Rob Verdi’s Saxophobia
April 11, 2017
“Saxophobia” brings to the stage a rare and unique glimpse at some of the most unusual saxophones ever manufactured and the classic melodies that popularized this warmly embraced and versatile musical instrument. The show explores over a half century of jazz classics. Audiences will be introduced to over a dozen variations of Adolphe Sax’s 1846 invention including a curved sopranino, plastic alto, straight tenor, connosax, slide sax, bass and even a rare 6 ft contrabass sax.
Like baseball and apple pie, jazz is an American icon. Over the past century, the saxophone has played an important role in the development of this indigenous art form. Hear popular jazz standards and whimsical novelty selections, see an impressive array of rare instruments, and absorb a bit of saxophone history. “Saxophobia” brings to your concert stage an extraordinary educational, historical and entertaining presentation of the saxophone.

“What I’m doing now is taking those big arena type songs I sang with Awesome and mixing them with the joyful vibe of African music. The ultimate goal is to make people feel good and give them a few moments of uplift, which as I’ve discovered over the years, can have transforming and even lifesaving potential. I’m glad I finally listened to my mom, and it feels good to be home.”
