Greetings Modesto Friends,

Are you ready for some of the smoothest sax sounds ever?

Grammy award-winning Saxophonist Kenny G will make his way to the Gallo Center for one unforgettable night. He will perform a number of his hits from his extensive career such as “Songbird,” “Forever In Love” and “Silhouette.” Kenny G has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the business during his legendary career, ranging from Whitney Houston to Weezer and also appeared in pop superstar Katy Perry’s video for her single “Last Friday Night.” The performance will also feature tracks off his newest album “Brazilian Nights.”
