Solo Sax (Info. & Pricing)
A solo saxophone performance is the perfect way to add that extra sparkle to your wedding or event. It's unique, classy and fun, and goes a long way towards creating that 'no-expenses-spared' feel without overloading the budget. I can provide music for beautiful wedding ceremonies, full on dance parties and everything in between!
Weddings make up most of my bookings but I perform regularly at all kinds of events, including birthdays, anniversaries, garden, house and pool parties, corporate functions and promotions, dinners, black-tie evenings and anything else! Every event wants a unique approach and you can rest assured that I can play as loudly or as quietly as needed!
The performances I offer fall into three main categories (described below) and each has its own webpage (also linked below), so please have a browse. You can even mix and match if the package you book includes more than one set! Please get in touch with any questions.
A 'Sax Covers' session is perfect as light entertainment for ceremonies, drinks, dining and relaxed parties. I play a huge range of pop and jazz classics and give everything a cool, saxy style! I perform my 'Sax Covers' sessions using professional backing tracks (which are like the original tracks except without the singing) so the sax can take the lead!
In a 'Smooth Sax' session, I perform a mix of tropical house and Cafe Del Mar style tracks, as well as laid back songs and chill out remixes of some well-known pop tunes, creating that holiday beach bar vibe! A 'Smooth Sax' session is ideal for pool parties, garden parties, outdoor drinks receptions and any other event that needs a modern, chilled vibe.
Looking for an Ibiza style Sax-DJ party? A 'Party Sax' session is ideal for evening wedding receptions, birthdays, hen parties, baby showers and more! I can play along with a DJ (or I can provide my own tracks and equipment for smaller events), hitting a range of Ibiza, club, dance, kisstory, garage, club classics, R'n'B and more-or-less any other style!
Packages & Discounts
Standard Event Prices:
One set of up to an hour = £195
2 x 45 minute sets (across 2 hours) = £255
2 x 60 minute sets (across 3 hours) = £315
3 x 40 minute sets (across 3 hours) = £315
Evening Wedding Options:
An evening wedding performance is priced exactly the same as any other event (see "Standard Event Prices" above).
A one-set performance is an amazing party starter, to really get things going! Most couples ask me to join in halfway through their first dance, and then lead straight into the party!
My two-set option is the most popular choice and I normally play my second set after the evening food is all done ... it's perfect for kicking things back off again!
Most couples who book three sets ask me to start with a 'Chill Out Sax' set (see above) while the evening guests are arriving, and this creates a really cool vibe at the start of the night. Alternatively, the third set can be an extra party set later in the evening.
Daytime Wedding Options:
These options have been adapted from my Standard Event Prices to fit the flow of a wedding day. They offer plenty of flexibility and discounts, so you can plan your day your way! I don't charge more for weddings compared to other events.
|Arrival Drinks (up to one hour)||£165|
|Wedding Ceremony (described below)||£195|
|Drinks Reception (one hour)||£195|
|Drinks Reception (2 x 45 minute sets)||£255|
|Wedding Breakfast (one hour)||£195|
|Wedding Breakfast (2 x 45 minute sets)||£255|
A wedding ceremony performance includes a few songs whilst the guests are being seated, as well as music for the entrance(s), the signing of the register and the couple's exit at the end.
Discounted Wedding Packages:
All my couples pay full price for their first option (details and fees listed above) and then receive a £75 discount on each additional option they choose! This offer applies to both daytime and evening options (mix and match!), which means you could book all five (arrival drinks, ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and a performance in the evening with the DJ) and receive a massive £300 discount!
The Small Print:
Discounts only apply to bookings which are for the same day and venue. The options don't need to be booked at the same time, and you can always add or extend options nearer the day (subject to availability). I don't discount packages which contain just the arrival drinks and wedding breakfast, or just the arrival drinks and evening reception, or just the ceremony and evening reception, as I would find myself sitting around all day in between! The fees quoted above would apply to the vast majority of bookings in Kent, UK but please get in touch to confirm. Otherwise, I can travel anywhere but additional fees may apply. Bookings on or around bank holidays (e.g. New Year's Eve) may also include additional fees. Every package is subject to a £45 non-refundable booking fee which is included in the total cost of the package (it's not extra!), and you would pay this by bank transfer when you sign the contract. The remaining balance would be payable by bank transfer at least a week before the event.
