Sax Therapy

Why book Sax Therapy?

Think of it. The sound of a sax player at your next event.
Then think,"hey, I didn't pay an arm and a leg and he's less overwhelming than an entire band!"
I play Soprano, Alto and Tenor sax. I also play flute and clarinet.
From classical and religious including Jewish music, all through great arrangements of swing era and jazz standards,through a huge latin repetoire, and R&B and funk and fusion, I will have music that will be appropriate, flexible, and will give your event the added ambiance that will make it unforgettable.
