Marion Meadows To Join Sax Pack

Marion Meadows' saxophone will replace Steve Cole's later this year during the Sax Pack festival started by another saxophonist, Jeff Kashiwa.

Two other dates are confirmed – May 27 at the JazzTrax Lake Tahoe Smooth Summer Jazz Festival and July 2 at the Jazz Under the Stars festival in Las Vegas.

“Marion is a powerful presence on stage,” says Kashiwa, who created the Sax Pack last year. “He can captivate an audience with his sense of style and groove.”

Steve Cole, an original member of the Sax Pack, will perform his last gig as part of the tour March 19 at the Berks Jazz Festival in Pennsylvania.
