Oddest Event Request: "The oddest request I've had for a gig is when an agent called and said she had a client who wanted me to play solo sax on their honeymoon night, in their bedroom, while they consummated their marriage. Hire the band and you'll hear the rest of the story...."
Worst Memory at a Live Gig: "Most weddings are wonderful, right? But then there was the worst wedding toast I've ever heard, when the drunken father of the bride got up and said he hoped this marriage lasted longer than her last one.
