Frequently asked questions

What are the most popular styles for a saxophonist to play?

Saxophonists are very versatile, and they can play across a dizzyingly diverse array of genres. These genres includes: jazz, funk, pop, R&B, blues, reggae, ska, and soul/Motown.

Will I need to provide the saxophonist with any equipment?

In most cases, saxophonists will come fully equipped with a PA system and microphone; they're able to set up just about anywhere (so long as it's close to a power socket!). The only things you'll need to provide is a seat for breaks, and enough light for them to manoeuvre.

I already have a DJ, but I want a live element too. Will a saxophonist play alongside my DJ?

Many of our saxophonists are experienced with this kind of performance, and will slot in very comfortably alongside a DJ. Whether the DJ is playing soul/Motown hits, or a selection of house/Ibiza classics, our professional saxophonists should find this to be a piece-of-cake. They'll add their own particular flair and style to the performance, giving the dance floor a live feel, while keeping the seemless flow of a DJ set.
