I don't know any with saxophone, but I know Ephel Duath use a trombone.

They're good live as well. Even though I missed the first half of their set.... this was ages ago and highly irrelevant.

Even though its a different genre, it can basically have a lot of "rock" similarities, along with punk. Check out some Ska bands! To give you an idea of what they sound like, think up-stroked reggae guitar, with a whole horn section(usually).

Check out bands like:

Streetlight Manifesto
The Toasters
Catch 22
Reel Big Fish
Voodoo Glow Skulls
Big D and the Kids Table
The Slackers

Shadows Within

Dried Muffin Remnants

...or any ska band for that matter

Course Of Nature used a saxophone on one of their songs...

Of course, you could also try almost any jazz group...real jazz, none of that Kenny G mass produced shit.

Dave matthews band have one but i consider them more pop rock

09-19-2005, 03:16 PM
Some Warren Zevon tunes use it. The first one that leaps to my mind is the classic Excitable Boy.

Pink Floyd doesn't really utilize the sax at all, save a few songs....

That's what I mean. I don't listen to any bands with sax, except for the few moments in Pink Floyd.

If you want good Sax playing, you should check out the song "Who's Got the Number," by LAPD, Fieldy Arvizu is quite the sax player as well as a bassist, you can find it on the e-radio here: http://www.korntv.co.uk.

And trust me, I'm not trying to get you into Korn, LAPD was a Funk/Thrash band that Fieldy, Munky, and David were in before Korn, very very different.
