What people say Help

  • Katie played jazz sax at my husband's 50th birthday party and she was excellent!

    Ali, Birthday Party, London, February 2017
  • Katie's performance at my recent birthday celebration was fantastic and really set the party off with a swing. We were treated to a medley of songs all beautifully executed without overly dominating the ambient chatter of our guests....Will definitely be looking for an excuse to have her play for us here again!

    Elisa, Private party, London, September 2016
  • Katie was incredibly professional and my guests commented how much they enjoyed her music. She fitted in incredibly well to the mood of the event and we would be delighted to recommend her to friends and family.

    Cara, Wedding, August 2016
  • Katie provided most of the music at our wedding, and she's an
    accomplished saxophonist, who knows how to create a relaxing and
    enjoyable atmosphere with her performance.

    Susan, Wedding, London, June 2016
  • We were so pleased with Katie. She was great!
