There is something about the saxophone that gets to most of us. Whatever it is, get ready for Saturday when Max the Sax will be playing at the Lush Beach Bar in Larnaca.
Max the Sax – who is really Markus Ecklmayr – is an Austrian musician who is part of both the Parov Stelar Band and the Parov Stelar Trio’s show. With influences from the jazz, funk and groove genres, it is the first time he will be playing in Cyprus.
As far as saxophone players go, Ecklmayr is what one would call a rock star. He has an unmistakable style.
Expect to fall in love with the saxophone all over again with this solo show, during which the man with the sax will play completely new jazzy interpretations of classic club tunes.
Max the Sax
Live performance by the sax player. August 8. Lush Beach Bar, Makenzie, Larnaca. 10pm. Tel: 70-008089
