Andy was a fantastic addition to our virtual party :) He arrived well prepared in plenty of time although we weren't concerned as we had plenty of communication in the leadup. He was professional, talented, confident on the mic to create a joyful atmosphere and played with great spirit. Everyone loved Andy and the performance so would highly recommend, cannot fault anything! Also great adaptability and enthusiasm in taking on a virtual concert in the back garden :)

I met Andy by complete chance while he was playing for a 40th birthday party in a pub in Kingston. After listening to how good he was we decided to book him to play as a surprise for our daughters wedding. We couldn't recommend him highly enough; with all the guests mentioning how great he was. I'm so glad Andy was part of our day. Thanks very much Andy!

I was looking for some live music for my wife's surprise 40th birthday party. Andy was simply brilliant from start to finish. He provided just the right ambience I was after, playing a variety of jazz, pop and soul classics. My wife and our friends had a wonderful evening and we would both definitely recommend Andy to anyone after a saxophone player. Thanks! All of our guests commented how much they loved the saxophone and specially our entrance song Jubel Save me. We couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thanks very much
