Quincy Sanders is not alone in wanting the pandemic to go away.
The Fort Wayne saxophonist-songwriter-music teacher-studio musician-live performer has seen the number of gigs he performs dwindle to a few wedding receptions and private parties. He’s even had to look for jobs outside the Fort Wayne area.
“I know that COVID-19 has affected a lot of people. In fact, a friend of mine normally plays at venues across the country and in Europe. But with the travel restrictions, she now has no work at all,” Sanders says. “I toured the Midwest the last three summers with her, but not this year. I guess I’m fortunate to be able to stay somewhat active and be able to make ends meet … so far. A lot of the gigs have been outside where it’s easier to social distance.”
