Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

As a DJ/Sax duo we love nothing more than getting the dancefloor moving! Clients credit us for playing "all the bangers" and frequently mention how we take pride in our professionalism; arriving well in time, all the time.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Although newly formed, venues played as individuals have ranged from Park Chinois, Mayfair to The Barbican Music Hall.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Everything from Stevie Wonder to Daft Punk

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

Hard to say, but probably the Etihad Stadium, Manchester!

Do you have different line-up options?

Of course! We're also available as two separate acts: solo sax with backing tracks or solo DJ.

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

If timings change slightly in the run up to the event, just send an email to [email protected] (ideally a week beforehand) and we will be happy to accommodate any adjustments that are possible.

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

Music is none stop once we get setup, keeping the dancefloor moving the whole time!

How much time do you need to set up?

Set up time depends on parking and access to power supplies. The usual set up time is between 25 to 45 minutes and will be completed with plenty of time before the set.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes we can! Alex's wireless microphone allows him to roam around any venue up to 20 metres away from his receiver.

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

Requests are very much welcome, and our set-lists are tailored to each individual client's preferences (unlike other acts that may use generic playlists). We do this to make sure the music is perfect for every event we play!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

All equipment needed is included in our quote, from our top quality Bose PA system to public liability insurance.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Song requests are always welcome, however, tracks may need to be sourced/created in advance so plenty of notice is needed!

From confirming the booking to making our wedding day an amazing party Sax and The City were fantastic. Professional and easy to communicate with they took all our wants and song list and made the day and night for us and our guests. They blended seamlessly into the venue, looking great and working with the venue staff to make our special day. The venue manager also telling us how great they were. The first dance was made extra special with Alex on the Sax and we couldn't be more happy. Would reccomend to anyone planning their special day.
