ABOUT

Down-to-earth, laid back Pro-Style saxophonist with many years of stage experience. I have recorded (and/or made guest appearances) on at least over a dozen albums. I also would be interested in being part of a touring situation. I'd love to find a cover band that plays a nice crowd pleasing variety. I have an impressive resume that speaks for itself, so if you would like to know more about my accomplishments/endeavors, contact me

My past bands are....
- Worldwide (Gospel), Twin Cities.
- Transit Authority (cover band), Twin Cities.
- Before Him (Contemp. Christian, folk/pop & rock), Twin Cities.
- Wenso Ashby featuring Zsame (Contemp. Jazz/ R&B/ Soul), Twin Cities.


I'm interested in particularly joining a band/situation that is serious & has work readily available. Will consider start-ups as well, as long as goals/objectives are in line with one another. Bookings/additional info:
