Introducing: Sendi Wessel
My name is Sendi Wessel, I am 16 years old and I have been playing the saxophone for about 5 years. I started playing when my father, also a saxophone player, asked me if I wanted to give it a try. The moment I tried it, a whole new world opened for me. From that moment on, I knew that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
My role models are Gerald Albright, Scott Hamilton, Dick Oatss, Ben Webster and Candy Dulfer. I grew up with jazz music and I still love this style. Along the way, I also discovered a few styles that were completely new to me, such as Soul, Funk, Country, and recently also Reggae and Ska. I really love all these styles and am very happy that I got to know them all.
Being introduced to Ska/Reggae music by The Roosterz has been one of my most exciting discoveries in a long time. I really enjoy playing in this awesome band with these very nice people and I hope we will be playing together for many years to come.
