ABOUT

Hi, my name is Violet, and I currently play baritone saxophone in the funk/soul group The Souled Out.
I'm looking for groups to join, or just some cool folks to jam with!!! (Any bajo sexto players out there?!) I have really eclectic musical tastes, and love to play/listen to Tex-Mex/conjunto tejano, norteño, rancheras, corridos, cumbias, huapangos, redovas, polkas, country & western, blues, jazz, funk, and classical. However, the genres closest to my heart are BLUES and CONJUNTO! My biggest musical dreams? To play my bari sax in a blues band and sax and/or diatonic button accordion in a Tex-Mex group or similar conjunto!
I can read music and even transpose written parts on-sight, as well as learn tunes by rote or by ear.
