They can play a classical or traditional wedding song or something romantic with a modern twist at that all important moment when the bride walks down the aisle. Maybe you can arrange for them to play something like the classic Percy Sledge hit ‘When a Man Loves a woman’. Or, how about ‘A Million Love Songs’ by Take That? Your Sax Player can also play a celebratory song as family and friends leave the ceremony.
Wedding Drinks Reception Entertainment:
A wedding saxophonist can be a really good otion for drinks reception entertainment - when the bride and groom are busy posing in the wedding photos etc, and the guests socialise and drink that first glass of champagne, a professional Sax Player can be moving around from guest to guest, playing tunes that span the decades.

How much do Saxophonists cost to hire?
Our easy-to-use entertainment directory allows you to search for the best Saxophonists in your area (or who are able to travel to your event) and then use the contact form to message them requesting a quote for your event. Some acts will also add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
What are the usual set formats and performance lengths for Sax Players?
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 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!
