Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Where to even start with this review?! Me and my partner booked MJDJSAX to DJ and play saxophone at our wedding on 22nd June. Michael is INCREDIBLE as a person, saxophonist and DJ! If you’re thinking about booking him - STOP THINKING and DO IT!!! Michael was super friendly and accommodating and listened to all of our requests. So many guests approached me to tell me how incredible he was and he was a massive hit with everyone! Michael ensured that everyone was having the best time throughout the night and when playing saxophone he was dancing with us all on the dance floor. Thank you so so much for being so ace! Honestly, so amazing and couldn’t recommend him enough."

FAQs about hiring Saxophonists in Merseyside

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?

Often featured in classical and jazz music settings, some classic songs that feature a soprano saxophone include, “Careless Whisper” by George Michael and “Baker Street” by Gerry Rafferty. 

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




What does an alto saxophonist mean? 

Alto saxophones are the most common type of saxophone. Known for their warm, lyrical tone, alto saxophones are popular in jazz and pop. Some popular songs that include an alto saxophone include “Stand By Me” by Ben E King and “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. 

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




What does a tenor saxophonist mean? 

Larger and bolder than the alto, with a rich, expressive sound, the tenor saxophone is most commonly used in jazz, blues, and rock. Popular songs with a tenor saxophone include "Smooth Operator" by Sade and "The Girl from Ipanema" by Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto. 

To get an idea of the sound of our tenor saxophonists for hire, check out their profiles where you'll find videos of them performing live.




What does baritone saxophonist mean? 

Deepest and lowest-pitched saxophone, the baritone saxophone adds a warm and full bottom end to the sound. Baritone saxophonists usually play in jazz, classical music, and even some contemporary music.


Respect by Aretha Franklin and “Pick Up the Pieces" by Average White Band are two popular songs that include a baritone saxophone.


To hear what our baritone sax players sound like, check out their profiles.




What does bass saxophonist mean? 

Rarest and largest saxophone, with a booming and tuba-like sound, bass saxophonists are mostly found in classical and experimental music.
