One saxophone is great but four are even better, and that’s what you’ll hear during a midweek show from The Side Project. The sax quartet earned their stripes playing New York subways. Their debut album, “#ThisPartySax,” was released in 2015 and the followup is due out in July. Be sure to request their fabulous take on The Bee Gees’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” not to mention their dreamy version of Bjork’s “Joga” and their super fun rendition of the theme from “Ghostbusters.”
