100% would recommend Sam to play at anyones wedding!! To seeing him playing on Market Street in Manchester to him playing at our wedding on the 02/11/19. He was just amazing, he was on time and never stopped playing. All the guests loved him and could not believe where I had found him! He is very talented! You are amazing Sam! Thank you so much for being apart of our big day 😊

Sam played at our wedding at the weekend. He was absolutely fantastic and we received so many lovely compliments about him and his music. I have never heard a saxophone played so perfectly. We can’t recommend him enough!
