Led by Steve Straus playing soprano sax, the group also includes Gail Ferr, baritone sax, Ray Hebert, tenor sax, and Thomas Van Duyne, alto sax.
Straus is a retired dentist, plays throughout the year with the Riverboat Stompers, a popular jazz band, and sometimes with other groups, in addition to Generations Saxophone Quartet.
