In “SAXsational-The Next Generation” Verdi explores a new generation of popular music. Verdi received his musical training at Arizona State University School of Music in 1984. After a year of teaching junior high band, he relocated to Los Angeles to accept a full-time position with the Entertainment Division of the Walt Disney Company. His jazz band, the “Side Street Strutters,” entertained guests at Disneyland for 22 years, and also presented formal concerts and symphony pops programs in theaters and performing arts centers throughout the U.S.
After the success of his previous touring shows, Saxophobia and SAXsational, Rob created SAXsational-The Next Generation, which explores a variety of musical styles, including popular jazz standards of the swing era, iconic rhythm and blues selections and trendy, contemporary pop hits.
