EVENTS & GIGS

If you're looking for an affordable entertainment option for your next event, you're in the right place. This is my "solo" offering. I perform a wide variety of music from chilled background music to uptempo party music. Once the dance-floor is pumping I also offer a  'DJ' service as well. Below is a selection of the kinds of music I perform. My repertoire is extensive but I don't really cover 'Rock' or harder styles of music. They can however be played in my breaks or for dancing if needed.

ReCordings

If you're looking for any kind of saxophone work on your next project, let me put something down for you. I am 'ready to go'  with Logic Pro X.  I play Alto, Tenor and Soprano saxes. Solo parts, textures, growling tenor or sweet soprano, I've got you covered.

I can also arrange and record a kick-ass horn section with trumpet and trombone added.
