Biography - About us

Hiring an Ibiza club style saxophonist alongside your DJ is a great way to really kickstart your party and get the dancefloor packed. 

Maddy is so versatile that she has a number of different playing options making her an ideal saxophonist for ANY occasion. For 'background' music such as drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts and garden parties, Maddy can perform along to backing tracks. She has hundreds of songs in her repertoire and always happy to learn specific requests. Maddy can also be joined by a pianist or a guitarist to form a duo or trio. Where Maddy really shines is performing 'freestyle' where she improvises and 'riffs' along with the DJ while dancing amongst your guests on the dancefloor. 

From experience, when performing with a DJ, we suggest the BEST time for a saxophonist to start would be once everyone has had something to eat from the evening buffet (after guests have already been warmed up by the DJ). The suprise addition of a saxophonist at this point really injects another sense of WOW factor - then it's REALLY time to party!   

NOTE - We can offer you special rates when booked alongside our OWN DJs because we take care of all their sound (so they simply arrive and plug straight in to our own equipment) - saving you hiring two sound systems. This also makes the evening run completely smoothly as we've worked together so many times. We find the best playing duration is to perform 3 sets of half an hour. That way it allows the music to evolve (as they play half an hour on, half an hour off). That way, each time they start it's a different style and they build up the tempo, starting on pop/Motown etc and developing into the more dance classics later on.

What we do and FAQ's

How long does it take you to set up?
About half an hour

How much performance space do you need?
Width: 2m x Depth:2m

Are you happy to perform outside?
Yes, weather permitting. Ideally not in direct sunlight.

Can you learn requests or a first dance?
Yes, with two weeks’ notice ideally.

How long do you play for?
A drinks reception is typically 2x 45 minutes. For the evening disco/Ibiza style we recommend 3x 30 minute sets.

Do you provide your own lighting?

What do you do during your break(s)
I can put a playlist on or one of the client’s choosing.

My venue has a sound limiter – is that a problem?
I’ve never had a problem with a sound limiter as I am considerate with volume levels. I can also use a battery powered speaker.

Where are you based?
Essex based covering London, Kent, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and UK

Testimonials and reviews

"Maddy was FANTASTIC! We had never hired a live musician for an event before, so we were not very organised in terms of what music we wanted, ut she played EXACTLY what was needed and checked the whole way through if we were happy. She was amazing with all of our guests from babies to the elderly and everybody left the party agreeing how wonderful she was! I wouldn't hesitate in trying to book her for any other event we do and I would strongly recommend others to use her for all events - she honestly made our day so special - thanks so much!"
Charlotte, 30th Wedding Anniversary Party, Essex

"Maddy was perfect from the beginning to the end. She made sure that her music fits perfectly to the theme and even rehearsed new songs to make the playlist even more special. She is very professional and most certainly knows how to entertain - couldn't recommend her more!
Bianca, Corporate Event, London

"We couldn’t recommend Maddy enough! She was brilliant from start to finish and everyone loved it. She’s so attentive and asked what kind of music I wanted, played one of my favourite songs and asked if anyone had any requests. I’m still getting messages from my friends saying what great entertainment it was. Thank you!!"
Jodie, House Warming Party, Essex

"I hired Maddy for my 50th Birthday party, it was truly a memorable afternoon - I booked her last minute and I had a particular Ibiza vibe in mind, and she interpreted my vision of what I wanted perfectly. She was absolutely fantastic on the day, not only her playing (she is so talented), but how brilliantly she engaged with my family and friends - some of my friends were a little bit tentative to join in, but she made them feel at ease. She incorporated all my dedications seamlessly within her sets, as she plays all music genres. I would not hesitate in booking her again for another event of mine or recommend her to anyone reading this!"
Jane Gulmez, 50th Birthday Party

"Maddy was amazing, everybody loved it. Having her at my daughters 21st got everyone up dancing and it carried on into the night. I had really good communication with her and she was super organised and made the process of booking very simple. I have had lots of messages today from my friends and family saying how much they enjoyed the day So I will definitely be booking again."
Lou, 21st Party

"We contacted Maddy after seeing her perform on a friends Instagram, she was easy to speak with and made us feel at ease with exactly what we wanted throughout our wedding breakfast. On the day wow…. Maddy was better than expected and all our guests commented on how fantastic she was! Thankyou so much for being part of our big day your music was everything we wished for and more! Xxx"
