The 4 Saxes group from Bonners Ferry

Bonners Ferry sax quartet bringing jazz, pop to Creston

Web Lead

A Bonners Ferry, Idaho, group will visit Creston’s Snoring Sasquatch on Nov. 8. The 4 Saxes serve up a unique, toe-tapping, palate-pleasing, esthetically high-calorie, aurally filling musical dish of jazz and pop, with a light dash of classical and a pinch of Irish folk to round out their acoustical plate.

The audience will embark on a musical adventure as they journey from Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony to the Beatles, from Strauss to Sousa, from Mozart to Mancini, from Scott Joplin Rags to Puttin’ on the Ritz. The 4 Saxes eclectic performance repertoire is not boxed-in and they invite audience members to expand their musical listening pleasure and join them outside of the box.

Rich, Dana, Jeff and Cindy — the three guys and one gal that comprise the 4 Saxes — have enjoyed playing together for several years, making music with a variety of instruments, in a variety of musical styles and groups. Three of the four play multiple instruments and two of the four have been music teachers in the schools.

Together, as the 4 Saxes, they’ve found a tantalizing sound of their own and are eager to share it with audiences everywhere!

Tickets are $10 at Kingfisher Used Books, Black Bear Books and Buffalo Trails Coffee House, and $13 at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.; the show starts at 7.
