The Akron Civic Theatre will present David Sanborn Aug. 23 at 8 p.m.
Sanborn has released 24 albums, won six Grammy Awards, and has had eight Gold albums and one Platinum album. Having inspired countless other musicians, Dave has worked in many genres which typically blend instrumental pop, R&B and lately, more and more traditional jazz. He released his first solo album Taking Off in 1975, but has been playing the saxophone since before he was in high school when he was inspired by the great Chicago blues artists near his hometown of St. Louis.
Opening for Sanborn will be local jazz guitarist Dan Wilson.
All tickets are reserved and are $49 and $39. Tickets are available at the Akron Civic Theatre box office, by calling 330-253-2488 or online at www.akroncivic.com.
