Background Music

We have a range of soothing jazz, swing and classical music in a variety of line-ups providing the perfect accompaniment to your wedding day or corporate event.

Solo Saxophone

Add a touch of class to your event with the ever popular sound of the solo saxophone.

The mood of your event can be as formal or informal as you require, whether you are hosting a black tie dinner or a picnic. Our professional musicians can play subtle background music for a drinks reception as well as more lively numbers to create a party atmosphere.

Our sax players perform unaccompanied and are also available to book with live accompaniment, such as a pianist, or tastefully recorded backing tracks. Being fully self-contained they are able to perform either indoors or outdoors, weather permitting, and with, or without amplification, as required.

Thanks to their vast experience of playing at numerous corporate events they are able to judge the mood and adjust their choice of music accordingly.
