I couldn't be happier with Kelvin. He went above and beyond my expectation. The songs I requested him to play, he played flawlessly. It was a wonderful tribute to my Father and would certainly hire his services again. It was a blessing to find him on this website. Really pleased.

Kelvin was fantastic. He arrived in great time, played longer than scheduled, captivated our guests and created a perfect atmosphere. Kelvin was also creative, helpfully suggesting ideas to help the party go with a swing! I would highly recommend him.

'I first heard Kelvin & Egon performing in Sloane Square, London and was blown away by the ambiance they were delivering. They kindly came to play at my event in Norfolk in front of 500 people and produced an epic 2 hour performance. They have a subtle knack of getting people moving and lifting the atmosphere of an event through both amazing musical talent and a physical presence. I could not recommend these cool dudes more and will 100% be having them at my next event!'.

We chose Kelvin for my daughter's 17th birthday. An intimate celebration where Kelvin was super discreet and professional throughout. He was attentive and creative when planning the set list. A smooth and thoroughly enjoyable evening and I have no qualms recommending him and his saxophone!
