramercy Park Hotel on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and select Friday nights at NYC’s legendary Rainbow Room with his orchestra. Brian also routinely appears for special live performances with a diverse array of musical acts, which have included Mark Murphy, Jose Feliciano, Dierks Bentley, Jon Batiste, Willie Nile and The Dirty Pearls.  Read More »
