About Liz

A vibrant show with an eclectic mix of vocals and saxophone, suitable for all venues.
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I first picked up the sax at the age of 22 and within six months turned professional and was performing with the legendary John Williams! My wonderful saxophones have taken me on a kaleidoscopic tour of the world to India, Japan, USA, the Caribbean and now to beautiful Cambridge. I have had the privilege of performing with musical legends such as Bill Wyman, Kenny Ball and the Drifters and have had the equal privilege of helping many people suffering from dementia improve their lives through the wonderful medium of music.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

My timings are flexible. Timings can be changed unto 48 hours before performance.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

No problem at all. I offer this for free before and in between sets. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

For a solo show I normally set up 1 hour before performance. For a band show it would be 1.5 hours. For weddings I prefer to set up before the ceremony or when guests arrive. This can be discussed before booking.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Yes you can. If you would like a song not on the set list I can arrange 2 songs for you free of charge in advance. From there I charge £30 per song.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I do. I can perform both outdoors and indoors. For large gatherings I would need an electricity point. For small gatherings I can perform without an electricity point.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.
