About Me

I'm Bob Bartosik, native San Diego saxophonist. I started, a musician-based cooperative, to bring together the best real-life jazz musicians in Southern California. Together we provide top quality jazz entertainment to events in San Diego. represents hard-working local jazz musicians at the top of their craft. When you hire entertainment thru you're supporting the heart of the local San Diego music scene: working musicians, not event planners or management companies. By remaining a musician-based cooperative I can offer reasonable pricing for San Diego events. For more info please contact me via email at
