Bio

In 2009 The Sue Orfield Band was voted "Eau Claire's Best Jazz Band" by the Volume One Reader Poll. With influences that range from Johnny Cash to Johnny Coltrane, SOB plays music that defies categorization.

Sue Orfield plays the tenor saxophone with the whimsy of Sonny Rollins, the passion of Kurt Cobain, the soul of Bill Withers, and the joy of Ella Fitzgerald. Along with a compelling mastery of her instrument, Sue brings to the stage a powerful presence and a joy of all things musical.

Although Sue Orfield now resides in Northwestern Wisconsin, she was voted "Best Horn" by the Washington Blues Society for the years of 1999, 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2004, when she lived in Seattle.
