Jon with JLgrv

I play sax: Tenor, Alto, and Soprano. Since Fall 2012, I have been attending
Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.

Before attending Berklee, I played in a smooth jazz band:  3 AM Groove (click to learn more). Two other band members from 3 AM Groove also attend Berklee. We continue to compose, rehearse, and record together. We have been joined by other musicians at Berklee and have emerged as a new band: Jon Lawson and The Groove.
