About Me:
Neil is a New York City-based saxophonist with roots in jazz and ska. From his native Texas, he attained a big saxophone sound and a degree in Jazz Studies from the renowned University of North Texas in 2000. His career as a performer has taken him from Dallas to Montreal, London, and now Brooklyn. Neil has played thousands of shows in over 25 countries (including the Montreal International Jazz Festival, Pohoda Festival, Glastonbury Festival and Vans Warped Tour) with Canada's The Planet Smashers, NYC ska pioneers The Toasters, and with Motown legend Martha Reeves. Never one to be painted into any corners, Neil has been active in the jazz community wherever he lives and is an enthusiastic educator. He endorses Rico Reeds and Sennheiser Microphones.
