Canadian-born, David Aaron, generally stumbles along as a saxophonist, composer, arranger and producer and has scored music for a number of short films and live theater pieces, including works in the Fringe Theatre Festival. He also regularly works as a freelance saxophonist, including past and current stints with blues/punk innovators Dee Pop's Private World, Kaleta's Zozo Afrobeat, super-rockin' ska band, Bigger Thomas, international cabaret act, Les Funky Bitches Fantastique and New Orleans Mardi Gras collective, The Royal American Social Aid and Pleasure Club.

King Blues, all 3 of CBGB's performance spaces, as well as the 2013 CBGB Festival.
