Public liability insurance of £1 million

From a young age I’ve had a deep-rooted love for music; over the years I’ve dedicated countless hours honing my skills to become a very in demand Saxophonist and performer. This commitment to excellence led me to pursue a formal Music education, where I obtained a degree in Jazz from Middlesex Uni. Through rigorous training, countless performances, and collaborations with renowned musicians, I have developed a skill set that allows me to deliver exceptional performances across various genres and styles; from Jazz to Big Band Swing and Ibiza Sax. Music has the remarkable ability to touch souls, transcend language barriers, and evoke emotions like no other art form. It is a universal language that connects people from all walks of life, and I feel privileged to be able to communicate my thoughts, feelings, and experiences through the power of sound. The sheer joy and satisfaction I derive from captivating an audience, taking them on a journey, and leaving them with a sense of wonder is immeasurable. Music is not just a profession for me; it is my calling, my purpose, and the driving force behind my life's work. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of participating in numerous performing highlights that have shaped me into the musician I am today. From intimate acoustic sessions in cozy coffee shops to headlining at laughter and Jazz festival in Barbados. I have experienced the full spectrum of performance settings. Each opportunity has provided me with invaluable experiences, enabling me to adapt to diverse audiences and showcase my versatility as an artist. Beyond my qualifications and performance highlights, it is my personality and professionalism that truly set me apart. I approach each performance with attention to detail, ensuring that every note resonates with authenticity and passion. I strive for perfection while embracing the spontaneity and magic that live music brings. Whether it's an intimate gathering or a grand stage, I create an atmosphere that captivates and engages the audience, inviting them into a world of musical enchantment.

I cant Thank Simon Lee enough for the saxophone entertainment he provided for my 40th Birthday party. Simon was a very last minute booking due to my booked entertainment cancelling and he was a true star!! Simon listened and reassured me and understood what feel i wanted for my party and delivered exactly what was asked, he had everyone up on the dance floor and added such a vibe to the party alongside the DJ. Simon obviously left a huge impact on my guest as they couldn't stop talking about the amazing saxophonist and many asked for Simon details for future event. Thank you Simon Lee for making my 40th birthday a memorable one and for your fabulous entertainment. We will be sure to use Simon in the future and would 10000% recommend Simon for anyone looking for a saxophonist! X
