BEATBox SAX Fifty-Fifty TOUR with Derek Brown

Nov 16 2018

8:00 p.m.

Alumni Music Center, Recital Hall

Free and FAL Event

From his 30+ million views across social media to his interviews on international television and NPR’s Weekend Edition, Billboard-charting saxophonist/innovator Derek Brown and his one-of-a-kind solo “BEATBoX SAX” project has been exploding across the world music scene.

As described by jazz journalist/historian Scott Yanow, "Brown performs unaccompanied solos that occasionally make one recall Bobby McFerrin in his early prime and the great saxophonist Eddie Harris . . . utilizing slap-tonguing, circular breathing, a wide interest in musical styles and dazzling coordination to create rather unique music."

Derek's latest project is an epic undertaking: his FiftyFifty Tour has him performing at least one gig in each of the 50 states in nine months (Aug. '18-May '19). Traveling from state to state in an RV with his wife Rachel, they will be regularly vlogging and posting about music and life on the road. Follow them at
