JoeytheSaxMan / Bio

The desire to play the saxophone was stronger than I was before my teens. I had older friends who in one shape or another were musical. Music was integrated into my life at a young age, it was stronger than I was, great ... right! My first music teacher, before my teens left the greatest impression on me. He was a graduate of Royal Conservatory of Music back in the 40's, and he imparted to me such an appreciation for music. I was strong in theory at a young age, and my marks at school reflected that.
Vern was a master at his craft, and he will be remembered.
I won a scholarship in music upon graduation,
and continue to love playing and performing.
I've performed with 32 piece bands as well as wedding bands, Blues, R & B and Rock bands .
Toured in Europe in the mid 90's , performed with The Mother Jones Band and shared the stage with Juno winner Lorraine Klaasen and her talented mother, the legend Thandie Klaasen. I continue to perform solo, duo with Naveen on keys, to Five-O with great local talent in Montreal. Weddings and corporate events are my speciality.
My motto is to 'Keep The Groove Alive'

Ciao ... Joey
