Based in Northampton, I play tenor, alto and soprano saxophones, over high quality backing tracks. I provide live Saxophone background music for Wedding Drinks Receptions in Northamptonshire and surrounding Counties. I have been playing professionally for 9 years and my varied sets include jazz, smooth jazz, pop, swing and even a pinch of classical music (played on flute), and can tailor my sets according to your preferences.

How much space do you require?
As a solo performer playing over backing tracks I need very little space.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Yes, if your favourite tune is not already in my repertoire I am happy to learn it, subject to the availability of a suitable backing track and having enough time before the event. This will be confirmed and quoted for on a case by case basis.
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
Where I am playing 2 x 45 or 3 x 40 minute sets I will take a short break of approximately 10 to 15 minutes between sets. I am happy to play for up to 60 minutes without a break.
What instruments do you play?
I play Tenor, Alto and Soprano saxophones and will play one, two or all three of these depending on the duration of the event and any customer preference expressed. I can also play flute where appropriate.
Having a very broad repertoire of popular Jazz and Swing favourites, through to Show Tunes and Classic Pop hits means that I am able to cater to audiences with a wide range of ages and am able to tailor the perfect sets for your special day.
