With a long life experience in music, I'm very versatile to play many styles of jazz, blues, soul, acid jazz and deep house. I've worked as a blues singer sax and harmonica player for over 45 years. What I'm looking for now is to perform a solo DJ saxophone show. Playing deep house and jazz. This idea came from working as a saxophonist on cruise ships nine months a year for three years. I found the most DJ's had little connection to the roots of the music they were playing, they knew very little about music at all. So I thought to myself, why not do both jobs? Now along the side of my blues ca ... reer, I have worked up a DJ sax show of my own that includes music for people of all ages. Mostly deep house soul and jazz.
