Andrew really made our day and we couldn’t have asked for a better musical contribution to this special occasion. Our guests were blown away by Andrew’s fantastic saxophone playing and he just radiated such positive and energetic vibes throughout the entire reception. We can’t express our gratitude enough!!"

"Oh my goodness, where to begin. Andrew is such a delightful person, and his music is by far the best I have heard. I listened to many artists online before I chose Andrew, and the reason I did choose him was that he stood out over and above the competition. I had so many comments from my guests who thought he was fantastic. He plays such rich and soulful music with a passion, and I so wish I could have my party again and just watch and listen all over again. You should have no hesitation in booking Andrew - he gets 10 stars from me." Gaynor (My 60th birthday party)
"Wow! What a great day everyone had with Andrew playing the saxophone at Arley Hall. People dancing while having reception drinks. Andrew just made the event so exclusive and even now people are asking where did I find such a fab musician. He added soul to our event and we would definetly want him at any future events we have. Just amazing TALENT! Thank you again Andrew. XXX" Charlotte Winney
"Andrew was absolutely amazing! A lovely, polite and professional man who played extremely well. The room Andrew was playing in was quite small and so I asked for him to play 'background' music rather as the guest were relatively close - he listened and amended his set based on the room change. Many people complimented Andrew after the event and we would happily invite him to play again!" Emily Landless (Conference)
