DJ-Saxophonist is a musical initiative of saxophonist and producer Carlo Banning. After he finished his education at the academy of music in Amsterdam, he played in several cover bands, on festivals and big events, in the theatre and in clubs. In 2007 he decided to combine his broad stage experience and musical diversity in the innovative live concepts DJ-Saxophonist, Beatsclassics, Loungeclassics and Jazzclassics.
DJ-Saxophonist is suitable for parties, (company) gatherings, weddings and other events, where the music is carefully engineered to make sure that at the end of the evening the dance floor will be packed. DJ-Saxophonist bookings are either for an entire evening (20:30 until 01:00), during which the saxophonist plays as much as the atmosphere and tracks require, or for another period of time that we can discuss. We play tracks like ‘Destination Unknown’, ‘Vandaag’ (Bakermat), ‘The Man With The Red Face’, ‘Saxobeat’ and ‘Show Me Love’ (remix). It’s also possible to request extra tracks from the clubbing and house scene.
The performance could be preceded by Loungeclassics,a live formation where saxophone player Carlo Banning improvises on modern lounge tracks. The guests will be put into the right mood by the music.
DJ-Saxophonist consists in the basic setting of two people: a DJ and a saxophonist. Below we will introduce our regular DJs and saxophone players. All the musicians have attended an academy of music and the DJs that we use in the DJ-Saxophonist concept are all people with skills that exceed ‘just putting on a record’.
