SEEKING

Band to Join.

ABOUT

Experienced sax player: I play Tenor, Alto, Baritone and Soprano saxes and am looking for gigs and studios sessions, festivals, events, functions, residencies; either dep work if your regular sax player is unable to get to the gig, OR as a FULL TIME member for the "right band".

Its almost better to be in the "wrong band" at the right time, than the "right band" at the wrong time!!! So far I am still looking for that nebulous "right band" and the "right time"...

I also play a midi wind synthesizer, Blues harmonica and 'some' percussion. I play all styles, but prefer pop, soul, funk, blues and light jazz and have 23+ years experience playing, the last 11 working at Pro level.

EQUIPMENT

- Yamaha YAS62 Alto Sax (very funky!)
- Buescher Aristocrat Big B Tenor Sax (fat tone - great for rnr, and rock numbers)
- Yanagisawa curved Soprano sax (sweet sound - very expressive)
- Plus a brand new Baritone Sax (with a gravelly, raw bellow that just won't quit!)
- 10 hole diatonic Harmonicas (all keys), Green Bullet mic plus Blackstar HT5 amp.
- Yamaha Wx5 Wind Synth (provides diversity of sound choice)
OTHERS:
- High D and C Chieftain whistles (nice for folk, or to add variety)
- Conga, Djembe, Bata hand drums (not a pro in this area, but can hold a decent rhythm)
- Slot or tongue drum (lovely rhythmic and melodic sound - in F pentatonic)
