An instrumental solo can break hearts, lift spirits, even change lives in extreme cases. Sax is the favourite instrument for many folk, and for good reason. Saxophone, in the right hands, is so emotional, so passionate; it sings, screams, whispers.
Snake gives us 25 classics, including Baker Street, Careless Whisper, Will You, Still Crazy after all these Years, Respect, Yakety Yak, and his own solos from Million Love Songs, Moving on Up, Search for the Hero, and Lisa Stansfield’s Change.
Snake reveals their background and history as well as playing them in context. What is their individual magic ingredient, what makes them classic? How did they come about, how did the players produce that magic?
Sultry sax, searing sax, screaming sax, sexy sax, soulful sax, this show has it all.
Tickets are £15 and are available online, The Old Town Hall & OFS Direct.
THIS IS A SEATED SHOW
