Band to Join.

ABOUT

Available to join a new or existing band as a sax player (tenor, baritone and soon adding alto).

I have been playing sax on and off since the early seventies but more recently I have been mentored by Pete Canter and Ray Beavis which has taken my playing to an advanced or pro level.

I am a keen improviser and comfortable working out sax parts or arrangements for both covers or new material. I tend to transcribe tunes (structure of song, chords and sax parts) so that I have everything readily available on my iPad.

Ideally I would like to join a gigging band rather than just linking up for occasional jams. I have my own transport and am happy to travel towards Plymouth, Torbay or Bristol for regular gigging or rehearsal and further afield for major gigs or recording.

EQUIPMENT

I currently play a Yamaha YTS-875EB Custom tenor paired with a Jodi Jazz DV mouthpiece (gives a sound to die for!) and a Yanagisawa B992 baritone with a nice SR Technologies Pro mouthpiece.

I can also adapt my sound to suit tunes that need a fuller sound by way of a Boss VE-20 Vocal Performer.

I also have a variety of instrument mics including a wireless DPA 4099 clip-on mic.
