Hire Girl on Sax as part of Girls That Mix – all trio, no trouble!

You might have heard of Girl on Sax, but have you heard of Girls That Mix yet? This truly unique trio features yours truly on sax, with bongo gal and female DJ on the decks.

Together we create vibes that will have your dancefloor packed throughout our set, with dance DJ mixes backed up by live drum beats and my own iconic light-up sax making my way around the crowds.

It’s a party experience like no other, ideal for stage performances and if you want me to move around and mingle with your guests, as my glowing saxophone provides the perfect centrepiece for selfies and celebrations.

Three unique talents

Girls That Mix gives you not one, but three unique live music experiences for your party:

  • Girl on Sax (that’s me!), a live saxophonist with light-up saxophone and wireless microphone allowing me to go anywhere in amongst your guests.
  • Bongo gal, a party percussionist who plays gigs all over the world from exotic
    locations to events closer to home.
  • Female DJ – a talented live DJ and beats maker, another globe-trotting party girl!

It’s an all-female line-up with contemporary style perfect for modern party entertainment bookings, and we work well together having played plenty of past gigs as a trio.

Parties, gigs and corporate events

Girls That Mix are available now for summer bookings for all kinds of parties, gigs and corporate events in the UK and internationally.

If you have an event coming up and you want to book unique entertainment that your guests will remember for a long time, this talented trio is the clear first choice.

We love what we do and our infectious enthusiasm will bring the energy and entertainment to your event, whether it’s a private party, product launch, wedding reception or corporate
gig.

Want to know more?

To find out more about Girls That Mix, just get in touch! You’ll find us on all the usual social networks as a trio.

If you want a taster of our music, check out our Instagram!

Our style is a powerful mix of modern music, beats and live sax to keep your party going.

It’s quite unlike anything you’ll see or hear elsewhere – and it’s hard to explain the effect we have when we walk into a party or gig together, until you see it for yourself!

Pool party sax player for overseas bookings

When it comes to making overseas bookings for a pool party saxophonist, remember me!

I’m a familiar face at pool parties the world over, and especially in the traditional holiday hotspots like the party island of Ibiza.

Ibiza pool parties really are an experience to remember and it’s a great joy every time I receive overseas bookings to head to the Balearics with my light-up sax.

With the option to play sax with a live DJ, I’m more than most pool party sax players – I’m a live in-person dance party experience that will get everyone up on their feet!

Why book a sax player for a pool party?

With a poolside sax player, nobody misses out on feeling involved. My sax is fitted with a wireless microphone, so I can go anywhere and my music can still be heard from speakers inside and out.

That means I can take the pool party to the people – if they’re mostly in the pool or alongside it, I can play there, and if they move indoors for any reason, I can go with them.

Hire an experienced Ibiza saxophonist

Girl on Sax is a truly global sax girl. I’ve played private and corporate gigs all over the world and am a particularly experienced Ibiza saxophonist with a long track record of playing sax on Ibiza’s dancefloors, rooftops and poolsides.

It’s an incredible honour to get to do the thing I love in some of the most stunning holiday hotspots all over the world, and I absolutely love getting international bookings for a sax player for pool parties and any other event you might be planning.

If you want to check my availability, discuss a particular idea for a pool party or similar event, or you’re ready to make a booking, just get in touch and I’ll be happy to talk through whatever you need.

Travel is not a problem – I’m often in Ibiza for sax party bookings anyway, and I can arrange to be wherever else you might need me, so please don’t hesitate to ask, no matter where your pool party is going to take place!

Beach party sax hire in England and abroad

Summer is finally here following the hottest June on record, and that means it’s the perfect time to plan a beach party whether it’s a corporate event, a seaside wedding or just for fun!

You don’t have to leave the country – I get plenty of enquiries about beach party sax hire in England as well as from abroad, and of course a good number of bookings to be a beach party saxophonist in Ibiza too.

I’m more than happy to travel to wherever you need me to be so if you’re planning a beach party in a far-flung exotic location, don’t hesitate to ask if I’ll come play sax for you there!

Why hire a saxophonist for a beach party?

