Wayne Rollers' musical journey began back in San Diego where in high school he was unknowingly following his passion. He was very active in the music department as a percussionist/drummer. He learned theory and lettered in music was drumline captain during his last year. He even landed a role in the schools performance of the musical 'Grease'. After realizing his love for the arts, Wayne Roller pursuit his passion then eventually landed his first job as a performer at Enchanted Village in Washington state leading him to eventually move to Seattle for good. He left a well known dance troop 'Dancesation LIve' back home in hopes to enter into something more challenging. Roller has been in every aspect of the performing arts. He landed a job as a singing/dancing waiter on 'The Spirit of Puget Sound'in Seattle. He took a stab at stand up comedy doing open mic nights at 'The Comedy Underground', was in a comedy troop, and landed a part in an independent film. Nothing was going to keep Roller from being on stage. It was until 1996 that Roller joined up with some musicians to form his first band VeeDaVoo. Only soon after the completion of their first and only CD 'Pioneer' that Roller moved onto a more serious project called Men From Mars. It is at this point that he gets his musical feet wet. In fact, soaked. After only being in the scene for a year Roller captured interest that eventually took him on a West Coast tour that included some venues such as the famous 'Roxy' and Sammy Hagars' own 'Cabo Wabo'. But once again his progress and enthusiasm did not match the rest of the band and again leaving behind a self titled LP. With his debut CD finished, Wayne Roller is now ripe and ready for the next level. Stronger and more mature he holds his destiny in his own hands. Wayne Roller is just a matter of time. Undeniable.
