OK, before you laugh, here are some facts you might not know about Kenny G. The saxophonist born as Kenneth Gorelick graduated from the University of Washington and has sold more than 75 million records. He’s a master at circular breathing, a difficult technique that landed him in the Guinness World Records when he held a single note for 45 minutes. And he’s leaned into his cheesy bona fides, taking potshots at his easy listening past on social media. So yeah, he’s a good musician, and we predict that his Northern Quest show is going to convert some new fans who had no concept of his undeniable musical dexterity. Expect to hear some holiday classics as well.
