Washington, DC’s own saxophone phenomenon Brian Lenair is the latest edition to the Sax Dakota family. He is a musically gifted sax player who treats the saxophone as an extension of himself. His love

of music began at the age of eight with his most profound influence,
his Dad, who is also a talented saxophonist. His first music instructor encouraged his passion for music and thus began the career of



Brian formed his first band called “4 1/2 Hours” and after four years with the group, he joined “Spur of theMoment”, a popular Washington,  DC-based band. As the front man for over 15 years, he astounded

audiences with his showmanship and pure talent performing on his saxophone. During that time, the band recorded two CDs, which prominently featured Brian’s talent as a saxophonist and composer.

Despite the growing success of “Spur of the Moment”, he moved forward to pursue a solo career. In 2004, he produced his first CD entitled “The Journey”. Creating this CD gave Brian the opportunity
to showcase his talents as an extraordinary saxophonist, producer, entertainer, and songwriter.

Today, with over 25 successful years in the music industry, he is currently an independent recording jazz artist wowing audiences with his musical genius across the country! Brian has performed with national recording greats like, Will Downing, Maysa, Jean Carne, Billy Paul, Angela Bofill, Christopher Williams, Miki Howard, Glenn Jones, Al Jarreau, Tony Terry, Pieces of a Dream, Miles Jay, Grover Washington, Jr., Peabo Bryson, George Benson, the late Vesta and Phyllis Hyman plus many more.

His quotes “I believe that music gives us meaning and purpose. It is one of mankind’s greatest sources of love, truth, imagination, reflection and discovery. He also says, which is most important ,“Every time I play , I don't take it for granted. I play like it's my last time. Every breath I take, every note I play is to the Glory of God!”
