Andrew Bruell, retired Purchase Manager, and now enjoying a second life as a keen self-taught saxophonist, playing a wide range of music (1300+ tunes from Pop, Soul, Dance/disco, Jazz, rock, old time, sweet, church, classical and Christmas) with an amplified backing track in and outdoors on Alto, Bari and Tenor Sax. I started busking to raise money for charities and as passers-by regularly asked me for bookings, I make myself available for other gigs at reasonable rates, and have played many parties, surprise gigs, proposals, weddings and funerals, from 2-300 guests.
I play pleasantly, enthusiastically and sweetly, especially suitable to create an atmosphere with backing music, and as I also play upbeat dance/disco music I get booked for parties too. I'm proud of the sound I make- don't just take my word for it, check-out my reviews from past clients, a number of whom have asked me back as they are impressed with my sound, amazing pricing, and wide range of available music and genres. Customers are consistently impressed with my attention to detail during the booking process and events - I take time to understand their needs and do my best to deliver them in a professional way.
If you like the sound you hear from my past event recordings and demos, and you can see songs you'd like to hear on my playlist*, I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
*Only a small fraction of my playlist shown. Contact me for a complete selection. I can learn your favourite on request, see extras
My membership of this service does not permit me to talk to you until a booking is confirmed. If you shortlist me, happy to answer questions and send you a detailed, no-obligation explanation of the ins and outs and options of booking my services, to help you decide if my services will work for you.
After booking, I will call you to ensure I fully understand your requirements and can help make your day memorable for all the right reasons.

Thanks for reading to the bottom line :-)

Andrew was absolutely brilliant and I cannot recommend him enough to anyone who wants to make their event special. Excellent communication from the start. I have had so many comments on how amazing he was. He had such an extensive song list that caters for all ages and genres.
Thankyou Andrew for making our party a night to remember.

I booked Andrew to perform at my 40th birthday party, from start to finish he was so professional and friendly, and incredibly talented! My guests were so impressed with him, he really managed to create a fantastic party atmosphere. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone and will definitely use him again in future.

Highly recommended.
Andrew was friendly and his communication was great.
He was easy to talk to and took great pride in delivering exactly what we had discussed.
Once he arrived was very professional and easy to talk too.
Andrew played non stop at our gig beautifully providing a great evening of fun filled music.
What a fantastic player.
I have no doubt that no one will be disappointed.
