For Hiram Figueroa, the journey began in Puerto Rico, where he was born. Hiram took up the conga drum when he was eight, then turned to the saxophone at the age of 12.
He performed with such notables as The Temptations, The Four Tops, Jimmy Smith and Vital Information, (past Journey drummer) among others.
Then he joined the US Army bands field, where he played all over the world including South Korea, Japan and many other countries. Now in Houston Texas where he has been from 2010.
He then decided to go solo/duo where he plays jazz, ballads, smooth jazz and Latin music...it's the ideal music for weddings, anniversaries, happy and cocktail hours or any type of events.

"Hiram Figueroa", is Houston's hottest saxophonist and Latin Singer sensation!!! He is the choice for all events, weddings receptions, cocktail hours, corporate and private events and a RS Berkeley instruments endorser artist.
He is well known for its professionalism on and off the stage. All performances come with an attention to detail. And when performing as a soloist or duo, we simply shine on the stage. Every performance brings excellent music, and a high quality, well-rounded sound. He puts on a signature stamp on every performance.
For me, the journey began in Puerto Rico, where he was born. Percussion instruments were an early inspiration, as young I learned rhythms in the Puerto Rican and Cuban tradition. I turned to the saxophone at the age of 12 and grew up listening to a variety of music, the earliest of which included: Afro-Caribbean, European and jazz.
I have performed with such notables groups such as The Temptations, The Four Tops, Jimmy Smith and Vital Information, (past Journey drummer) among others.
After playing for a while with local salsa and jazz bands I decided to look for different horizons and joined the US Army bands field, where I served for over 20 years and played all over the world including South Korea, Japan and many other countries. After retiring from the US Army I decided to move to Houston Texas where I made it my home.
Now I'm going go solo/duo where I play jazz, ballads, smooth jazz and Latin music with alto, tenor, and soprano sax. I also can make your Latin party a success because I can sing as well. This is the ideal solo/duo group for any type of events including weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and cocktail hours.
