"Stimulating Portland's music scene since 2009"

Need a little more spice in your life? How about getting your groove on with an evening of Group Sax?
  • All saxophones, all the time
  • As many as nine musicians ... plus one drummer
  • Five different sizes of saxophones (including one you probably haven't seen before)
  • The sweetest sounds this side of heaven!

Our collection of trans-saxuals plays to the beat of a different conically shaped horn with an eclectic mix of jazz, rock, swing, ragtime, and more. You name it - we play it!

Sax in the City performs regularly throughout the Portland Metro area, highlighted by the annual Sax in the City extravaganza at Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square.

So slip into your saxiest threads and spend an evening (or dare we suggest a little afternoon delight?) with Sax in the City. Even better, book us for your event, company, neighborhood, or party - you'd be surprised how reasonably priced Group Sax can be!

Sax in the City at Pioneer Courthouse Square

Tubas have enchanted Oregonians with Tuba Christmas for years. And while we do love tubas, well, we feel it's time for our favorite horns to have their moment in the sun. Yes, in the sun — during Portland's spectacular summer weather, when we can be laid back and comfy, and (most important) we have an excuse to wear shades! And what better place to party than in Portland's living room, Pioneer Courthouse Square?

Since August 2009, Sax in the City has celebrated each summer in Pioneer Courthouse Square. Sign up for the Friends of the Bands Newsletter for information about this year's PCS edition and other performances.

Watch out Tuba Christmas, because here comes
Sax in the City!
