Anne-Marie was a great performer and entertainer. All my guests were mesmerised by her performance. I asked her to do a few songs and I was blown away by her renditions. She was excellent definitely recommend her for any type of occasion.

Anne-Marie was extremely professional, played on her sax whilst cocktail hour was happening. Me and my husband could hear her playing from outside which was amazing. She set the ambiance and tone of the environment, very chill and warm vibe. 10/10 guests honestly complimented me on her which I’m really greatful about.

Ann-Marie was amazing! Our guests loved her, as did we, Not only her brilliant performance but her general presence. Ann-Marie was also very accommodating and flexible especially considering we only booked her a few days before our event. Dawn & Phil Tufnell
How long do you play for?
I play for a maximum of 2 hours but this can be split over a longer period of time (eg: 3x40minute sets).
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
At present I have my own pa equipment- 2x800w speakers, mixer and microphones.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
As a member of the Musicians’ Union, I have Public Liability insurance and all of my electrical equipment is PAT tested.
How much space do you require?
Enough for myself, saxophone stand, microphone stand, mixer (if using, fir which I would require a small table) and speakers. 1.5 x 1.5m is usually sufficient.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
If sufficient notice is given, I will learn it and play it for you.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Usually a 10 minute break in between sets, depending on the length of the event. I would then play recorded music from my iPad when not playing myself.
Songs performed upon request.
Songs from the 60s -90s soul era (eg: James Brown, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, The Whispers, Kool and The Gang, Michael Jackson, etc).
Classic reggae and afrobeat.
Modern pop (eg: Ed Sheeran, Adele, Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, etc)
Plus all the American songbook jazz classics.
