Saxophobia offers audiences a rare glimpse at some of the most unusual saxophones ever made and pays tribute to some of the great jazz legends who contributed to the development of jazz and popularity of the sax.

Accompanied by piano, bass, and drums, and featuring Rob Verdi on sax, the presentation explores over a half century of classic jazz melodies. Over 10 different instruments will be featured, including a tiny curved sopranino, slide sax, connosax, plastic alto, straight tenor, and even a 6-1/2-foot-tall contrabass saxophone. Rob will be joined by some of his friends in the Side Street Strutters Jazz Band. Add a bit of Yakety Sax, Tequila, and Pink Panther just for fun and you’ve got an educational and entertaining performance that tells you everything you wanted to know about sax but were afraid to ask.
