Getting married is such a life-changing decision and it's important that the day runs as smoothly as possible.

Choosing the right kind of music is essential as a buzzing atmosphere can really make your day! Each event is different and requires a music set tailored to your needs and wishes. That I why I can offer music that is specific to your day.

I will set up on location and can provide all my own equipment. It is essential that I have access to a power supply and I do provide my own PA system. If I am to play outside I'll need adequate cover from potential 'un-wanted' weather.

Music Set

I can offer a one hour set, or 2 x 40 minutes sets as saxophone with backing track, played through my PA system. I can of course offer a more specific programme, play for longer or can learn any special songs you want - just ask! I also work with a cellist as a duo and can offer a more classical approach if wanted.

My Audio Tracks

I use a variety of backing tracks with real musicians which add a more realistic vibe to my performance. I can offer blues, funk, jazz standards, pop and ballads.


Prices can vary, depending on the location, length of playing time and date. Please always give as much information as you can, as this will help me tailor my service to your occasion. Please note, weekends can get busy, especially during the summer months.

So if you're looking for a wedding saxophonist and drums duo in Manchester, get in touch with Sax & Bongos.

"Thank you so much. We loved your set, it was incredible and just what we wanted!"

"We wanted a saxophonist to play at our wedding from the outset. Neither I nor my husband is musically trained and so we searched to find someone. As soon as I came across Sax & Bongos, I knew that we had to have them play at our wedding. She was so friendly, warm and approachable even over text. We met with her before the wedding and any wedding nerves that I may have had evaporated. She kept in touch with us coming up to the wedding. It made me feel that I could leave her side of things to her and gave me one less thing to worry about. She played beautifully during our drinks reception."

"We got married in a country house and I felt the music suited the surroundings so much. Sax & Bongos played a complete mix of songs from love songs to quick, upbeat music which helped create a buzzing atmosphere when our guests were mingling. Our service ran over and during the actual service I worried about the length of time that we would have the duo left to play. I needn't have worried as she simply played on which was wonderful. We got so many compliments from our wedding party about the music and how great it was to sip on champagne whilst listening to their beautiful music. I cannot recommend Sax & Bongos enough and having them play at our wedding was one of the best decisions we made."

"Sax & Bongos were great, she was flexible with the timings of her set and was a great crowd pleaser when it came to her choice of set list. We loved having Sax & Bongos at our event and would book her again in the future. Thanks."
