Sax on the River was conceived while watching a Tom Braxton show at Harlow’s almost three years ago. During the final number of the night, Kim Waters, Jeff Clayton and Garrett Perkins joined Tom onstage. Four amazing saxophonists on the stage at one time, playing together, made the promoter’s heart skip a beat. And the rest is history. The saxophone is an instrument that brings smiles to faces and makes people’s hearts sing and she wanted to bring that to her event.
