Solo saxophone is perfect for all occasions. Wedding ceremonies, receptions, private functions, parties, shopping centres, markets, etc.
Steve plays with pre-recorded double bass tracks to provide an authentic sounding jazz performance. All double bass backing tracks are actual recordings of Steve playing the double bass, no computer generated tracks. He can also play solo saxophone unaccompanied.
A small battery powered amplifier is used to play the backing tracks. This allows a totally portable performance. Moving to different locations is no issue and no power is required.
Steve plays a mix of cool jazz and latin standards and groove tunes. Special requests are also catered for.
A great sounding jazz duo with just one musician!
