I hired the wonderful Sophie on Sunday for my husbands birthday. We had afternoon tea for friends and family and Sophie was wonderful. Just what we wanted, she played a fabulous selection, what ever we suggested and more. Very relaxing and very pleasurable. Sophie had driven 2 hours to be with us and hadn’t batted an eye lid. Her warm, friendly manor and the beautiful Saxophone she plays made my husbands birthday a huge success!!

Hello we are so lucky to be able to give this review about Sophie. Last night Sophie played for our daughters birthday party and she was fantastic. Sophie played everything we wanted and Sophie was so accommodating and knowing about paying special attention to the crowd. It was a very exciting night thanks to Sophie Sax. We have re-booked her too.

Sophie was a delight - not just for the lovely set which she delivered at my wife's 60th birthday party (which was very well received), but also for the manner in which she dealt with us, both before the party and during it. Strongly recommended!

A great addition to my 50th Birthday party that I held at home. They arrived promptly and nothing was to much trouble. There was a good mix of genre , all thoroughly enjoyed by my guests.

Sophie Sax - Female Saxophonist 2 X 30 Mins Set or 1 Hour

Hi, I'm Sophie Sax and would love to help make your event special. I play a wide variety of music from contemporary pop to jazz, all to high quality backing tracks with a fantastic PA. I am able to wander amongst the guests, playing solo's. I have even been know to get a Tequila Conga going! Generally I perform 2 sets or 1 hour but this can always be adapted to suit your specific event requirements. I just require a plug socket in the place where you want me to perform - if outside - some sort of covering please too(My Bose PA is 6ft tall so just need to check height can be accommodated) I can learn specific song requests but please note there may be an extra charge as I will need to buy the backing track and spend time learning the music too. Any questions at all, I will try and answer as soon as possible. Please note that I do not perform alongside DJ's
