FAQs about hiring Saxophonists in Carlisle

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What kind of music can a saxophonist play?

The most popular genres that saxophonists play are jazz music, funk, pop, R&B, blues, reggae, ska, and soul/Motown. However, saxophonists can play practically anything, from modern pop to classical music to soulful jazz, making them a popular choice for everything from birthday parties to corporate events.

How long will a saxophonist play for?

A saxophonist will typically perform two to three 45-minute performances. Of course, depending on the scheduling of your event, they can be flexible, but bear in mind that they will need short 10-15 minute rests after their sets to collect their breath! Make sure to ask one of our fantastic saxophonists how they set up their set times; they may be able to personalise it specifically for your needs.

Can a saxophonist take requests?

Yes but check their song list first, as your request might already be on there. Otherwise, notify your saxophonist in advance; if they are unfamiliar with your music, they will need time to prepare. While most saxophonists would learn an additional song for free, keep in mind that some may charge for this additional service (especially if you want them to learn numerous more songs).

How far in advance should I book a saxophonist?

We recommend booking as soon as possible, especially if you have specific songs in mind, but at Encore, we manage last-minute reservations all the time and can easily find a saxophone on short notice.

What does a soprano saxophonist mean?

Take a look at the videos of our soprano sax players for hire to get a feel for their sound.

Check our collection of alto sax players for hire, to watch their videos and get a sense of their sound.
