I am based in Manchester but travel all over the country so if you would like to discuss your requirements, I would love to hear from you.
In my work as a wedding and event saxophonist I have performed at The Dorchester, Claridges , The Hotel de Paris in Monte Carlo, Suvretta House in St. Moritz and Henley Regatta, appearing in front of celebrities and members of the Royal family.
If you are having a wedding, anniversary, dinner party or entertaining corporate clients, the warm sound of the tenor sax is perfectly suited to create a relaxed atmosphere while your guests enjoy the evening. I play many styles of music from Jazz standards to current hits and am always happy to learn a favourite song for a special day or to accompany the walk down the aisle.
Here are a selection of songs I’ve had recorded. Use the player opposite to choose a track to listen to. If you like the songs you can download them for free. If you would like to purchase a copy of my solo album Head Puzzle Parts featuring original compositions, please email me at [email protected] or visit my Bandcamp page for digital downloads.
Here is a sample of numbers that have proved popular when playing wedding saxophone. I can cater for many tastes and am always happy to listen to client’s preferences, so whether you are looking for some laid-back Jazz or Uptown Funk there should be something for you. I can also provide Klezmer music for Jewish functions and Bollywood songs for Asian parties.
