ABOUT

I'm Jon , 22, male, well into making exciting music and am wide open to a the massive wealth of music that is out there in the world. I am mainly a Sax player and thrive on playing new and exciting forms of music, be it Jazz, classical, contemporary or pop, which is why I am particularly keen on Jazz/Funk/Jam band music (see influences) which allows for improvising and truly awesome ensemble moments. During my degree in music at Southampton University I specialised in Jazz Funk and contemporary music, forming a 10-piece funk band called J Lack and the JDs. Now in London, I'm hoping to form a Jam band with a drummer friend of mine. If you're interested in playing at all, drop a line.
