We hired Ben to play sax for our wedding reception drinks. He was absolutely fantastic, everything from booking, checking playlists, and performing went perfectly smooth. On the day he came played chilled Ibiza style music with his own DJ backing. Absolutely nothing negative to say. Would book again in a heartbeat. Totally elevated the drinks. Thanks Ben

Ben is a fantastic Saxophonist and was perfect for our networking event. The genre of music was just as we requested and he wasn't too loud which enabled attendees to network.

Ben was absolutely amazing, he was the highlight of everyone’s night. He was happy to talk through requests and the set list and was super helpful. He had amazing energy at the party and everyone loved his playing. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience- highly recommend. Thank you Ben!!

Ben was extremely professional from our very first conversation. The whole process was very straight forwards and he was great to work with. Unsurprisingly, his performance was excellent. He played for a few hours during our wedding reception and he really helped to make a classy, intimate atmosphere. I would definitely book Ben again!

Ben is an extremely talented musician and he suited our wedding day perfectly. We wanted some DJ sax as an afterparty for our wedding and it went down a storm. Thank you Ben.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I will do my best to be flexible to suit you. Just let me know if your timings change and I'll see what I can do.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes of course, and this can be tailored to your choice.

How much time do you need to set up?

For just myself, I'll be all setup within 30 minutes.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

You can have as much customisability as you like. I'm happy to adapt my usual set lists to suit you best.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

I will bring everything I need. Somewhere to plug in to electricity is ideal but not essential for certain services.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

I'll be able to learn whichever song requests you have if I have time to get at them!
