Public liability insurance of £10 million

Elijah is also a passionate solo performer and this comes across in his lively and energetic performances. With an ever growing repertoire of over 175+ songs, covering many genres from Pop and Motown classics to jazz and Ibiza House styles, Elijah prides himself on his ability to handpick the ultimate setlist for every event. Elijah plays with professionally recorded and arranged backing tracks through state-of-the-art sound equipment as well as alongside esteemed DJs. As a soloist, he can easily tailor his performance to his client's specific tastes and requirements, allowing them to highlight or deselect any tracks from his repertoire. He can also offer the opportunity to request a few songs for him to learn specially in advance. Elijah performs everything from memory and uses a wireless, radio microphone where needed. This enables him to move around the venue as he wishes, creating the perfect atmosphere everywhere he goes. A solo saxophone performance is a terrific way to add that extra sparkle to your wedding day, party or any other event. It's unique, classy and fun, and goes a long way towards creating that 'no-expenses-spared' feel without overloading the budget. Solo saxophone music is ideal for wedding ceremonies as well as light entertainment for drinks and dining, and is certain to be a real highlight of the day. Elijah is constantly seeking opportunities to bring his charismatic sound and solo brand of entertainment to a wider audience, striving to leave his audience on an unforgettable high. He is able to be booked for Weddings, Private Parties and Corporate Events, as well as Studio and Session work.

Thanks so much for 2 fantastic sets at the BBQ on Sunday. We had so many compliments afterwards about the music as it really made the event super special! I shall definitely recommend you!

Amanda P, 3 years ago

We loved having ambient music for our community to enjoy at the village bbq. Elijah was very professional to deal with and many complimentary thoughts were shared about his performance. Really added something special to the day! Recommended!
