Made our day that bit more special

5 stars - Anna (Saxophonist) are Highly Recommended booked Anna (Saxophonist) for their Wedding in Leicestershire August 2019

“Anna was exceptional, our guests thought she was amazing and we had so many compliments regarding her performance. Our day started off running rather late resulting in a rather mixed up running schedule, but Anna was extremely professional and without prompting or discussion altered set times to accommodate the situation. She was absolutely fabulous from start to finish and I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Anna xx”


A surprise wedding gift to my new wife and a complete success!

5 stars - Anna (Saxophonist) are Highly Recommended booked Anna (Saxophonist) for their Wedding in Hertfordshire August 2019

“Anna is an amazing lady and performer. I booked Anna at really short notice as a surprise for my new wife. We planned to have our reception drinks out on the Polo pitch in the beautiful August summer sun, instead it was raining, nevertheless Anna set up next to the stage under the Silver birch trees, in the marquee and created one of the most wonderful and intermit atmospheres and performances during our reception drinks and afternoon tea. I was worried that the sax would be too loud, being inside and when I approached Anna about this she was more than happy to assess the room whilst performing and change the volume if necessary, nothing was too much trouble. The setup was so streamlined and quick my wife hadn’t even noticed until one of her favourites songs started playing in the sax! She was thrilled with her gift and was sad she didn’t get to speak to Anna to thank her in person on the day. A wonderful repertoire of music of all eras which our guests absolutely loved! ...”


Anna was absolutely fantastic

5 stars - Anna (Saxophonist) are Highly Recommended booked Anna (Saxophonist) for their Wedding in Shropshire July 2019

“Anna was absolutely fantastic. My review cannot praise her enough she knew exactly where to play and kept all the guests entertained. As the guests moved around the hall she was very discreet at moving her equipment to wherever they were. My daughter arrived at the venue a little late so all our timings were out. I asked Anna if it would be possible for her to stay a little longer. No problem was her reply so put my mind at ease. I highly recommend her.”
