Virtuoso Tenor Saxophone VIRT2004B and Curved Soprano Saxophone SOCUR445

As a Music Business graduate of the Moores School of Music at the University of Houston Zach was fortunate to be able to study with saxophone performance and recording artist Woody Witt, and be a member of the University's Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Noe Marmolejo. Other studies during his tenure at U of H took place at the university's Bauer School of Business where he earned a Minor in Marketing. Prior to arriving at U of H, Zach studied under popular Houston jazz saxophonist Martin Langford and Doug Skinner of Texas State University in San Marcos. 

Zach has extensive experience performing as a solo artist as well as part of jam bands, big bands, jazz combos, wind ensembles, and smaller chamber ensembles. He is the saxophonist for the Houston based Jud Johnson Band and founding member and Marketing Director of my.Records, an independent label in Houston. After becoming the only local band to be given the honor to headline at Houston's House of Blues, the JJB has since frequented the House of Blues stage drawing crowds of more than 1,200 and growing. Since joining the JJB, Zach has been fortunate to work with some of the finest talents the music industry has to offer from Houston to the New England states and Los Angeles. He’s shared studios with producers, engineers, and musicians responsible for the success of Jason Mraz, Lifehouse, Prince, Usher, and more.  His performances take place on large stages like House of Blues and Hard Rock Cafe as well as smaller jazz clubs, major television networks like FOX, ABC, and CBS, and radio stations in the Houston area. Performing in a variety of different groups has placed  him on stage with some of the greatest of today's musicians including jazz greats Bill Evans, Vincent Herring, Conrad Herwig, and Jon Faddis as well as popular artists Edwin McCain, Green River Ordinance, Lucinda Williams and more.
