Cafe Saxophone

A very lively international forum where saxophone players come to meet and greet, ask questions, give advice, have a laugh.

  • Ryan Air eat your heart out January 16, 2017
    Just booked tickets at Plymouth Pavilions to see a show. Now I always objected to a 'booking fee' on principle but, on top of the booking fee we have a £1.25 'fulfillment fee'. I might be wrong but I think someone somewhere is taking the piss now. When we get used to a fulfillment […]

  • Any fans of neo-classical or metal music...? January 15, 2017
    Is this even taboo here? As my saxophone triplet (I'm not sure what you call a quartet minus one) is inactive because the soprano saxophonist had to go for an eye operation (keep her in your prayers for those who pray) so we're taking a break from all the saxophone activities. So my old bassist […]
