Paris 2, 6 years ago

We recently asked Ian to perform at an awards evening for us. He did a wonderful job and his music really gave the event a great atmosphere. The variety of songs played were fantastic and were well received by our guests. A hugely talented saxophone player that we will be asking back to our future events.

Becky U, 6 years ago

Ian came along to our office Christmas party to provide the background music during our sit-down meal. Throughout his performance, Ian created the perfect ambience with his wide ranging repertoire and had diners singing along, enjoying the vibe. We would thoroughly recommend using Ian to provide the entertainment at any party. He is fantastic!'
