Vintage shooting star conn alto sax

This sax was made in the USA about 1970
Back then these saxes were made of a solid brass so they had a nice dark rich tone.
They do not make them like that today.
It does not look too pretty but it has a fantastic sound.

JUST CLEANED AND SANITIZED.
Completely serviced shop tested and play tested .
Plays very well

Here is my Bio:
I PLAY SAX, CLARINET, FLUTE,HARMONICA AND UKULELE
and also do some back up vocals
I started playing clarinet in 1951

I learned from Mr. Henri Bernard,
A symphony orchestra conductor, from Germany.
I started playing saxophone in 1952
I joined a classical symphony orchestra in Boston 1953.
I started playing the flute in 1970.
I started playing jazz saxophone with Big Band conductor
Mr. Gerald Cooper at Berkley College of Music in 1978.
I had my own band in 1980 called “Dominic’s Music.”

We played old standards and pop tunes:Like Beatles, Bob Dylan, Neil Young etc.
We did weddings, private parties and nightclubs in and around the Boston area.
The last band I was with is called
“IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR”
We played all classic rock music.

Their best gig was at the Hatch Shell in Boston.

My last major concert was for a host of pretty impressive guests,Including
former President Bill Clinton while he was still in office.
Senator John Kerry
and Senator Ted Kennedy were also present.
I Played in the 22-piece John Payne saxophone choir at the Park Plaza Castle in Boston.

Security was so tight,The secret service did background checks on each musician
And we had to leave our instruments at the door to be searched by white house staff before we could enter the building.

As soon as we started playing President Clinton pointed to us and yelled

“I love that band. That’s my band”
