SAGUARO SUNSET BAND
Country and Rock & Roll Music
Our Band is now a 5-piece group. We're available for bookings here in the Valley of the Sun in Phoenix, Arizona and surrounding areas year round. Dances, shows, festivals, corporate events, private parties, clubs, we've played them all! We've been a 'working band' here since 2002. We know what folks want to hear.
My name is Paul Sammons, MSgt (ret), USAF. I am a retired US Air Force Band Guitarist/Lead Vocalist. I was principal trombonist with the West Virginia University Concert Band. Then I auditioned and spent 20+ years as a vocalist/guitarist with USAF bands, playing shows in over 28 countries. My last tour of duty was as the Sarge in Charge of the USAF Europe Band combo GALAXY, a position I held for over 5-years. I had the privilege of performing with many well known celebrities: Tennessee Ernie Ford, Dionne Warwick, Anita Bryant, Bob Hope, etc. After I retired from the Air Force, I worked as a musician on Princess Cruise Ships for a year on the Crown and Dawn Princess. I have settled (finally) here in the Valley and started our group in 2002.
But let me tell you about this band! There is some serious talent in this group of seasoned musicians. I used to audition players for US Air Force bands and I had the opportunity of working with many fine players on Princess ships. I am a little picky about who I work with. This group PLAYS!
Our music is a blend of old and new Country Western, with some of that good old Rock & Roll, and a few 'Standards'. A Southwest Sound of music that has been and is popular here in the Valley of the Sun in Arizona. Whether it's playing a song by George Strait, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, or classics like Hey Good Lookin, & Mustang Sally...the talent shines through in any style.
