Hi, my name is Charley and I am that “Old Dog” pictured playing the sax. I have been playing the saxophone since the age of 10 and professionally for the last 30 years.
Over the years I have had the distinct pleasure and honor of performing at venues throughout New York - including Birdland - with jazz greats such as Ted Brown, Connie Crothers, Virg Dzurinko, Kazzrie Jaxen, Roger Mancuso and Ratzo Harris.
In 2015, I took my love for saxophones to a different level by founding the musical instrument company Old Dog New Saxophones.
My company is passionate about sourcing and selling only the finest quality saxophones available - saxophones that match our personal criteria for sound, craftsmanship, and reliability. We know that these criteria are vital to a musician’s ability to perform at the highest level - whether you’re a young student ready to “graduate” from your school-issued instrument or a seasoned professional looking for a replacement or upgrade.
