About Dave

Dave is a very experienced saxophonist. He's a one man show using backing tracks or a duo, a quartet or quintet depending on your needs.

I'm a very experienced saxophonist who has amassed over 30 years of professional working life. I have a history that includes 24 years service as an army musician. I'm currently spending my days and some evenings teaching and gigging wherever I am needed. I play to backing tracks for dinners, parties or conference receptions.

Dear Dave, Just a small thank you for the wonderful music you played at our wedding last Saturday afternoon. It was exactly what we thought we were going to get and set the tone of the afternoon very nicely.

Hi Dave, My wife and I would like to thank you for the performance you gave at our father's birthday party yesterday. He's loved the surprise., particularly the rendition of "summertime" you played. He will remember it for a long time to come.
