This has been one hell of a con. I played sax for at least 7 hours every day, starting with the monster pre-reg line on Thursday. A very enthusiastic thanks to everyone that stopped by to chat, cracked a smile, tapped a foot, selected a song, or listened to me play. Thank you!
Finally made enough time to do some practice over the year, and finally bringing my saxophone to Fanime. The playlist so far:

Question 1: As you can see, the list is a bit old school. Does anyone have requests or suggestions for a wandering sax player? I have a few weeks until the con, and I will be practicing every day. A: Thanks for all the requests! I will work hard and do my best to play each and every one at the con!
Question 2: Anyone out there know of an obscure anime character that plays sax other than Midvalley, Epic Sax Guy, and Gren? I would like to cosplay, but it seems like these three are done to death. A: Wow, Ren Jinguji from Ota no Prince-Sama and Igaram from OnePiece added to my cosplay list. Serious Thanks!
Question 3: Is there any kind of nerdy musician gathering in the works? I know there was a small group of drummers/guitar players last year, and I heard about some live music going on at Iguana's down the street from the convention center. I would love to coordinate a jam session with music minded anime/game nerds. A: Confirmed that Iguana's will have live music/open mic Thursday nite starting at 8pm. I will be there! ^_^TL;DR:
I am a sax player looking for song requests, cosplay suggestions, and a possible meetup with other nerdy musicians. Hit me up!
