Only the best saxophonists in the UK are listed on FixTheMusic.
Our sax players have performed at popular UK wedding venues, including Bovey Castle, Padstow Townhouse, The Pig at Combe, Hell Bay, Cider House, The Goring and Weeke Barton. Many of our UK saxophonists frequently perform at local luxury clubs and bars as well.
Each local saxophonist who we work with has vast experience performing at weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, charity events, and other more unusual events, such as baby showers and hen and stag dos.
An Ibiza-style sax player is especially popular at the moment, inspired by the club and dance scene on The White Island. Our British saxophone players include both male and female saxophonists who perform throughout the UK, as well as across Europe and the Middle East.
If you're looking to hire your UK saxophone player to perform at a bar or club (e.g. for your 30th birthday party), you should probably check with the venue manager first, as sometimes they need to approve of your hire of a saxophonist for your event. In our experience, it's usually always possible, but best to check first!
Saxophonist hire is especially popular for wedding receptions, where the UK sax player will perform on the dancefloor alongside your guests.
How much does it cost to hire a UK sax player?
This is one of the most frequently asked questions we receive. The average cost to hire a saxophonist in the UK in 2020 is £549. The exact price will depend on many factors, such as travel expenses, the length of the sax player's performance, whether they also DJ or if they are just a solo sax player etc. The easiest way to find the best price for your sax player is to hire a local sax player near you, as then the travel costs will be reduced.
The following videos show some of the world's best sax players and DJ sax groups, available for weddings and parties across the globe.
Our sax players have studied at the best conservatoires in the UK.
Many have, for example, studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, The Royal College of Music, Trinity Laban, Guildhall School of Music and The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
The saxophonists on FixTheMusic perform jazz favourites, Rat Pack tunes, classic and current soul, pop music, as well as Café del Mar style and funky house club sets.
An increasingly popular choice is to hire a DJ-saxophonist (when the sax player DJs simultaneously) or a separate DJ to work alongside the saxophonist. Other combinations include DJ, sax, bongos, percussion, electric violin and even singers.
Saxophonists often perform Ibiza-style club sets consisting of current and classic house music at weddings and parties.

The saxophone is a highly versatile instrument that adds an uplifting and often sensuous tone to jazz music, pop covers and modern house tunes alike.
Saxophonists can be amplified wirelessly and perform with a backing track or a live DJ. Amplification is sometimes not required for smaller venues, or if there are fewer guests.
They are able to roam amongst your guests to really provide an interactive spectacle. This is perfect for evening entertainment and wedding receptions.
Another popular genre is live lounge style chillout sets, often for afternoon events and cocktail receptions. The saxophonist will usually perform with backing tracks (pop, easy-listening, jazz...) for this type of event.
Some of our saxophonists are also highly accomplished DJs and combine the two skills by pre-mixing songs and improvising on sax.
Wedding saxophonists can perform outdoors but cover from the elements is required...sunlight can damage the instrument, as well as any type of precipitation.
Saxophonists on FixTheMusic have PAT-certified equipment, meaning that their equipment, such as a PA system, is safe to be used at public venues.
