Someone ought to erect a monument to Pete Thomas for services to rock music

– MUSIC Magazine Dec 1983

Quite a remarkable statement on its own, but the fact that the person honoured in this way is not a guitar hero but a college trained sax player and composer is even more remarkable. Virgin Vision has recently paid Pete a further compliment when they asked him to make a saxophone instruction video for worldwide release.

But then Pete Thomas doesn’t mess around. One of his first professional gigs was with Fats Domino. Pete is probably one of the first British musicians to feature with this 11piece New Orleans band both as a soloist and as a member of the legendary horn section.

‘Tone without Tears’

Pete will be leading the masterclass and discuss practicing tone studies without getting bored. He will also perform and demonstrate using Legere reeds. You also get thee chance to try out the reeds during the evening.

So bring your sax and try these incredible reeds for yourself!

The event is packed with activities such as:

• Tone without Tears – How to practice tone studies without getting bored

• Pete Thomas will perform and demonstrate using Legere reeds,

• Topics to be discussed will include; benefits of synthetic reeds, specifically Legere; explanation of the different types and their use; synthetic reeds versus cane reeds; performance applications

• Opportunity for all audience members to try a selection of Legere reeds

• GIVEAWAYS and VOUCHERS will be handed out on the night!

BRING YOUR SAX AND MOUTHPIECE - Opportunity for all audience members to try a selection of Legere reeds

The Charity - BAND WITHOUT BOUNDARIES

Based in West Kent, Band without Boundaries is an inclusive fusion music band where musicians with disabilities play alongside non-disabled musicians to compose and perform their own music. As far as they are aware, there is no other band like it in the county. Led by Berklee trained saxophonist Joe Browne, they were formed seven years ago and have proved so successful that in December last year they registered as the charity Arts Without Boundaries in order to expand their work across the community. In February this year the band won two top community awards for their inclusive and innovative work. They will be performing alongside national and local musicians on 9th November at Trinity Arts Theatre, Tunbridge Wells.
