Wayman�s new home in western Los Angeles County is not too far from his recording label, Beverly Hills-based Rendezvous Entertainment. In addition, Tisdale�s manager lives in the area and now hopes to add more shows on the West Coast to his tour schedule.

In fact, Wayman will only have to drive about 45-minutes to his next gig, which is Sept. 29 on board the Queen Mary in Long Beach. During the solo show, Wayman will be performing songs from his latest CD called Hang Time, which features the current smooth jazz single �Ready to Hang.� Three days later, he�ll perform as part of the Guitars & Saxes tour 26 miles off the California coast during the Catalina Island JazzTrax Festival.
