Why book Gerry Huggins - Saxophonist?

If you're looking for the perfect music for your wedding, private party, corporate event, Christmas party, funeral, or grand opening, look no further. I play soprano, alto, and tenor sax, and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument). My styles vary from jazz standards up to funk, with everything in between. Imagine the love songs you know, heard on a smooth mellow saxophone. I'm very flexible, and would love to provide the music for your event! I am based out of Fredericktown, MO.

Contact me, and you will get a quick response, usually within 1-2 hours.

Renewal in Marina Del Rey , CA March 5, 2011. Job well done!

March 5, 2011 was a beautiful day in the Marina to celebrate a seven year anniversary as well as my birthday. I came across Gerry on this website and listened to his music and knew he would be the right saxophonist for the job. Communication was fair. He was very good about returning messages and leading up to the event, I felt comfortable that things had fallen into place. I really appreciate all he did to help make my vision come together and the compliments were non stop. May God Bless You and keep up the great work.

Gerry Huggins - Saxophonist

At age nine, Gerry Huggins began to explore the musical world with his saxophone. His talents with his sax won him the Outstanding Musician award in senior year of high school. Huggins attended Cal State University and received a BA in Communications. While studying, he continued playing his saxophone at Bakersfield College. This earned him two Most Outstanding Musician awards in the Bakersfield College Jazz Ensemble. In addition, he won two Outstanding Soloist awards for his appearances at the Fullerton College Jazz festival. His love for music turned professional during the mid 90s. He was invited to record with the local band, "The Pleasure Merchants" in their sophomore album, "Rhyme or Reason". Following that, he began playing for a variety of local bands, including "Thee Majestics", "T.O.S.B (The Old School Band)", and "The Rhythm Kings". After collaborating with keyboardist Darnell Gholston, he realized that his true passion was smooth jazz and R&B. Funk, jazz and old school styles are also among the genres Huggins exceeds in. His technique also can stretch from classical to big band. His debut album, "Ocean Breeze" was released in 2002; only to be followed by "A Very Special Christmas" in 2005 and "From the Heart" in 2007. Huggins is currently working on new material and hopefully will be released in the near future. He has a son, and resides in Fredericktown, MO..

Varies by the event. With advanced notice (preferably 2 months notice), I can perform virtually any song that is requested.

Influences & Inspiration

My biggest influence is saxophonist Gerald Albright, but I also have roots in the Old School bands from the 70's (Earth Wind & Fire, Isley Brothers, Tower of Power, etc). All of these grounds helped shape my sound.
