Most musicians play a single instrument and hone their craft to master it. John Heinrich, on the other hand, has mastered multiple instruments over the course of his entire music career, and he’s looking to do more. Heinrich is a professional musician that plays the Saxophone, Pedal Steel Guitar, Dobro, Flute, Lap Steel, Clarinet, Oboe, and English Horn, to name a few. Currently, he enjoys playing Steel & Sax with Ronnie Milsap.

He was the Horn section Leader and Tenor Sax for Percy Sledge back in 2009. He also played Soprano Sax on Nokie Edwards’ CD project, ‘ The Golden Fingers of Nokie Edwards.’ Heinrich has also played the Saxophone on a project that featured multiple solos by Steve Lukather, who is the guitarist of the rock band Toto. As Heinrich looks back at his amazing career, he reminisces about the session he played for Jack Clement featuring Louis Armstrong as the singer. He looks back on this day as the best session he ever played in his entire career. This was during the time when he was working with Wayne Jackson in the ‘Memphis Horns.’
He also played Steel on projects in Nashville that featured revered artists such as Glen Campbell, Merle Haggard, and Crystal Gayle. In 1991, Heinrich played for Hank Williams Jr. on his ‘Lone Wolf Tour.’ He also played a live gig with Peter Noonan of Herman’s Hermits.