If you’ve seen any of my videos on my Facebook page you’ll know how much fun my live sax performances are and how people love to get involved dancing, singing along and taking selfies.

It’s a great way to make any party memorable, but there are particular reasons why to hire a saxophonist for a beach party too.

Because I’m not connected via wires, I can go anywhere – I can move freely around your party even on large beaches, mingle with crowds and small groups equally well, and make sure everyone gets some attention over the course of my set.

You’ll often find your guests congregate around me though, and on a wide open beach this can help to give your party a beating heart as everyone flocks to the sound of my sax!

Performing on the beach

I am a beach sax player who’s amplified to speakers so wherever I go, the music can still be heard in a specific part of the beach.

This helps to create a central space for your party without tying me down to that area, which really does give you the best of both worlds across the full extent of your beach party.

I accept bookings for corporate beach parties, private parties like beach birthdays and oceanside anniversaries, and of course beach weddings.

Weddings on the beach can be some of the most stunning, striking and romantic locations, and a live wedding sax player on the beach during your ceremony and reception is the perfect way to put a memorable finishing touch on proceedings.

Book luxury entertainment for corporate events to make them saxational!

If you’re looking to book luxury entertainment for corporate events this summer (or anytime, really!) you need look no further than my sparkly Girl On Sax vibe.

With my massive tunes, iconic outfits and unforgettable light-up saxophone, I’ll give your corporate guests a day to remember while adding an extra touch of class to your already glittering event!

And because people’s snaps, selfies and videos of my performances often get shared around family, friends and everyone on social media, there’s an excellent chance that you’ll get some extra publicity for your corporate party or product launch in the process.

I am a talented saxophonist for hire and will bring a party atmosphere with a high degree of professionalism, whatever your event may be.

Live music lights up any event!

My unique illuminated saxophone isn’t the only thing that will be lit up – with my live music sessions and energetic sax solos, your party will be totally alight too!

Live music for corporate events helps to break the tension and allow those in attendance to let their hair down.

And that can often make for a better networking environment, or encourage people to leave with a positive impression of your brand or product.

Of course when you book live entertainment for corporate events, it’s all about putting the right image forwards, which is why luxury corporate entertainment like mine is often the best choice.

Working with your brand identity

My corporate event credentials speak for themselves, with highly successful past partnerships with brands like Range Rover, Vogue and Hello Magazine, among many many others.

I’m totally wireless – but still amplified – so you get the benefits of me being able to work the room and still have everyone able to hear my performance.

You might have booked a close-up magician for corporate events in the past, but I’d love to be your first close-up saxophonist!

I can even help with the music planning if you wish – I provide professional music event planning services based around my performance, so please ask if you want my input.

I can play alongside a DJ, violinist or percussionist – it doesn’t have to be just me and my sax – so again, if you’re looking for a more specific kind of performance, just ask and let’s make your next corporate event magical and memorable for all who attend.

Sax-by-sea?? Girl on Sax sets sail!

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!

Book all-inclusive entertainment with a wedding saxophonist

Hello my lovelies, spring has well and truly sprung, the sun is high in the sky, and the season of love (the season of weddings) is upon us! I know this because more and more of my summer bookings are to play sax at wedding receptions.

Often when people contact me to book a wedding sax player, they ask about hidden costs, extra fees and other things that might bump up the price they pay for my wedding sax services on the day.

In fact, as far as possible, I prefer to quote a fixed price upfront so you know what you’re getting and how much it will cost.

Why? Well as an experienced wedding saxophonist, I know how important it is to bring your big day in on budget. I don’t want to complicate your day – I just want to make it one to remember! – which is why I’m proud to provide all-inclusive wedding entertainment that takes into account everything you need.

 

What does a wedding saxophonist cost?

Now that’s the big question! Unfortunately asking how much a wedding saxophonist costs is a bit like asking how much a wedding itself costs – it really depends on what you need.

As standard I suggest 90 minutes of actual sax playing, spread over three hours in total, but this can vary depending on what time of day your ceremony takes place, and whether you want me to play at the drinks reception, wedding breakfast and/or evening reception.

