saxpack

Inspired by the showmanship and camaraderie of the legendary Rat Pack, saxophonist Jeff Kashiwa started the The Sax Pack in 2004 to share his passion for jazz, funk and R&B. The group is comprised of Kashiwa, Steve Cole and Jackiem Joyner, and has toured nationally and released two CDs, “The Sax Pack” and “The Pack is Back,” from Shanachie Records.

The well-known saxophonists are excited to create a show that combines their individual styles and diverse backgrounds for a fresh approach to the music that inspired them all to become musicians: jazz.

Highlights of the tour will feature original music written specifically for The Sax Pack, as well as each sax player’s signature hits and the classic funk, R&B and jazz tunes that will get fans out of their seats.

Tickets start at $20.00
