We hired Ben for our wedding to play a saxophone set during our evening reception. Ben was fantastic, the music was great and got everyone up to the dancefloor. We loved the music from start to finish. Would highly recommend for all events.

Ben played the sax at our wedding and it was absolutely amazing. The communication before hand was super easy and it’s clear that he’s very talented and he seemed to know every single song to play along with the DJ! We knew it would be a great night but Ben on the sax really elevated the vibe and got everyone up and dancing. We kept the sax a secret from our guests and they loved it! Could not recommend him enough!
