The Viva La Sax Duo (see booking options)
The Viva La Sax Duo features Viva La Sax (saxophone and flute) and Orli Nyles (vocals and piano). The duo first met in 2008 when Viva La Sax booked Orli to be a special guest with her house band at the renowned Parrjazz night in Liverpool. An immediate bond both on and off stage was formed and it was refreshing for both to play high quality music with another female musician!
As Orli and Viva La Sax are both well-established musicians in their own rights together they form a female tour de force to be reckoned with.
Covering repertoire from jazz to latin and blues to pop The Viva La Sax Duo have proved to be very popular for both corporate occasions and private parties. They were also invited to play together at The Congleton Jazz and Blues festival and Liverpool’s Mathew Street festival.
To maintain the smooth running of your event Viva La Sax can provide jazz and latin music between sets for no extra charge and can learn requests for a small fee. Please ask your agent for more details.
