— I’ve been playing for a long time, and it’s still a blast.–
jonathan sanson
husband, dad, musician, artist

My core musical beliefs:

  • Always play & musically say something new.
  • Never give less than 100% on the gig.
  • Two people listening are just as important as two thousand.

John Waldrop, reveiwer for the MetroWest Daily News noted,
“Jonathan Sanson … the pianist … is hot.”
