5 stars - Classic Sax are Highly Recommended
booked Classic Sax for their event November 2022

“Classic Sax played for my 30th birthday and was fantastic. He made the whole process easy from start to finish, I asked if it was possible to learn a few extra songs to an already wide collection he had passed over and he did them with no problem. Highlight of the evening!”

The Way He Conveyed Emotion Was Incredible

5 stars - Classic Sax are Highly Recommended
booked Classic Sax for their event November 2022

“I am so honoured that Classic Sax played at my late husband's funeral..he did Richard proud.. The way Michael conveyed emotion through playing the pieces was incredible the words of Charlie 'Bird' Parker "If you don't live it , it won't come out of your horn", meaning that music is your own experience, your thoughts , your wisdom..... Thank you so much Michael!”

Full Biography

Classic Sax is a hugely experienced and talented alto/tenor saxophonist. Performing popular hits (old and new!) plus jazz standards, his varied repertoire offers something for every occasion.

Classic Sax has performed as a soloist and with bands of various genres around Britain and Europe for over 20 years. He also has studied hard and gained a Master's degree in musical performance demonstrating his commitment to his art form and complimenting his already impressive skills.

Even though he is just one man and a saxophone, Classic Sax can create an energetic party atmosphere or alternatively, a relaxed feel to your day. Performing alongside high quality professionally-recorded backing tracks as standard, Classic Sax will always read the room and cater for a range of atmospheres. Additionally, Classic Sax’s years of professional experience means he can even impressively freestyle alongside your DJ to bring those Ibiza vibes!

Whether your event requires a dynamic party vibe or a softer ambience, Classic Sax has got you covered! Performing live is, quite simply, what Classic Sax does best and he loves doing it!

Please note: For outdoor events Classic Sax will need shelter from the weather due to musical instruments and electrical equipment not faring well in direct sunlight or rain.
