‘King Tut’ tooter to tout talents at Steve’s Guitars

Steve’s Guitars in Carbondale presents another weekend of live music, beginning today with a valley saxophonist.Bryan Savage, of Glenwood Springs, will play at 8:30 p.m. Doors open at 8 p.m.”It has been a couple years since we got to hear Bryan play his sax in the room for a Night Plane reunion,” owner Steve Standiford said. “That night, he helped inspire our girl Shannon to pick up the sax, and she is playing still and having a great time.”Savage has logged years of studio work playing sax and flute on more than 20 major label releases for such artists as Al Stewart, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Steve Martin and many others. He has toured the U.S., Europe, Japan and Canada with Al Stewart, John Denver, Bonnie Raitt, Santana, Glen Frey, Eddie Money and Journey.Trumpet star Rick Braun produced Savage’s hit jazz song “Catfood,” which reached No. 2 on the national jazz radio singles charts in 1996. His sax work was featured on Steve Martin’s “King Tut,” which went gold for the No. 1-selling hit, along with TV appearances on Solid Gold, The Midnight Special and the Merv Griffin Show.Following Savage this weekend is guitarist Michael Gulezian at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.”Michael is constantly touring the country looking for adventure and great little places to play, like ours,” Standiford said. “He is a masterful guitar player who has the ability to sound like two or more guitarists playing at the same time. Incredible technique and a charming stage presence make for a great show.”Both shows are $10 at the door.
