From customers:

Pocklington P, 4 years ago

The four-piece saxophone ensemble, Sax Forte, performed excellent background music

Aughton C, 2 years ago

My husband and I were at Aughton on Friday night for your Saxforte concert. My word....what a treat. Such a talented group. We had a wonderful evening, and each piece you played became a new favourite. I particularly was caught up in the atmosphere and mood of Northern lights, and El Capeo. Thank you for sharing your love of the sax and your gifts with us. We shall be on the lookout for your future concerts