There are other details too, such as where the ceremony will occur – I don’t just travel all over the UK, I also often play sax at weddings in Ibiza, plus bookings elsewhere in Europe and around the world!

Finally, do you want me to play solo, or do you want other accompaniment? I work with DJs, percussionists and violinists, among other musicians, so if you have something specific in mind and want me to put a band together, I can do that for the right price too.

All you need to do is let me know the details, and I’ll quote you a price for my wedding sax services taking everything into account upfront.

You can fill in my enquiry form on my website, email may@girlonsax.co.uk or give me a call on 07740 192973 for a chat. Unless I’m off somewhere playing sax, I’ll be happy to talk you through your options!

How to plan your wedding entertainment

A lot of times when people call wanting to book a wedding sax player, they’re not sure about the set up for the equipment we bring, I know most of you have never needed to know how to plan your wedding entertainment before!

It’s a little different planning for a wedding saxophonist and DJ than it is for other types of entertainment, and I like to think I make it as easy as possible, as I bring the sax, the sequins, the lights etc.

Here are some of the top things to think about when planning wedding entertainment:

Stage

Where do you want your wedding reception entertainer to be located? Will they stay in one place or move around?

As a wedding reception sax player I can do either – some people like me to be in the spotlight while others want me to move around and mingle in with their guests.

I’m happy to do either, just let me know ahead of time so I can make sure I’m in the right place!

Lights

You want your entertainment to be seen, so think about how to light them up. Again this is a very personal choice – some go for a retro disco lights look, or a magical fairy lights setting.

In my case, I have a light-up saxophone, so even if there’s no spotlights, fairy lights or disco lights, you won’t miss me!

First Dance

One of the most important moments in your wedding reception is your first dance, so think about whether you want your main entertainment to be a part of this.

Some people like to play a favourite song, while others want a live performance from a singer, band or solo musician (like me!).

You might not realise you can actually have both – often when I play my sax at wedding receptions and club nights, I’ll play along to tracks chosen by a DJ, so I’m very open to requests if you want your first dance to involve a particular backing track AND live sax.

Enjoy it!

The most important thing is for your wedding reception entertainment to give you a night to remember, and that’s where I come in.

I love my wedding sax player bookings, it’s such an honour to be a part of people’s big day and the atmosphere is always absolutely buzzing.

So if you want to give your guests a wedding reception they won’t forget in a hurry, book Girl on Sax today and let’s create the perfect party atmosphere together!

Why settle for less when you can hire a saxophonist for your club?

Ibiza has some of the world’s best DJs but if you want your club to be remembered, you have to stand out in that world-class crowd – and that’s where I come in!

When you hire a saxophonist for your club, and especially when that club sax player is the one and only Girl on Sax, you really make a statement that people will remember for a long time to come.

I make myself unmissable, with my bright military-themed outfits and my light-up sax, and I can go to the very heart of your dancefloor and mingle with the customers down there.

This gives them a unique and unforgettable experience – a club sax player right there dancing alongside them, not a distant figure on a stage or in a DJ booth (although I’m happy to take centre stage too!).

A truly global club sax player

While I am probably best known as an Ibiza sax player, I take bookings from all over the world, including back home in the UK.

So wherever you may be, if you’re looking to hire a saxophonist for your club that people will remember and recognise! – then I’m your girl (on sax).

Please let me know if you’re interested in booking a dancefloor saxophonist for an upcoming club night, or even for several events over the course of a summer season, and we can discuss my availability.

At the same time, I also take wedding saxophonist bookings which typically get busier during the summer months, as well as being a sax player for corporate events like press launches, so I do get booked well in advance.

What do you get from a club saxophonist?

When you book Girl on Sax you get a unique experience – a club saxophonist with seemingly limitless energy and enthusiasm and a truly polished act that I have perfected over years of playing corporate gigs and packed dancefloors alike.

You get me and my sax for an agreed amount of time, usually one or more sets with breaks in between so I’m still at my best for the end of the night.

I come complete with lights and costume, making it easy to spot where I am in a crowded club, and helping me to stand out on stage if I’m not down at floor level.

