Me and my wife just wanted to thank you so much for your performance. Everybody loved your performance with the string quartet and then with the Zaffa drummers. My dad was particularly impressed with your playing style and because his sister is a concert pianist and he also knows a bit about jazz and he's a tough man to impress. Nazish is planning on doing an instagram thank you to everyone involved in the wedding once she gets some of the professional imagery. Please let me know if you have an Instagram handle I can pass onto her. Thanks again Cameran and Nazish

Mason is a real profession talented saxophonist ,I hired him for my partners 60th Birthday Party 30/06/2019 Just a word of advice if this is a private party within your home first check that you have your own sound system appropriate for the event as Mason usually uses clients sound systems connected vie Blue tooth. However If you do not have one Mason is able to make alternative arrangements so check this out with him before hiring. There were just a few miner hitches with intermittent loss of connection whilst playing first few backing tracks I guess this was due to using blue tooth which was a little disappointing / frustrating. A direct link would have been my preferred method if this had been possible which may have prevented this. I can say it was Masons talent that made this party a wonderful event , I would definitely hire him again and would recommend him !
