Wow what can I say, Juan was absolutely amazing from start to finish! I was a little stressed trying to organise an event & he kept me calm & came with his own playlist just in case I didn’t have time to create one! I sent him mine last minute & he was able to improvise & play the sax to perfection! He arrived an hr early & really added that magic touch to the whole evening, everyone loved him!! I would 100% recommended him & would definitely hire him in the future! A massive thank you Juan!!!!

Juan played for us during our corporate christmas party at the royal society of Arts in London. Throughout the process, Juan was very helpful and professional. He even arrived 1 hour early from the start time which was super helpful as we needed to figure out the sound system. Juan also brought the background music and saved us from the hassle of figuring that out. In addition, he was great at communicating and kept us in the loop between the time we booked him through encore and the show night. Overall, very satisfied with Juan and cannot recommend him enough.

I had the pleasure of hosting a couple of performances from XAS within Rolling Stock. Communication was clear and concise from the beginning, having received all the necessary documentation from him (tech rider, specs, layout, fees etc.). On the night, load in and soundcheck were done ahead of schedule by him, requiring minimal assistance from staff. Interaction with the crowd and the music were both on-point. I would highly recommend XAS to any music venue looking to collaborate with him.
