Tribute

Zane Musa

(Jan. 1, 1979 – Feb. 2, 2015)

RIP to legendary saxophonist and a genuine friend of many.  A founding member of this band, Zane was an incomprehensible musical force of nature that elevated any project he was a part of.  Among others, he also played with Jimmy Kimmel Live, Carson Daily Show, Christina Aguilera, Arturo Sandoval, John Mayer, and Macy Gray. He is remembered greatly by this band and the jazz scene at large.
