Curtis Stigers

Readers' Picks

In his hometown of Boise, you're more likely to see Curtis Stigers thumbing through albums at the Record Exchange than on stage. It's not because he doesn't want to perform in Boise, it's because he can't--he's too busy playing stages all over the world. Stigers is well-known as both a saxophonist and a singer and is popular in both jazz and pop circles. He released his 10th studio album this year, Let's Go Out Tonight, and will spend much of October and November touring Switzerland, France, Denmark, Germany and the West Coast. When he does get the chance to perform at home, the Emmy winner has no problem selling out the Egyptian Theatre. Maybe the fact that it's Stigers' low, sultry voice we hear singing the theme song to the acclaimed TV show Sons of Anarchy has a little something to do with it.
