GigMasters RISING STAR AWARD WINNER (2008) for Top Saxophonist in all of North America! JP performs as a Saxophone solo act, specializing in smooth, relaxing Jazz/pop music for special occasions. JP is fully insured for liability up to $1million. He is backed up by MIDI instrumentation played through a high tech Bose sound system. He can fill the air with the sound of a small Jazz ensemble or a large orchestra. Your audience will be delighted by his take on familiar love songs, musicals and contemporary favorites. They will also love his renditions of popular Jazz standards.

Saxophonist to the Stars! JP was personally invited by Hollywood Starlet and Maxim model Talulah Riley (Inception, The Dilemma) to perform at her Bel Air mansion, check out her great review of JP below. JP has also had the honor of being a guest performer at the Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills. Other places JP has performed at are: The St. Regis Resort in Dana Point, Pelican Hill in Newport Coast, Montage in Laguna Beach and the Renaissance hotel in Hollywood to name a few.

JP, a California native began playing saxophone in the 6th grade, he excelled in his high school Jazz and marching band. He graduated Magna Cum Laude in Music from Irvine Valley College; he also holds a degree in Business from CSU Fullerton.

JP uses a state of the art Bose cylindrical sound system that is unlike anything you have ever seen or heard before! The sound gets spread out 180 degrees immersing listeners in to soothing ambient music while only taking up a small space. The sound produced is always clear and crisp, never blaring. Treat your guests to the Bose sound experience!*(see below)

This one man show is one of the most affordable in town and requires no deposit to book, PLUS JP will pay the 5% Gigmasters finder fee as his special thanks to you. All prices are negotiable, we can work within your budget, just let us know what your budget is. Many venues now require insurance of all performers you can rest at ease because JP carries a $1million liability insurance policy. JP not only offers great music but more importantly, friendly and professional customer service that you can trust. If you love smooth Jazz at a great price you will love JP.

Stranger with a Sax! Your opportunity to bring a cool, smooth sound to your special event!

JP was absolutely wonderful at my holiday party. He was 100% professional, and despite my being rather harried on the evening of the event, he was completely calm and helpful - set himself up and played perfectly all evening, and stayed longer than I'd initially asked, as my party ran on longer than expected. His music was perfect -- I highly recommend him, and will be using him again myself.

JP played a our only daughters wedding. This as you can imagine was a very important ocassion not only for my daughter , our new son in law and his parents, but my husband and I. I had gone to great ends to make every detail of her wedding memorable. I wanted to se the mood for the most romatic dinner I could, and imagined a solo sax. JP was the most incrediably talanted and extremely professional musician. He went above and beyond what I had expected or imagined! Our guests were thrilled and are still sending emails and thank you's for such an incredible memory. I hightly recommend JP for any occsian that you would like to be made more special than you can imagine.
