About
As Manager and Sole Member of UKnighted Expressions Inc, Chris Knight considers himself a well gifted Saxophonist, accompanied by background music to fit any occasion. Along with his "Sax Appeal," Chris has been very blessed to have the gift of learning and playing music by ear. As a devoted student at A2G Music Inc. located in Woodbridge VA, Chris has taken saxophone lessons to further develop his skills of reading music, as well as the fundamentals of Improvisation. As a member of Alfred Street Baptist Church in Alexandria Va, Chris was heavily involved in The Jackie Henry Green Orchestra. With this experience, he became one of the Charter Members for both The Sanctified Symphony Orchestra and more recently, The 1803 Horns.

What Chris enjoys the most about his passion for being a Saxophonist is the fact that it's a never ending learning experience. There are so many techniques, so many exercises and learning experiences that have further enhanced Chris' gift of expressing himself as a Saxophonist. This is the reason why Chris started his own company, UKnighted Expressions Inc.

Additional Specialisms: Orchestral Playing, Solo Performance, Contemporary Music, Jazz

We hired K. Chris Knight for live music during our wedding cocktail hour and he was awesome! All of our guests raved about him, and said that the music was great and he did a fantastic job. Knight was also a pleasure to work with from beginning to end— super understanding and professional. Our hotel venue required specific documentation, and the hotel coordinator even said that Knight had been one of the most prompt and detailed wedding vendors that she’d worked with. Great hire and super talented. Thank you for being a part of our special day!

K. Chris Knight played at my wife's retirement party and was simply amazing. Very professional, affordable and punctual. He was very engaging for 2 hours at the event. He captivated the crowd with his rendition of Total Praise right before dinner. His array of horns and mastery of each piece was simply perfect for the affair. I bring high recommendations, that he is the one to make your next event very memorable.
