Saxophonists are becoming one of the most popular entertainers for weddings. With this huge rise in popularity, I have provided the top five reasons why brides and grooms are choosing to book a wedding saxophonist for their entertainment…
The Saxophone is a Unique Form of Wedding Entertainment
One of the biggest search terms for wedding entertainment is ‘unique’. Brides and grooms want their big day to stand out from the crowd and provide their guests with an experience to remember. The saxophone is a beautiful instrument which sounds and looks amazing. Also, many people may not have seen it played live before, so it will be a treat for their senses.
A Wedding Saxophonist Can Perform Nearly Anywhere
Because the sax is an instrument that can be carried and played acoustically it gives lots of flexibility with regards to where and when it can be performed.
You can literally have it for any part of your wedding day. From serenading you down the aisle, to mingling with your guests during the drinks reception, played to backing tracks throughout the wedding breakfast, then freestyle on the dance floor playing along to your DJ at the evening reception.
Wedding Saxophonists Are an Affordable Entertainment Option
As a saxophone can create such a big sound on its own you can book it as a solo instrument. With prices starting from around £220 it’s a fantastic way to provide wow factor wedding entertainment without blowing your budget.
With the Saxophone There’s Something for Everyone
A wedding saxophonist will often have a huge repertoire, so there will be something to suit all music tastes. You and your husband/bride-to-be may want to bring the sounds of your summer holidays back with some relaxed Café Del Mar sounds during the start of the evening reception, whereas your folks may be into more traditional jazz during the drinks reception. They can also play along to pop/rock and soul backing tracks, so there really is something for everyone.
Saxophonists Can Perform in Larger Line-Ups
If you have a bigger space to fill or some extra budget available (nice work) then it is easy to augment your saxophone player with additional musicians to make a duo, trio, quartet – or as large as you want. You can add keyboard, guitars, percussion or even more sax players, and again, they can play a huge repertoire from jazz and swing to rock and pop.
