Vibraphonist, Oliver Mayman & his Band

An Ann Arbor, Michigan, native and current student at Philadelphia’s Temple University, Oliver Mayman is a vibraphonist, pianist, educator, and composer. Beginning drums at age 9 and piano at age 13, the vibraphone was an inevitable discovery as a teenager -- the instrument essentially fusing the mechanics of drumming with the harmonic capabilities of the piano. By bringing his array of pianist influences such as Ethan Iverson, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, and McCoy Tyner and applying their concepts to the vibraphone, he truly treats the instrument as a piano, comfortable in every setting from solo to big band. He has performed across Michigan, from clubs like Cliff Bell’s and Blue LLama to events attracting hundreds of thousands like the Detroit Jazz Festival. He also has extensive teaching experience, teaching privately for vibraphone, drums, piano, and music theory, in addition to being on faculty at vibesworkshop.com, the largest online vibraphone community. He has been awarded, through various ensembles, first place (2019) and several outstanding soloist awards (2017-2019) at the Western Michigan Jazz Invitational for both the combo and big band divisions; a Downbeat Magazine student award for outstanding combo (2019) and outstanding soloist (2020); and second place in the junior open division at the prestigious 2018 M-Prize International Chamber Arts Competition. He was also invited to perform at the 2019 Detroit Jazz Festival as part of an all-star youth group composed of young musicians from across Michigan
