ABOUT

I am currently gigging with a few bands in the (925) Bay Area, so
I'm not looking to join another project at the moment. That being said, I'm open to subbing if needed and may consider a new project ONLY if the circumstances are right.
I'm NOT looking to simply rehearse with a band. I'm sorry, but I just do not have the time for that.

I play the 4 main saxophones (mostly Tenor and Alto, but yes - I do play Bari and Soprano as well)
I love playing Funk, R&B, Soul, Smooth Jazz, Blues, etc.
I'm experienced playing in large and small groups. I also really enjoy working with vocalists (and giving them space); Can also solo well
