A great addition to our wedding

5 stars - Classic Sax are Highly Recommended
booked Classic Sax for their Wedding August 2022

“Michael was a great addition to our wedding! He played one of my favourite tracks, Everlong by the Foo Fighters, on the saxophone while I walked down the aisle. It was such a great moment and made even more special by having live music at the ceremony. Everyone loved it and even the registrars commented how unusual it is. It was a fantastic start into the ceremony and got the energy up. Would be great as leaving the ceremony music too! I can't recommend enough hiring Michael for your wedding!”
