ABOUT

Given my current schedule and the number of projects I am in, my main interest right now is hired gun work. I am able to learn parts with enough prior notice to a live performance. I would be happy to attend a rehearsal leading up to a live performance to make sure everything falls into place, but I can only commit my time for worthwhile paying gigs. I'm not in a position to work with a band just starting out or a group that can't guarantee pay.

I have been playing the saxophone for 25 years. My professional experience includes 5 years as a cruise ship musician (party band, showband, jazz combo, solo with backing tracks), 3 years as a music teacher (public school and private lessons), 3 years touring with the Dave Matthews Tribute Band, 4 years with my current band Jesse RS.
Samples of my playing can be found on the Y-tube channel - username CRWhiteley
I can also be found on FB under the same username
My instrument list includes:
Soprano, alto, tenor, bari sax
Flute
Pennywhistle
Clarinet
Bass Clarinet
Keyboard
Ukulele
Rhythm acoustic guitar
Trumpet (basic)
Accessory percussion
I also employ the use of effects for my sax via a vocal multi-effects station. (harmonizer, chorus, delay, reverb, flange, etc)
I am also capable of arranging ensemble parts (horns, strings, etc).
