As an accomplished saxophonist and pianist, I've been fortunate to play all over the world for artists including the Supremes, the Temptations, Nick Heyward from Haircut 100, Curiosity Killed the Cat, and the Drifters. As well as being an instrumentalist I also sing in a relaxed and swinging style. I perform regularly at the Celtic Manor Resort and my experience as a musical director includes several years with Carnival Cruises and as bandleader at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
Born in London, I'm a graduate of Leeds College of Music and have an MA from the University of Westminster. In recent years I've often played as an orchestral and jazz musician for BBC TV Wales and S4C and I'm a published songwriter and composer.
Performing solo or with a duo or small band I have an extensive repertoire of modern pop songs, swinging jazz and soulful easy listening and whether playing beautiful saxophone melodies for a champagne reception, classic piano favourites for a wedding ceremony or DJ...

He was fantastic, playing all the music we liked and even letting us use his microphone for the speeches. It was a perfect afternoon and I highly recommend him!

Julian was great. He was very organised and worked with our DJ to coordinate our entrance. I received lots of positive comments from guests that he played some good songs, both Bollywood and western during the Champagne reception. He also played our entrance music which went down really well.

"Julian arrived in plenty of time to set up for my husbands 70th birthday party, he was very accommodating to all our needs, ""special requests"" no problem. everybody at the party had a really great time, they really enjoyed themselves.
Julian is a very talented entertainer with his extensive repertoire of classical, romantic pop, and jazz and we would have no hesitation in recommending him.
We would like to say thank you for all your help.