We can also discuss booking my DJ, which is a common feature of my club sax bookings, so I can play along with contemporary dance tracks and give your customers an experience that is memorable and unique!

Book Girl on Sax for weddings in Ibiza!

I am dedicated to creating a unique, lavish and energised party experience from destination wedding on the white isle of Ibiza to club appearances all over the UK. This summer I’ll be heading over to Ibiza for some incredible Girl on Sax performances!

Regular followers of my adventures on this blog will know I spend much of the summer months in Ibiza each year, playing my light-up sax on the dancefloors and roof terraces of this incredible island for all kinds of parties and events.

But first and foremost I am a wedding saxophonist, I just love being there to celebrate with the bride and groom and all their family and friends, and there’s no better location to do that than the stunning scenery of Ibiza.

What do you get from a wedding saxophonist in Ibiza?

When you book me as your wedding reception sax girl, we can work out exactly what you need, but there are a few things I offer as standard:

  • 90 minutes of wedding sax tunes spread over 3 hours.
  • Option to book a DJ, violinist, singer or percussionist to accompany me.
  • Bookings welcome for ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions.

I’ve played more than my fair share of Ibiza weddings and receptions, as well as all kinds of other events and occasions on the island, so I understand that you might want to do things a bit differently for your wedding!

So if you’ve got something unusual planned for your ceremony, I’ll fit right in – just get in touch and let me know what you’re working on, and I’ll let you know if I’m the wedding sax girl to help make your dreams come true 😀

When does summer season start in Ibiza?

Why wait?? If you’ve booked a wedding in Ibiza and are looking for the perfect wedding reception entertainment, just contact Girl on Sax and I’ll let you know if I’m available on your big day!

The main summer season in Ibiza lasts from May right through to October, but the Balearics get great weather all year round so a winter wedding in Ibiza is a great choice!

As we know, it’s an island with plenty of stunning scenery, sun-drenched beaches and outdoor locations, but also a huge variety of indoor venues from churches to hotels to clubs, so there’s always somewhere to take the party.

With your very own sax girl leading the way on my unmissable light-up saxophone, there’s no fear of anyone being left behind!

What’s trending in 2019 wedding themes this summer?

Summertime is here! The sun has got his hat on, and so have I, as I get ready to play sax at wedding ceremonies and receptions in the UK and abroad as a world-famous wedding saxophonist!

Let’s be honest, this is the best time of year, and I try to make sure I get a good balance between my bookings as an Ibiza sax player and as a wedding sax girl too – so if you’re planning a wedding in Ibiza, that would be PERFECT.

If you ARE planning a wedding this summer, I’m sure you want it to be bang on-trend, so what’s trending in 2019 wedding themes now the sun’s back in the sky??

Sunny scenes

Even the colour schemes are super sunny this summer, as coral is the colour of the year for 2019.

This firm favourite for bridesmaid dresses over the years is strongly in style for the coming months, and its beautiful pink-orange shades are the perfect way to symbolise the sunrise of a new and happy union between bride and groom.

Dressed to impress

2019 wedding dress trends are on the sleek and simple side, similar to the recent Royal wedding dresses.

Meanwhile for the men, waistcoats are firmly in fashion (I blame Gareth Southgate!) as three-piece morning suits are making a massive comeback in 2019.

The good news in both cases is that these outfits are ideal for a party, the men’s jacket tails add some extra bounce to their dad-dancing moves while the bride can join in without fear of anyone treading on her train.

Insta-friendly entertainment!

Weddings are all about colour, whether it’s a simple one-colour scheme for everything from the cravats and bridesmaids’ dresses to the flowers and chair covers, or a rainbow of confetti and ribbons festooning your ceremony or wedding reception.

It’s not ALL about Instagram, but as many of us have online friends and family all over the world, it doesn’t hurt to have a few instagrammable shots to share on social media for those who can’t be there in person.

You can’t get much brighter than my light-up saxophone, so if you’re thinking of hiring a wedding sax player, look no further! I’ll keep your wedding reception rocking and pose for photos and videos with your guests too, so everybody has something to share.
