More information about hiring a sax player for your wedding or party...

The saxophone is a highly versatile instrument that adds an uplifting and often sensuous tone to jazz music, pop covers and modern house tunes alike.

Saxophonists can be amplified wirelessly and perform with a backing track or a live DJ. Amplification is sometimes not required for smaller venues, or if there are fewer guests.

They are able to roam amongst your guests to really provide an interactive spectacle. This is perfect for evening entertainment and wedding receptions.

Another popular genre is live lounge style chillout sets, often for afternoon events and cocktail receptions. The saxophonist will usually perform with backing tracks (pop, easy-listening, jazz...) for this type of event.

Some of our saxophonists are also highly accomplished DJs and combine the two skills by pre-mixing songs and improvising on sax.

Wedding saxophonists can perform outdoors but cover from the elements is required...sunlight can damage the instrument, as well as any type of precipitation.

Saxophonists on FixTheMusic have PAT-certified equipment, meaning that their equipment, such as a PA system, is safe to be used at public venues.
