O Alan has distinguished himself as a musician and saxophonist with great insight and ingenuity, by bringing the #SaxOpeal Experience* to the electro/deep-house scene in the Middle East. It all started in 2010, in Cyprus Ayia Napa where he played at the Soho Club for two summers. Since then, O has played along international Djs in Dubai, Qatar, Jordan, Prague, Morocco, Algeria, Abu Dhabi, Egypt, Kuwait, KSA, Austria and Lebanon and now shares his passion across the region.
O's music career started early in life. As a child, he played guitar, percussion, piano, bass, and many more instruments until he found his passion for the long curved metal tube. He started lessons at the Lebanese Conservatory of Music then took online courses with one of the best sax player in the USA, and many intensive courses with international sax players here in Lebanon and Prague (Czech Republic).
The jubilant entertainer has been performing with 8eart Entertainment (www.8eart.com) since 2001 playing numerous styles: Soul, Jazz, Latin, Rhythm, and Blues. Last year, O founded a new band take5 where he also plays Funk, Soul, Jazz, Bossanova, Blues and Pop. And recently he started performing with Red Bull playing both in Kuwait and Oman, a dream in his music career.
* #TheSaxOpealExperience: Inspired by an idea from Prague, The SaxOpeal Experience is playing the sax live with electro/deep-house music along side international DJ's.
The witty Sax player is also an extreme sports freak. Sport is his other passion, just after participating in the Arab Championship in Egypt; he won the Lebanese Championship in sailing back in 2009 and 2010. He took 3rd place in the Lebanese River Kayak Championship and went to Iran to participate in the West-Asian Competition. A watersports enthusiast, he is also a scuba diving and wakeboarding instructor. Should you ever lose him, you will find him chilling on one of our many beaches!Read More
