San Francisco Saxophone Quartet: Guestbook

Chris & Matti Christensen

April 3, 2017

Wow! I can't believe I found the Quartet on YouTube! Playing the various tracks was sheer joy. Matti & I first saw you perform more than 35 years ago in San Francisco. We hope you are doing well. We moved from Petaluma to the island of Maui about seven years ago. Our son (who still lives in Petaluma) first came to your house near City College in SF when he was literally a "babe in arms." He turns 36 in November!

If this SFSQ is the same quartet that have been playing since before 1983, my husband and I saw you playing at a toy store in the Haight in SF. We decided right then and there to have your group play at our garden wedding in Walnut Creek. Today we are celebrating out 34th anniversary. I decided to look your group up. To my wonderful surprise I found your website. I had bought your CD a while ago and unfortunately, loaned it to a friend of mine. She has yet returned it to me. Good luck to you all and your music is still so lovely and beautiful! Our Garden Wedding was just lovely 34 years ago thanks to you all. Sincerely, Alice

Since I first heard the Quartet in front of Shrieves in the late seventies, I have enjoyed all of their CDs and relish the sound! But it is at Christmas that they add most to the joy in my life, their Christmas with the San Francisco Saxaphone Quartet now a family tradition that stops all 29 members of our family in their tracks when it starts to play! Thanks for the memories and the joy!

Heard y'all first time yesterday on Seattle's KING-FM;


I hope my bro. in Chapel Hill, N.C. will enjoy your music as much as I did from that airplay. At 65, he still plays his sax & clarinet w/ other musicians for pure enjoyment.

to Bill Aron: I played behind you (2nd tenor sax) at Alameda's War Memorial this past Tuesday, during your solo piece. Although I couldn't hear you from behind, a good friend in the audience said you "were terrific". Congratulations and thanks.
PS: I have a copy of your group's "Straight from the Street" CD in my car player. You guys are great.

Please convey my greetings and best wishes to David Henderson. We were classmates and performers together. He was my accompanist extraordinaire! Would love to reconnect after all of these years.

I found you in a book by Jennifer L Scott (Lessons from Madame Chic) and she made you sound fabulous. She was right--the sample was great.

A friend of mine turned me on to your quartet and I can not get enough of your music. Great work on all CD's .
I also play in a sax quartet an your group has been a great motivator for all of us. Would like to know what set up does David Schrader have on his soprano, and wondering if you sell the arrangement Debussy: Clair de lune. hope to hear from you.Thanks Bobby

I came across your site after doing a Google search for other wedding musicians like myself. Just wanted to put my two cents in and let you know that I enjoyed listening to your music samples.

My friends and I used to come to the San Francisco Centre just to hear you play in 1992, 1993. We loved you!!!!

I found the name of the pianist David Schrader in a book by Sara Paretsky. But I know David Schrader as a saxophoneplayer. So I found your site on the internet. We saw the quartet in S.F. (yes, on the street and made some pictures) in 1992 while visiting the USA for a long vacation and bought the CD "Tails of the City' at that time. We still listen very regularly to your music. How is the quartet doing?

Saw you perform last March 16th in San Fran. It was worth the trip all the way from Cleveland, Ohio. Great show !
