The Ryan Devlin Quintet features Gene Perla on bass, Adam Nussbaum on drums, Steve Korkya on saxophone and Mike Bond on piano, with Ryan Devlin on saxophone. One of the most electrifying young saxophonists on the scene today, Ryan Devlin, and his band take aim at the 70s jazz genres, influenced by artists like Steve Grossman, John Coltrane, Joe Henderson and Michael Brecker. Devlin and his quartet put their own modern spin on some of the classic tenor giants' arsenal of tunes and vocabulary. Coming off of his previous electric album Devlin is now touring with his new quartet up and down the east side of the USA premiering his new record "A Series or Circumstances".

Ryan Devlin is a 25 year old saxophonist and private woodwind instructor living in Boston, MA, currently attending the New England Conservatory for his Master's Degree. Devlin started his musical journey with his father Scott Devlin who was the leader of the Walt Disney World Sax Quartet. Music was always in the house when Ryan was a child. Scott was always teaching lessons or practicing for his next gig. Ryan was immediately interested and asked his Dad to teach him saxophone around age 9, after playing piano for 3 years. Since then Ryan has been practicing, gigging and teaching everyday!

Ryan has been a member and featured soloist in ensembles such as The Florida All State Jazz band, The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra, The Orlando Jazz Orchestra, The Seaworld Saxophone Quartet and the UCF Flying Horse Big Band just to name a few. Ryan is also the 2017 winner of the Central Florida Jazz Society and was runner up in 2017 Bob Washington Jazz scholarship competition.

Ryan also has also taken lessons with world class musicians Jerry Bergonzi, Chad Lefkowitz Brown, Alain Bradette, Lucas Pino and Airmen of Note saxophonist Tedd Baker. Ryan has also performed with world class musicians like trumpeter Terell Stafford. Noted saxophonists Dick Oatts, Jerry Bergonzi, Chad Lefkowitz Brown, Jerry Weldon, bassist Gene Perla and drummer Adam Nussbaum just to name a few!
