Ahoy mateys! It’s your favourite saxophonist for hire here, and this week we’re testing out our sea legs – well, our river legs – as we set sail with the Tattershall Castle Boat.
If you haven’t heard of the Tattershall Castle, it’s a floating bar aboard a refurbished paddle steamer moored on Victoria Embankment opposite the London Eye.
Just a few weeks ago in early 2019 they held their Spring Event on the boat’s Aft Deck, and asked me to pop along and play some live sax.
I’ve played my fair share of gigs as a hired saxophonist for corporate events, but I have to admit the setting moored on the Thames with the London Eye as the backdrop was quite something.
Embark on a saxy adventure!
Boats can be amazing to have a party on! When you hire a sax player like me, you lose very little capacity – me and my sax can work the room (literally!) and fit into the available spaces as I dance around in between your paying guests.
It’s an up close and personal form of live entertainment that sticks in people’s minds, and it frequently makes the right kind of splash on social media too as people love to post pics and videos of my performances.
So if you have an upcoming corporate event or are planning any kind of party aboard a boat, consider hiring a live sax player like me to put on a show.
A sax for all seasons
I must say the springtime setting for this particular event was just stunning – the party started in daylight and as the sun set, the sky behind the London Eye turned into a lovely palette of deep blues and dusky oranges.
But a hired sax is for all seasons, and I’m equally happy to party into the late evening under lighter skies in summer, or turn on the lights on my light-up sax to brighten up a dark winter afternoon!
All I would say is that many of my dates get booked up well in advance, so if you’re planning an event even several months away, let me know as soon as possible to check my availability.
Hopefully I’ll be available, and you’ll be able to welcome aboard your very own seafaring saxophonist for hire at your next corporate event or boat party!
