Saxotopia Quartet was formed at California Lutheran College by the then head of the music department, Herr Doktor Dan Geeting.
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.
“Cultural enlightenment and entertainment is our goal,” says Dr Geeting, and the audiences appreciate the expertise with which the members of Saxotopia Quartet perform anything from old classics to modern jazz.
All of these musicians are Ventura County residents and like to perform close to home. Thus far, they've resisted the clamor of our many fans to “take it on the road” (and they really want the group to go).
I laughed. I cried. I farted.
The reviews have been overwhelming. Saxotopia Quartet fans turn out to be an enthusiastic crowd; especially towards the end of the show.
It was almost worth missing Matlock!
