About Saxy Maids

Cornwall's premier all female saxophone quartet. We can play indoors, outdoors and parade through the streets if requested!!
Saxophone ensemble
Public liability insurance of £10 million

The saxy maids, Cornwall’s all female saxophone quartet, were established in 2000 and have enjoyed playing across many venues for many occasions over the years. We have been performing with our current line up for the past six years, although we have played together for many years in various other bands and ensembles. We absolutely love playing together as a quartet and enjoy rehearsing and arranging new material often so we can cover all genres and are up to date for current requests. We can cater for most occasions and have played wedding, concerts, festivals, functions and many more. We are acoustic and flexible in numbers so can fit any setting. Our repertoire consists of a wide range of genres from jazz to classical and pop to funk. The quartet have performed at the St Ives September festival, Roselidden, the Jubilee Pool and have guested for various choirs across the county. One of our more interesting performances was parading through the streets of St Ives for a local wedding.
