Description

Price from: £150

I'm an Award-winning Wedding Saxophonist (2019, 2017) but also a Saxophone Player for Events whether formal or informal: a Birthday, Wedding Anniversary or Retirement Party; a Christening; a Funeral; a Dinner or Function etc. I was awarded the Certificate of Excellence by top UK wedding site Bridebook. I've also performed at 3 garden parties for a top national figure and received a fantastic review: he asked me at the time not to reveal his identity - although I may reveal his name to you if you ask me - I never lie!
If you're looking specifically for a wedding sax player, live music on sax during any stage of the day - the Wedding Service/Ceremony, the Drinks Reception, the Photography, the Wedding Breakfast, the Evening Interlude and/or even during the Evening Reception (I've played during every stage) creates an amazing ambience - unlike any other option. See my extensive repertoire here on Poptop - full of favourite wedding songs, which is continually up-dated. What's more I can play freestyle alongside your DJ for added variety.
You can rely on me not just for an assured performance but I'll always go the extra mile to create the wedding of your dreams. My approachability and professionalism has been noted many times.
I even managed to perform at my own wedding, which together with many years of performing at others' weddings, proves you really are working with a professional wedding saxophonist and not a musician who just goes through the motions.
I've 40+ years experience performing, composing and arranging as solo musician and with numerous bands on sax & clarinet and as Music Director of an instrumental music group in Ilkley. Wide-ranging practical experience is the only qualification which matters when it comes to choosing a musician.

Tim was great, blended in and entered into the spirit. Did what was asked, what was expected, couldn't ask for more. He did exceed expectation with his preparation and willingness to take on such a small role.

Tim was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. He played at our wedding reception for 3 hours, he knew exactly how to work the room and everyone enjoyed listening to him play.

"We booked Tim as a last minute act for our NYE Hollywood party. He was wonderful considering how last minute we contacted him. He managed to prepare music which was great for the theme and atmosphere. Great choices for the time of evening. Our only thing was that he did not introduce himself befpre starting. This, however was our fault as we didnt ask him to introduce himself.
All in all i would highly recommend Tim, he was perfect for what we needed and the quality of his playing was top notch. He arrived early to set up and left swiftly to allow the next act to prepare.
Thankyou Tim for saving us and being an outstanding last minute booking :)"

We booked Tim for a Charity event and it proved to be a great decision. Great repertoire of tunes which were played beautifully and really enjoyed by the guests. Very flexible in his approach and will definitely use Tim again for our events.

Set List/Services

I play the tenor, alto and soprano saxes, each with its unique sound-quality, as well as the clarinet (which enhances a Vintage or Gatsby-themed Wedding or event). My vast and ever-developing repertoire includes a wealth of material including favourite chart and other pop/rock songs, movie hits including lots of Disney, soul/motown, jazz & Rat Pack etc., wedding classics, rock&roll etc. etc. through to favourite party and dance tunes, which I'll then craft into the perfect mix just for you. Please see the repertoire pdf.

Once couples see the benefits of a sax player who can offer an up-to-date and ever-developing repertoire and lots of great reviews but is keenly priced to keep their budget to a minimum, they appreciate the unlimited value of top-class wedding entertainment: after all, there are some corners you shouldn't cut if you want a truly memorable wedding day!
