    I’m a singer and collabing with Babis was such a pleasure. He is very professional and talented. His behaviour is excellent and he is an amazing performer. I had the chance to work with him multiple times, including live performances & studio recordings and his musical skills are impeccable. I would recommend him with no second thought!!!

    Words cannot express the talent and efficiency of this musician .Babis integrity as a human and musician is out of this world .since 2006 he is the main saxophone player in the Tubescreamers band and has contributed in both the bands LP’s driving our blues rock rock n roll albums to another level.Ofcourse the same applies to every one of the hundreds of live gigs he has played as a member of the band.He’s approach and feel of every tune of ours is without exaggeration,out of this world!
    Thus the title “maestro “is indisputable when it comes to Mr.Babis Prodromidis.
