Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Judging from the amazing feedback I get I think it's that I raise the vibe at all my events, leaving guests impressed and surprised. I absolutely love playing the sax and adding something special to a track that doesn't yet exist and I think it shows. Clients also comment on how confident they are when booking me - I communicate very well which relaxes them.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Cafe Mambo The Royal Albert Hall Buckingham Palace Windsor Castle United Nations (NYC) The Jazz Cafe Ronnie Scott's Montreux Jazz Festival Previous clients: Porsche Yorkshire Air Ambulance Leicester City FC GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) Judge Jules

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Jamiroquai Groove Armada Faithless Simply Red

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

It's either performing alongside Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) or for the Queen on 2 occasions. I have also performed for Groove Armada, Shed 7, Judge Jules, Alex P, Brandon Block, The Temptations, Candi Staton, The Stylistics, Percy Sledge, Ben E King, Smokey Robinson, Peabo Bryson and Freda Payne. There's more than that but I have the memory of a goldfish....

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

NOT A PROBLEM! Just let me know asap and I will always be as flexible as I can. Most events rarely run perfectly on time in my experience so this is all just part of the job.

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

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and I actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via my PA after the final set, then I can also provide this. Please ask for a quote as the additional costs depend on the finish time.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually only 15 minutes is adequate but please allow for up to 45 minutes in some cases.

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

Yes of course but if there's anything not on there that you would like I will let you know if it's possible. Some styles/songs are not suitable to have additional saxophone over the top but I'll always try my best.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, absolutely! I bring my own instrument and a radio mic to all bookings. If you don't have a DJ then I can also provide my own BOSE L1 Pro8 Line Array system which sounds (and looks) mint!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes but some styles/songs are not suitable to have additional saxophone over the top. If you let me know what it is I will let you know either was asap.

Mark was brilliant! His performances at my daughter's 21st gave the party that something extra and definitely made the night. All of the guests commented on how fantastic he was! Communication was excellent and he worked with us on the song choices ensuring the night was extra special. I'd book Mark again in a heartbeat. Mark, I can't thank you enough for being not just a part, but one of the best parts of the night! Jo x

Mark was punctual, smartly presented, courteous and an amazing addition to our party. He went out of his way to make things work and even learnt Radioactive in a week to give our birthday girl the best treat ever. Thank you Mark!

Mark played for a couple of hour at my sons 21st alongside the DJ. Definitely took the night up a couple of notches and our guests loved it - everyone had a great night & we would highly recommend. 10/10
