The Jessica Lynn Band

Matthew Bauer – Percussion: As an avid performer, Matthew shares his variety of percussion performance with several groups. After earning a performance degree from the Purchase College Conservatory (NY) and combining it with extensive travel and touring experience, the opportunities have grown into a wide variety of musical ensembles. Coming from a background within the marching arts has helped bring a sense of discipline and tradition to any style music Matthew performs whether it is country, rock, EDM, orchestral, or world music. With a focus on drum set, mallet percussion, electronics or hand percussion, Matthew enjoys bringing his version of ideas to any musical table. When not focusing on performing, Matthew enjoys teaching 1 on 1 or group ensembles and is also an accomplished piano technician and tuner.

Peter Calamera – Bass Guitar: A retired New York City police officer, Peter found a successful career in music when his full-length concert television special for public television “Cal – Forever and Beyond” went nationwide on the network in 2008. A multi-instrumentalist with an ear for that “X Factor,” Peter has become a recognizable and respected name in the music industry. The last several years have found him turning his attention and talents to developing other artists, producing and managing Jessica Lynn, as well as playing bass guitar in her band.

Victoria Calamera – Background Vocals: Music has been such an important part of Victoria's life for as long as she can remember.

She is well versed in various styles from country, jazz/big band, latin, pop, r&b/soul, rock, opera, plays multi instruments, and loves to dance, especially ballroom and tap. She has many acting credits to her name, having been in numerous television commercials, shows and movies, and when time allows, works as a freelance artist in oils and graphic art.
