About Paul

Verified profile

I am a graduate of the prestigious BA Jazz performance course at Middlesex University. A pianist since the age of 6, I went on to study alto saxophone from the age of 12. I am superbly experienced and confident in DJ/Sax sets & Jazz/Lounge reception & evening parties. I can play alongside backing tracks as a solo performer, or I can bring a DJ or any number of additional musicians as per your requirements. I manage and perform with event band Vivid Band. We offer a variety of line ups : acoustic jazz duos / trios, 4-13 piece party bands. I can dress in either a dazzling show suit, a striking all-white casual suit, a formal black suit (with or without bow tie) or more casual funky disco pop summer wear.

Hi Vivid Just wanted to say a massive thank you for last night- you guys were absolutely amazing! You got everyone dancing constantly, everyone loved it. The whole experience has been fantastic from the moment of booking to the performance. You were super accommodating when we were running behind schedule, took it all in your stride.
