If you have ever heard him play it is an experience you will not soon forget. Influenced by musicians that range from David Sanborn and Gerald Albright to Maynard Ferguson and Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jermaine exudes passion with every note and phrase. There is an unmistakable anointing on his life and his musical gift. The Muskogee Oklahoma native has over 27 years of playing experience. His musical journey started at age 11 while listening to a local Jr. high school jazz band perform during a recruiting concert at his elementary school. The band gave out a form that simply stated "Circle the instrument you are interested in." Jermaine circled the saxophone and gave it to his father who within days walked him downtown to the local music store and bought his first saxophone. The rest is history!
Jermaine was relentless in his pursuit to learn the saxophone and gain the respect of his music loving father. Within his second of year playing he was improvising and playing along with his father's David Sandborn albums. It was also during his second year he began playing in church with his mother. The combination of these two seemingly opposite worlds of Jazz and Gospel began to develop his unique style of playing.
Jermaine established Jermaine Mondaine Music Ministries in 2003 with the mission of providing quality, life changing ministry and entertainment through music, public speaking, and inspirational literature. That same year he was honored by Muskogee Mayor, Hershel McBride with "Jermaine Mondaine Day" on November 22nd to recognize his accomplishments in the music field. He has performed and recorded with such established musicians and ministries as: Phil Driscoll, Sharon Daugherty, Bishop Noel Jones, Wayman Tisdale, Dennis Jernigan, Jonathan Dubose Jr. and Marcus Miller. He has four recordings of his own and can be heard on countless others. There is one word that describes this young man and his ministry:
