Solo Saxophone

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.

Solo saxophone music is ideal for your wedding ceremony or as light entertainment for your drinks reception or wedding breakfast.  Weddings make up most of my bookings but I perform regularly at all kinds of events, including birthdays, anniversaries, garden and pool parties, corporate functions and promotions, dinners, black-tie evenings and anything else that you can think of!  Every event wants a unique approach and you can rest assured that I can play as loudly or as quietly as needed!

I have a large repertoire of pop and jazz classics as well as Christmas songs, Disney themes (perfect for kids and bridesmaids alike!) and Ibiza-style dance, house and chillout tracks.  I can tailor my performance to your personal tastes, allowing you to highlight (or "veto"!) any songs or styles from my repertoire in advance, and I can also offer you the opportunity to request a few songs for me to learn specially (additional costs may apply).

I have a wireless microphone which clips neatly on to my sax whenever needed, and I use a remotely-controlled sound system which enables me to adjust my backing music and volume levels from anywhere in the room.  This specialist setup lets me move around the venue and interact with my audience instead of staying in one place ... I have fun and your guests will too!  I even have a high quality, battery powered speaker which is perfect for wedding ceremonies in remote locations, and I have been known to use it in a power cut as well!

Please take a few moments to view my repertoire (below) and check out some short audio and video clips by clicking or tapping on the blue links.  The links will take you to a variety of social media platforms and each link will open in a new tab/window or app.  You can return to this screen by closing the new tab/window or switching back to this app.  You don't need to have your own social media accounts to enjoy these samples, but please give them a "like" if you do!

The fees quoted below will apply to the vast majority of events in Kent (UK) but please get in touch for confirmation.  I am also able to perform elsewhere in the country and even worldwide but additional costs will apply.  I don't have different fees for weddings compared to other types of events - I value every client the same and so I charge every client the same.
