Mike-Quadrino (Saxophonist) Mike is a professional tenor and alto saxophonist born and raised on Long Island, NY. Mike was handed his first saxophone at the age of 8 only because Sam Ash didn’t rent bassoons (Dad’s first choice for Mike). The rest they say, is history. During his high school years, Mike lied about his age and played his first professional gigs with some of Long Island's finest local bands where the exposure led to a career as a freelance studio musician that continues to this day. Mike was a staple in the Long Island local club seen for years playing at numerous clubs, concert halls, catering facilities, and regional events. Mike's career culminated in the early 90's when he performed for 5 years with the Late Show Band... then the babies came. After a brief hiatus (18 years) where Mike focused on a successful career in real estate and parenting, Mike is now back at it, loving every minute of his second childhood as he joins forces with one of Long Islands top party bands “Killin Time”.
