David Sanborn to Play State Theatre

Appreciators of jazz will be able to catch sax-man David Sanborn at the State Theatre tomorrow night.

Jazz organist Joey DeFancesco will open the show at 8. Tickets cost $30 for balcony, $35 for orcehstra and $40 for Gold Circle.

Sanborn is often identified primarily with smooth jazz, but he has played a variety of styles, sometimes blending elements of R&B, rock or pop into his music. He might not be Sergio Flores, but he does boast six Grammys, eight gold albums and one platinum one, which is pretty cool.

So check out the State Theatre tomorrow if jazz sax or baby-makin’ music is your thing. And check out this clip for a taste of Sanborn’s sound.

Switch the Right Decision

I’m probably the only person who has spent my entire college career almost evenly divided between working for The Daily Collegian and Onward State. I feel like this has given me a unique perspective on Penn State’s media scene. And I’ve learned a great deal from both media outlets.
