Still Free (and worth every penny!)

Saxotopia Quartet was formed at California Lutheran College by the then head of the music department, Herr Doktor Dan Geeting.


The guys.

Recognizing a deep need for saxophone quartet music in the surrounding community, and having nothing else to do, Dan canvassed the area for world-class professional sax players. When he couldn't find those, he settled for our current membership: guys who could stumble through the door carrying a sax case.

With a mere 90 minutes of rehearsal time each week Saxotopia Quartet has managed to become a truly mediocre (with promise) source of cultural entertainment. All of our musicians are Ventura County residents. Because some of us are lazy, we've resisted the clamor of our many fans to “take it on the road” (and they really want us to go) and have performed close to home.

I laughed. I cried. I farted.

The reviews have been overwhelming. Our fans turn out to be an enthusiastic crowd; especially towards the end of the show.

It was almost worth missing Matlock!

Saxophones: Only Technically Brass

Trumpet is a real man's instrument

Fanfares, baby. That's what it's all about. Trumpets can scream to the heavens, letting everyone know that the king is here. Each phrase played by the trumpeter a clarion call to action and adventure.

Trumpet players see each other, and it's like we're getting ready to square off or get into a fight or something.

Trumpets: Only Technically Musical

Ya want sexy? Try a saxophone.

A well-played saxophone is alluring, even sensual. The sound is that of your lover, enticing you an intimate moment. The instrument is an easy one to start, but, like so many things that are worthwhile, difficult to master.

Saxophone is easy. I can learn every note on the instrument in two days.
