Book a Saxophone Player for Wedding Entertainment:
Wedding Ceremony Entertainment:
Are you looking to hire a solo Sax Player as entertainment at your wedding ceremony? This is one of the most sensual and romantic instruments on the planet so we highly recommended booking. Imagine the horns being blowed just before the big moment, as your wedding guests are walking into the registry office/church! Because of the slender ease at which a saxophone can be moved around, your hired Sax Player can be situated anywhere you choose. They can be playing at that all important moment when the bride walks down the aisle. They could play a traditional wedding song on sax or a maybe put a modern era twist on proceedings. Maybe you can arrange for them to play something like Percy Sledge’s classic hit ‘When a Man Loves a woman’. How about ‘A Million Love Songs’ by Take That?! Nobody can deny the sawing sax in that early hit for the boyband! The Sax Player can then play a celebratory song as family and friends leave the ceremony!
Wedding Drinks Reception Entertainment:
Wouldn’t it be great to hire a Sax Player for when the wedding drinks recption is taking place?! When the bride and groom are busy posing in the wedding photos etc, and the guests socialise and drink that all important first glass of champagne, a professional Sax Player can be moving around from guest to guest, playing sax hits that span the decades. What a great conversation point!

A Sax Player can totally transform the gaps between these points at a wedding. The Saxophonist can be the one relaxing people and getting all of your family and friends in the right, soulful mood!
Wedding Evening Reception Entertainment:
The amount of Pop songs where the sax and horns are key is extraordinary! Take the wedding evening reception drinks for example: The professional Sax Player can blow his or her way through passionate renditions of ‘Baker Street’ by Gerry Rafferty, ‘Edge of Glory’ by Lady Gaga, ‘Careless Whisper’ by George Michael, and ‘Smooth Operator’ by Sade! There’s so many more classic saxophone songs to be covered as well! It’s important to know that a Saxophonist can really get the party funky by playing over a backing track or alternatively, they can calm and soothe the night by simply playing solo. How about a beautiful rendition of the 1960’s classic ’Stand by Me’? Or maybe some Jazzy Frank Sinatra with a cover of ‘Fly Me to the Moon’?

A Saxophone Player can tailor their performance to times that will suit you and your event, however, on average a professional Saxophone Player will perform for two 45 minutes sets.
How much space will a Saxophonist need at your event?
A Saxophonist is very compact musician who will not need that much space for performing. As the instrument is carried, all the Sax Player will require is the space around him or her to play their instrument comfortablly. We advise a staage area that is no smaller than 3x3 metres.
What equipment and set up requirements do Saxophonists need?
As with most artists signs up on Entertainersworldwide.com, a Saxophone Player will provide most of their own equipment. This may include: a music stand, sheet music and the saxophone itself we hope!
