Nick Rail Music

Jon Andersen has enjoyed playing music nearly his entire life.  A jazz saxophonist, Jon played in a number of small and large bands over the years and found work with several noted musicians in and around his neighborhood, Santa Barbara.  When he was approached by his longtime friend Nick Rail, to assist with his band instrument business, Jon jumped at the opportunity.  For over 25 years Jon has hit the road for Nick, calling on band directors over a very large part of southern California, and enjoying each visit and new friend he makes.  When he reflects back on the hundreds of kids he played a role in getting proper instruments to learn on, Jon is very proud indeed.
