Claude Lakey Woodwinds


April 2015 Claude Lakey Artist & Events Calendar

Posted by Nathan Nutter at  | 0 comments

April is looking to be a busy month for the Claude Lakey artist family! Check out this helpful calendar we've put together for those looking to get their fill of Sax-tastic live music in the Month of April. 


One of our favorite electronic music producers right now is GRiZ, who takes his hometown Motown influence and blends it with hard hitting drums, synths, sax licks, and other live elements into his signature blend of electro-soul/future funk music. He just released his Say It Loud album for free download on his website (!!!) and is currently on a US Tour, so check out to find a show in your area!

J. Boykin

Having played with such acts as John Legend, Doc Powell, and Frankie Beverly & Maze, J. Boykin's April 1st show is definitely one of the concerts that jazz saxophone fans in the L.A. area do not want to miss!

  • April 1st LIVE @ XEN Lounge- Los Angeles, CA

Frank Gratkowski

Our readers out there who dabble in the art-music/avant-garde genre of Saxophoning should definitely know who Frank Gratkowski is. This woodwind guru's playing is not for the faint of heart, but Frank's talent is undeniable.

Moon Hooch


Anyone who likes high-energy saxophone music will love Moon Hooch. These guys take hints and influence from modern dance music and apply them create an agressive and percussive sound they like to call "cave music." Don't take our word for it though, check them out on their current US tour! Go to to find a concert in your area!
