Thanks Paul for playing at my 40th. I had a great night. Paul was very communicative. Gave me a call to discuss the range of songs i was looking for and arrived early to set up so that the other performer before him was not disturbed during their set. Thank you

Paul is the ultimate sax genius. We run a boutique PR agency based in central London. I’ve also booked Paul for private/family events. He’s super adaptable and dynamic in terms of reading the mood of an event. I would highly recommend booking for your next event.

You were amazing! The feedback from everyone from 14 to 76 was the same. Our daughter loves the sax, and I think that showed especially during your rendition of Jubel - goosebumps! We really appreciate all your efforts in making her 18th birthday a night to remember.
