ABOUT

If you are looking for a sax player with jazz vocabulary, R&B sensibilities and the heart of a funkateer, you have found the right guy! I have played rock, R&B, blues, jazz and funk from NY to Chicago and all over the Midwest, appearing with notables like Buddy Guy and Brother John Katke. I?m very experienced in a wide array of musical situations and I can read music, play by ear and improvise. If you want to add a big helping of saxy flavor to your band, contact me!

EQUIPMENT

I specialize on tenor and bari sax, but I can play all of them when the situation calls for it. I own my own stands, mics (wired and wireless), and cords so I can literally "plug and play" into any situation.
