About Crystal Brown ~ The Sax Lady
Crystal "SaxLady" Brown is a Regulatory Specialist for a chemical specialty company and a soulful saxophonist by night. After hearing saxophonist, Vernard Johnson, play "He Touched Me" at the age of 11, Crystal was determined to learn how to play sax. At the age of 15, Crystal, along with her brother, Charles (organist), and sister, Celeste (tenor saxophonist), formed "The Wilson Trio". For 15 years, they sang and played at various venues in Memphis and throughout the United States.
Life's challenges culminated in Crystal's decision to cease from playing the saxophone for over ten years, until she married the love of her life, Kenneth. She and Kenneth have a blended family of six beautiful children. After a few years with the newly formed family, Kenneth encouraged her to stir up the gift of music within. Since that time, Crystal has played for weddings, receptions, concerts, showers, etc. She has been guest artist for Arizona's Racial Reconciliation convention, The Grand Encampment conference in Fort Worth, TX, The United Supreme Council in Oklahoma, The National Coalition of 100 Black Women's Annual Fashion Show and many other events throughout the United States.
