About this Event

"In an era where most have learned to play music in a school, Mr. Collins is one of those increasingly rare musicians who learned to play, on the bandstand."

The saxophone player of choice for famous artists Gregg Allman, Levon Helm, Donald Fagen, and Little Feat, Woodstock-area resident Jay Collins played on 2 Grammy-winning recordings with Helm, and a platinum-selling DVD with the Allman Brothers Band (Live at the Beacon Theater). Jay is also featured on horns and arrangements on the (posthumously released) Grammy-nominated Gregg Allman album, “Southern Blood” (2017). Mr. Collins was musical director for the Gregg Allman Band for 5 years.

Jay is also a singer and keyboardist, and his talents as a singer-songwriter have emerged and deepened with so much exposure to these legendary musicians.

On vocals, his granite pipes prompted Time Out NY to note that, “His soulful ‘croak’ definitely deserves to be heard!”

And Blues Revue said, “Jay Collins plays a hot saxophone, but he covers a lot more ground than that….”

Fronting his own bands on gigs throughout the Tri-State area, as well as continuing to perform and arrange with the horn section at Levon Helm’s Ramble in Woodstock NY, Jay also has been recently touring with the legendary band, Little Feat. Jay continues to be in high demand as a horn-arranger and session player for the many studios in the NY area.

Collins is also proud of his work with other famous musicians like Jackson Browne, Michael McDonald, Ray LaMontagne, Melissa Etheridge, British soul man James Hunter, Boz Scaggs, latin-jazz drummer Bobby Sanabria, and jazz artists such as Jacky Terrasson, Andrew Hill, and LeRoy Vinnegar.

His current group, Jay Collins and the Northern Resistance, is composed of the finest young rock and roll players in upstate NY. Their new release,

“The John Brown EP”, came out in the fall of 2016.
