Jason Justice stepped onstage for the first time at the age of 8. After that there was no stopping him from his passion, his path, in a way. That pathway has always led to the stage.
Jason's love of the theatre began in 1973 at Oral Roberts University Department of Broadcasting. In 1977 a saxophone was placed in his hands by his parents, and the whole family braced themselves for the caucophony of honks and squeaks that were destined to come. But only tunes and clear notes came as his mother, Janice, recalls. And thanks to a steady diet of 50s and 60s pressings from the Verve catalog, the direction was clear. Or was it?
Because of this love for the theatre, Jason spent the 1980s performing in regional and dinner theatres in Texas and Colorado. His credits include Perchik from Fiddler on the Roof, Nicholas from Nicholas Nickelby, Ernst Ludwig from Cabaret, Arthur from Camelot, and Leading Player in Pippin. He acted as music director and pit musician for Bernstein's West Side Story and director/music director of Sondheim's Side by Side. But through the over 40 productions Jason participated in, the saxophone has always called to him; in many ways, his true love.
Since 1990, Jason has played in many bands, from Dixieland to African Zouk (as saxophonist with the regionally renown Mondo Bizzaro), R&B (sax and vocals with Diana Castro and the Big Time), to jazz, cumbia to classical. Jason is a student of sound.
