5 stars - Viva La Sax are Highly Recommended booked Viva La Sax for their event in Cheshire

“Hi Becky After a completely manic weekend at our house, I just wanted to say thank you so very much for all your help at short notice last week in securing Viva la Sax for Mike’s 50th Party. She was fabulous and just ‘mucked in’ to a rather mad house party which was almost thwarted by torrential rain! Everyone said how great Viva La Sax was and it really helped to relax the mood and get the party going with a swing. The whole experience of Alive Network has been superb from beginning to end and I just wanted to say thank you. ”

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.
