Chicago’s Original “Voice of the National Anthem”
“Wayne Messmer’s performance of the Canadian and the U. S. National Anthems at the NHL All-Star Game at Chicago Stadium is still considered as one of the greatest moments in sports’ history.”
“When Messmer sang “God Bless America” and “The Star Spangled Banner” at Game 5 of the 2016 World Series, it was as close to perfection as it gets.”
“With that rich baritone voice, Wayne has the unique ability to be able to interpret a ballad or a jazz classic as well as anyone I’ve ever heard.”
“I had an immediate reaction of musical “oneness” with him—the kind of camaraderie between singer and pianist that is a rare and special thing.”
“Last night’s event was the best we ever had. Wayne was fantastic. People were complimenting us all night for having him sing,’The National Anthem.’ Our deepest gratitude to Wayne for not only singing, but for hanging out and visiting with our residents for a large portion of the night. It was awesome!!! He’s a very genuine guy.”
