Vytautas Grubliauskas

A trumpeter and singer, Vytautas Grubliauskas is one of the leading jazz musicians in Western Lithuania, known as a leader and principal soloist with the Doudi Jazz Band from Klaipėda. His hot trumpet and raspy voice (for which he is often dubbed the Lithuanian Armstrong) lend the band a special flavour and charm. Although regularly performing with the Doudi Jazz Band, he sometimes also appears in international projects. For many years Vytautas Grubliauskas has shared his time and energy between performing and wide-ranging public activities, as a long-time President of the Klaipėda Jazz Club, Associate Professor and Head of the Jazz Department at the Klaipėda University, artistic and executive director of the Klaipėda Jazz Festival (now as a patron), member of the Lithuanian Parliament, and Mayor of the City of Klaipėda.
