First cutting his teeth in San Francisco with the swing and ska revival scenes of the late nineties, Patrick Byers has not slowed since. After touring with Acme Swing Company and Lee Press-On and The Nails, he earned his Jazz Performance degree from Sonoma State University. Out of college, he made the switch to performing Afrobeat and world music, touring the country and beyond with many of the Bay Area's top Afrobeat bands. As the music industry changed and touring became less profitable, his focus switched to becoming one of the most in-demand baritone saxophonists in Northern California, as well as adding flute, guitar, percussion, and melodica to his arsenal. Specializing in Jazz, West African, Funk, Caribbean, Rock, Blues, and New Orleans style music, Patrick continues to play with a diverse group of musicians and bands.

From the subtle and sensual, to the fiery and fantastic, Patrick Byers displays a timeless breadth and style that is often lacking amongst today's modern musical landscapes.
