Description

Price from: £100.00

I play tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, using high quality backing tracks and provide background music for Wedding & Corporate Drinks Receptions in and around Northamptonshire. I also play saxophones in a Duo with Coventry based Guitar/Vocalist Dave Nicholls. We play classic Pop/Soul/R&B covers and are available to book here on Poptop under the name of "Nicholls & Simes".
