Elma Sax - Saxophonist - Bristol, South West Event Location: Weddings In the Woods, England Event Type: Wedding 29th September 2018
Elma sax played at our wedding on Saturday 29th September. She was very organised in the run up to the wedding and was quick to communicate with us about song requests, speakers, and anything else we discussed. On the day Elma was professional and friendly to the guests. She played an amazing set of jazz and pop covers with her own backing music. It was an excellent feature to our wedding and we had compliments from many guests! Thank you Elma- we would highly recommend Elma Sax for weddings, parties or any other events !

Elma Sax - Saxophonist - Bristol, South West Event Location: birmingham o2 academy Event Type: Professional performances 7th March 2018
Elma has been a fantastic professional to work with. She has been all over the UK with us, playing with us when we went on tour supporting the Wailers and in massive venues including O2 Academy Birmingham. She showed commitment and flexibility coming to all the rehearsals at short notice and became fluent with her parts very quickly. Elma is a very positive and optimistic individual who is adaptable and a joy to work with.
