Formed in 2012, the Forza Saxophone Quartet brings style and passion to your event, a professional saxophone quartet suitable for many occasions. We play all genres but specialise in 1920s Jazz - Perfect for that themed event. Based in Bournemouth, the Forza Saxophone Quartet is available for hire in Dorset, Hampshire and further afield in the South of England. Available for formal and informal occasions, we ensure the music fits perfectly for your occasion. Whether it’s for corporate events, weddings, or anything in between we’re sure you’ll enjoy the vibrant and beautiful music from one of the South coast’s premier sax quartets. A big focus for the quartet has been image and authenticity as well as a high standard of music. We can play in various authentic 1920s wardrobes which we think adds another level of interest engagement for the audience. We believe that a saxophone quartet adds a modern twist on the traditional string quartet and our primary aim is always the satisfaction of the client. Although we specialise in jazz, we also have a very large and varied repertoire spanning from classical through to popular hits from the Beatles and Weather Report. We understand that a big demand for quartets is for weddings, so we have a specially selected repertoire for your special day!
