Max_ProfileMax Wellman – General Manager & Part Owner

Vocalist Max Wellman is enticing music lovers throughout the region. With a sound evoking the likes of Sinatra & Connick, Wellman’s recordings & performances promise that the Great American Songbook is alive & well for a new generation of listeners.


When Wellman teams up with his jazz trio or his Big Band, it’s an opportunity to witness his talent on a grand scale. Concerts like his annual ‘Home for the Holidays’ have become a cherished treasure throughout the region.


Over the years, Wellman has had recorded success with his ‘Comes Love’ EP (2009) and ‘Max Wellman Live with His Big Band’ (2010) was met with rave reviews, as was ‘You Must Believe In Spring’ (2014). He also routinely sells out his Songbook Project subscription service — a project that sheds light on dozens of treasured standards every year. Wellman has successfully produced concerts at many of the midwest’s gems, from historic Hoyt Sherman Place to the Des Moines Playhouse to the restored Paramount Theater in Cedar Rapids.


Coming off the release of his full-length big band album, ‘Just In Time,’ Wellman is serving as the first entertainment director at Noce, a state-of-the-art new jazz club in the heart of downtown Des Moines, Iowa.

Max’s music is available at as well as Spotify, Apple Music, & any other prominent music distributor.
