Grant Draper started his professional music career on saxophone at the age of 16 at Carowinds in North Carolina. Educational background includes a bachelor's degree in music from UNC, and the University of New Orleans jazz studies masters program under pianist Ellis Marsalis and saxophonist Ed Peterson. Some professional experiences are: house piano player at Sullivan's, Howl at the Moon, music director of the musical "Pageant," and teach a private studio of 15-20 students. Solo sax performances at Panther stadium, Time Warner arena for Hornets games, and numerous corporate, private, and club performances.

Grant has played over 3000 live professional performances on stages across the east coast to New Orleans including Carnegie Hall, Memorial Hall, Jazzfest, Bobcats Arena, Panther Stadium to name a few. No gig is too small or too big for this performer. Other musicians can be added if needed or a solo show is perfect for an intimate setting that requires first class entertainment. Also a variety of styles can be played from classy rat pack jazz to piano bar sing-a-longs.

Proficient styles Grant can perform include classical piano wedding performances, solo jazz piano and saxophone, solo piano/singer jazz, pop, R&B, motown, rock, etc. Any size venue and most budgets can be accommodated for live entertainment from solo, duo, trio, to larger groups. As a soloist Grant can put on a great show or as a band leader, he works with the finest talent in the region. Check out Grant's band on this site called "Alternate Take," and hire the group for larger budget performances.
