About SAX

A sexy sax playing man called Dan!
Public liability insurance of £1 million

I've been playing saxophone for most of my life and professionally for the past 5 years. I've played across the world on cruise ships, done summer seasons in Europe's top party destinations and played at weddings all over the world so have a lot of experience at a whole range of different events. I can provide totally bespoke background music for functions, birthdays, weddings and corporate events or improvise melodies along with a DJ, adding that special sax sound to any performance! I use industry standard SHURE radio mic system, so can perform from anywhere in the venue and have a range of effects to give a real quality club sound! I also own a portable PA system that can be used outside or where there isn't a sound system available. I'm based in Leeds but am more than willing to travel so send me an enquiry and let's make your event that little bit more special!

Customer questions

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

I always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know.

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

Absolutely! This is a really popular request so if you'd like me to DJ and provide a PA sound system and lighting just ask me and I'll put a quote together for you!

How much time do you need to set up?

If its just live sax I require a minimum of 15 mins to set up.

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

Of course! You can choose as may unique songs as you like.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

All I require is an XLR or Jack mic input in the DJ mixer/controller, the rest I will provide.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there is a chance I already know it. Essentially I can improvise along to any song (within reason) but if there is a particular song that you require, let me know at least a week before the event and I will learn it for you FREE of charge!

Dan was absolutely fantastic at our wedding! He listened to what we wanted and was happy to oblige. He really got the party started and everyone really enjoyed his performances! When it rained later on, he also rescued the party by getting started quickly and keeping everyone in a party mood. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to have him at our next party!

I've seen Sax-a-Dan play many times and performed with him also, he can freestyle to just about anything! He can cater for all types of events, play with DJ's or other instruments and definitely can get the party started, as well as play some very cool laid back tunes! Would definitely recommend!!
