Update: I was badly injured a couple of years back. I was able to play after extensive therapy, but I couldn't play or sing at the caliber that I'm used to delivering so I put the horn down for a couple of years. I miss it like you can't believe, though, and now I'm working on it once again. I'll put the band back together once I feel I'm up to par and can play a whole night. Probably next year. Until then, you may see me out at jams from time to time.

"Batting it out of the park with nasty juke joint saxophone."-- Blue Suede News
Honkin', growlin', screamin', and wailin', Joey the Saint’s hallmark tenor style has become a fixture around the Pacific Northwest from roadside bars and juke joints to the Gorge Amphitheatre. His aggressive sound, electric stage presence, and showmanship hail back to the 40's and 50's honkers and shouters.
Joey cut his teeth in the Seattle Blues and R&B scene as a saxophonist and vocalist with the internationally acclaimed jump blues combo Tim Casey & the Bluescats. He has performed with such legends as Frankie Lee, Charlie Musselwhite, Rusty Zinn, John Nemeth, Mitch Woods, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and the JB’s, and has been nominated for Best Horn by the Washington Blues Society for his work with local heroes including Polly O'Keary, Nick Vigarino, and The Fabulous Wailers. A veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom, Joey was critically injured on deployment in 2012 and has been undergoing physical rehabilitation. He intends to resume playing in 2016.
