Mixology is the perfect accompaniment to weddings, charity events, private parties and corporate events. The act is particularly popular with clients recreating memories of Ibiza summers or Folie Douce, apres-ski winters.

Mixology is often booked as a solo DJ (rather than a sax & DJ duo) so please be sure to request whether you want to hire DJ only or DJ with other instruments.

The group has recently been featured on the prestigious Festival Brides blog after performing for Lucy & Harry's wedding at La Léotardie in the Dordogne, south west France.

What our couples say...

"We booked Mixology Sax and DJ for our wedding at Manoir Beaulieu and they were absolutely amazing from start to finish. We loved the idea of having something special for the entertainment at our wedding and the addition of a saxophone was exactly that. We are super grateful to the guys for playing both a cocktail hour set by the pool before transitioning into the main dance area for a night of partying. Music was really important to us for the evening. We wanted something to remember and the music selection was excellent and succeeded in getting everyone on the dance floor, even the most reluctant dancers! All our guests were raving about how good it was and how different to the usual wedding DJ style. Thank you so much for performing and we hope to see you again!"
