Saxophonist with Greg Allman Band
Being a reliable soloist and flexible section player has carried Art around the world providing opportunities to perform, record and jam with a wide variety of well-known musicians, producers and music legends.
Bobby “Blue” Bland, Wayne Newton, Justin Timberlake, Jonny Lang, Lucero, Galactic, the Memphis Horns, Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, the Allman Brothers Band, Robert Walter, Jim Dickinson, Robert Randolph, The Bo-keys, Deke Dickerson, John Nemeth, Mason Ruffner, Jeff Powell, and the Coasters have all called on Edmaiston for stage and studio work.
Art was thrilled to be asked to anchor the horn section for JJ Grey & MOFRO at the beginning of 2007 and can be seen and heard playing saxophone on stage and on all of the band’s recordings through 2015.
In January of 2014, Edmaiston was asked to participate in the filming and recording of Gregg Allman’s concert at the Grand Opera House in Macon, Georgia. The combination DVD/CD “Gregg Allman Live: Back To Macon, GA” was released in August of 2015 to rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Art joined Allman’s touring band as a full-time member in May of 2014 for lengthy tours across the U.S. and Europe.
When off the road and back home in Memphis, Edmaiston plays in several local bands and is active in the recording studios as well.
Along with having several years of experience playing and studying the saxophone, Art has also been employed at Amro Music Store, Inc. in Memphis, TN since 1993. Four years experience in retail band and orchestral instrument sales and sixteen years as a woodwind technician specializing in saxophone repair has given Edmaiston knowledge in key areas of his profession. His time at Amro Music has afforded the opportunity to befriend most musicians in the Mid-South area. Performing live has been his main focus through the years while working with active professional sax players as a repairman and gear consultant.
