Thank you so much for playing saxophone at our wedding.  You were professional throughout with an extensive choice of appropriate songs and great communication beforehand.  The music was spot on and guests were thoroughly entertained.  We would not hesitate to recommend you 100%.

Thanks for the lovely performance you gave at my party on Saturday evening.  It really made the evening go with a swing.  You really are totally self contained (with all your equipment etc ) and put on a most professional performance which was enjoyed greatly by all.

Naz and I loved the music and you were completely professional and helpful right from the initial planning through to the final performance. A nice contrast for the wedding ceremony and reception afterwards.  Many people commented on how lovely the music was - some at first thought you were piped music as you were so discreet!  Many thanks for helping make it such a lovely day.

Joe’s solo sax evening at my jazz event in the garden was a great success.  He provided excellent entertainment which was much enjoyed.  He  also played for the reception before our charity black-tie dinner and created an excellent relaxed mood for our event.
