Ian Thompson - Saxophonist - South East, South East Event Location: Ilford Town hall, Ilford 28th May 2017
We organised an Indian music show and Ian played the sax for us. He was the star of the show and no one would ever say he was playing those songs for the first time. He is very dedicated, talented and an amazing person to work with. And when he is on stage it's like magic..!!

I just wanted to let you know how delighted I was that we chose you to play at our wedding. You are such amenable chap and your music is fabulous but I'm biased as I love saxophone music! For a totally unbiased recommendation I pass on the comment from Dean who was not really bothered either way about having any additional music and if I'm honest saw it as an extra cost, but he actually told me that having you there was the icing on the cake. You really did help to make a beautiful day even more so with the added bonus of making the atmosphere so relaxed. He was absolutely chuffed that you played for us. (We women know what's right lol).
