Saxophonist Candy Dulfer (pictured) is coming to St. Louis to perform at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, May 21 at The Pageant.
As best as StLJN can tell, the Dutch-born saxophonist last appeared here in 2004 at the Saavis Center (now the Scottrade Center) as part of the backing band for Prince. Her most recent CD Funked Up and Chilled Out came out in 2009. Dulfer's show at The Pageant also will feature bassist/keyboardist/vocalist Chance Howard, a longtime member of her band, as the support act.
This show is being sponsored by The Smooth Jazz Cruise, which is presenting a pre-concert meet-and-greet with Dulfer. To attend, you must purchase a ticket in the "Gold Section" online from Ticketmaster before March 24 by using the promotion code "Candy". Tickets are priced from $29 to $49 via Ticketmaster and the Pageant box office.
