Russell Ford - The Better Than Mobile, Better Than Landline Saxophone
Everybody has a telephone. Everybody has a cellphone. But does everybody have a saxophone? Nyet. (That's a fancy word in another language for "No.") But you know what? Your YouChoose Band has a saxophone, and it comes with great long-distance rates (stand right next to it or stand outside - same great sound, same great price). Our saxophone is dialed up via the one and only Russell Ford, who joins YouChoose with one goal in mind: a clear, crisp sound.
Rather than let us go on and on about what a quality musician and person Russell Ford is, we asked him some questions. You're going to love his responses. Russell, please begin to rock:
Name: Russell Ford
Main instrument: Bari Sax
Secondary instruments: Alto and Tenor Sax
Current home town: Parsippany, NJ
Day job: Environmental Engineer
How long been playing: 36 years
Favorite style(s) of music: Jazz (Bebop)
Schooling: B.S. Chemical Engineering – Syracuse University; M.E. and PhD Environmental Engineering – Stevens Institute of Technology. I am a product of the New York City School system which is where I learned how to play.
Bands/groups of note? Hanover Wind Symphony, Kings Road Swing Band
Special note: Russell comes to us through a cool new association we have with the Hanover Wind Symphony. We're going to play an all-request Symphony Rock '70s Night in June with the Hanover Wind Symphony, and Russell's probably going to doing some double-duty, playing with your YouChoose Band and then playing with the combo of YouChoose Band & Hanover Wind Symphony. Got a favorite '70s song that has some great sax? Think hard. Our request hotline will open sooner than you think.
