Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Archie "XN TricK" started flute at the tender age of 11. Forward 15+ years later he has played in the UK and internationally including bookings in Belgium France, and India for private parties, weddings, and corporate events including the Essex Jamboree festival, and the Hilton. Guest performances on flute, sax in nightclubs, bars, or often booked for start-ups, parties and corporate events, a bespoke entertainment can be sorted for your event. He has his own twist on vintage and modern popular covers and creates an interesting soundscape, so audiences can appreciate the live aspect and creativity as well as nod along to well-known familiar songs. Formal settings and weddings often appreciate stripped-back flute/sax sets as it creates a relaxed atmosphere, then later more upbeat. Archie XN Trick can be booked as a live sax DJ, solo flute/sax, or with a guitarist/plus percussion as a duo or trio. Additionally, can be hired with a pianist for more laid-back drinks receptions/ jazz bar scenes. The band also loves to make a difference and has a reduced charity event rate. They are also available for seasonal bookings at Christmas and have very competitive rates.

Fantastic set. The flute beat boxing pulled me in from way over the other side of the camp site. Couldn't quite believe it was live until close up. Greg Pattilo eat your heart out! Made my day, thanks for coming!
