I booked Emma for evening entertainment at our Daughters wedding. Emna was happy to liaise with her & the Dj regarding music choices & then worked alongside him on the night to produce some quality sound. She is a fantastic player for someone so young & is capable of playing the saxophone along to anything. Our guests commented on how great she was & said they could have listened to her all evening. My Son-In-Law's 99 year old Grandmother even asked to be pushed into the room in her wheelchair as she was enjoying the sounds so much. Thank you for some great entertainment Emma & we wouldn't hesitate to book you again :)

Just wanted to say a huge thank you. The saxophonist for our wedding was INCREDIBLE. I had the best time dancing with her music. I know my DJ found her amazing too. Everyone loved it and everyone danced all night. Thank you very much

Everyone really enjoyed the music and danced the whole night! I would highly recommend Emma to anyone who wants to add that special touch to their celebrations -Thank you again
