It’s never too early to think about Christmas!!!!!!

Hey lovelies,

I know we’ve been enjoying a heatwave in the UK but I’ve just realised I’m almost fully booked for Christmas!!! I’m always so busy, so if you’ll be wanting to book a female saxophonist for your Christmas party or corporate event, get in touch soon. I’m based in Manchester, but I travel all over the UK and beyond. This summer I’m clocking up the air miles playing in Ibiza, Spain, Italy, Croatia, to name just a few. (More than happy to pop to the North Pole Santa, just in case you’re reading this.)

I love entertaining rooms full of people, with my light up sax, getting them on their feet dancing along. I also love finding the glitziest dresses I can to wear and going all out with my makeup – I’m like the fairy at the top of a Christmas tree… I can’t wait!

There’s always a buzz in the air at Christmas parties and events, especially if I’m there! Having a live saxophonist can make sure your party is extra special and I love working with event organisers to create a set list that’s unique.

I’ve already got one celebrity event booked in this December, but I’m sworn to secrecy. It’s going to be one of the most memorable performances of my career – yikes! I’ve performed for Coleen Rooney and David Attenborough in the past, and some other profile celebrities who wish to remain anonymous. (If you ask me nicely…  )

Love you loads and loads,

May

Introducing the girl gang – fearsome females who get the party started!

Hey lovelies, hope you’re having a fabulous week!

I’ve been sooooo busy, both in the UK and abroad recently, my head is feeling a bit dizzy! This good weather has been incredible, especially for the beautiful couples I’ve had the pleasure of entertaining on their big days – I love being a wedding saxophonist so much.

Licence to thrill

I might be a Manchester saxophonist but I am always ready to travel with my light-up sax and glitzy dresses. For the last two days I’ve been having a well-deserved break back in Bristol… it was needed.

I’ve done 20 events over 20 days in 4 countries this month! It’s been exhausting but the adrenaline rush has been out-of-this-world. Wouldn’t change a thing (aside from the delayed flights!)

Manchester musicians with sass!

In this blog post I thought I’d introduce you to two of my friends and fellow musicians who I collaborate with… so you can get to know them better. They are Manchester based, just so you know which means that we often meet up for prosecco and sushi if we’ve not seen each other for a while. (We adore having a girly catch up!)

This weekend I’m heading to Leeds and Cheshire to get my groove on with my percussionist Rachel and my DJ Emma … who I love to the moon and back. They are incredibly talented, and we perform so well together, we’re a force to be reckoned with. We first met back in 2014 in Manchester and we’ve been best buds ever since.

Together we are Girls That Mix. Think Charlie’s Angels with musical ability! I’ll be on my sax, Rachel will be on her bongos and Emma will be controlling the decks. Last week we had a fun, crazy night… with Joey Essex joining us as he was hosting the VIP party we were playing at!

If you’re looking for a Manchester saxophonist (or a trio of talented Manchester musicians) get in touch and I’ll check my diary. I’d love to add some of my Girl On Sax sparkle to your party or event,

Much love,

May

A Royal Wedding and Jet Setting

Did you love the Royal wedding as much as me? I was performing at a wedding myself in Lancashire on the day so I had to watch it on catch-up but I really enjoyed every moment. Almost cried it was so romantic (and despite it dashing my teenage dreams of marrying Harry I was so happy for Meghan). Slightly gutted that I didn’t get the call to perform but hey ho, I had a lovely day celebrating with Robin and Rachel instead.

My wedding performances are extra special and I’ve been lucky enough to play at some wonderful weddings both here and abroad in the last few weeks. My light up sax and festival clothes have been adding some glitter and sparkly magic to small and intimate venues and big and beautiful stately homes… I really am so privileged to get to do what I love every day (and night). If I wasn’t a professional saxophonist I think wedding planning would be right up my street!

I’m packing my suitcase as I type as I’m jet setting again in a few days, another destination wedding to look forward to. I love getting the party started, whether it’s at a party-island wedding in Ibiza or a super romantic wedding in Italy.

If you’re planning on having your special day in the next year or two, or even 2021 or 2022, please get in touch. My diary does get booked up well in advance and I’ve already received my first wedding booking for 2021. It’s much better to get me pencilled in so that you’re not disappointed… and I don’t miss out on sharing your special day. I will do everything I can to make your wedding even better than your wildest dreams!!!!! I will get the party started and make your guests let their hair down.

Have a mooch around my website, follow me on Facebook or give me a call and we can chat. I’m an award-winning musician so whatever you want, I can deliver. I can suggest songs and you can, so we can create a playlist that’s unique to your wedding.

Much love,

May

Sun Soaked Sax filled weekend!

Hey guys!! I hope you’re having a mega week. Did you have a great weekend in the sun? I certainly did, it was jampacked. I had a blast playing my light up sax at five events, I didn’t get a minute to myself but hey ho, I didn’t mind one bit because I was playing my sax.

You all know I’m crazy about weddings and getting the opportunity to perform at them is one of the best things about being a professional saxophonist. On the Friday, I headed to Preston to get the party started at Sam’s wedding and then I headed to a mansion in Lancashire for a wedding ceremony and canapes on the Saturday afternoon. Yummy!!!

In the evening, I got all glittered up in my sparkles to head to a gorgeous bar called 1842 for another wedding, it was incredible. I ended the weekend with a wedding in Cheshire! Every wedding is special and unique, but what they all have in common is love. I form such a bond with the brides, I honestly feel like an honouree bridesmaid sometimes and I have been known to get a little tear in my eye as everyone is so happy and loved up. I love making friends with the couples I perform for at weddings, it makes a real difference!

I’m a saxophonist for hire that doesn’t just do weddings. In between the weddings I played at a Bat Mitzvah in Manchester. It was a lovely day for a very special little girl!

My diary for this year and next is filling up fast so if you want me to sprinkle some sax magic on your event, please get in touch soon. I don’t want anyone to be left disappointed.

Love you loads,

May

PS It’s another Bank Holiday this week and it looks like it will be just as busy. I hope we get the same, Ibiza-like weather. I love the sun! …… I’m off to Ibiza on Monday so all I can think about is SUN SUN SAX

I’m in love with the sun, sea… and my sax of course!

How is spring treating you? I’ve eaten sooo much chocolate since Easter but I polished off my last Easter egg yesterday and I’m trying to be good… for a week at least.

I’ve been having such a blast, bringing my female saxophonist sass to parties up and down the country – and across Europe. I’ve clocked up so many miles this year already that it’s making my head a bit dizzy just thinking about it – but flying to amazing destinations is a dream. I feel like pinching myself.

Playing at Sportsvest in Croatia was out-of-this-world, it made my soul shine! I could have burst with excitement, adrenaline and sequins as I got the party started – whether I was by the pool or in the club… each performance was out of this world. Being a female saxophonist is the best job in the world! I get to collaborate with some amazing DJs and during my time in Croatia I performed with DJs Kieran Lambe and Sean Harrington for the poolside summer sessions! Everyone was dancing in the water to my favourite sax tunes ….. Jubel by Klingande and This Girl by Kungs!

I’ve been privileged to play at the sweetest, most romantic weddings of late and it’s made me even more loved up than usual. I’ve also brought Ibiza vibes to an extra special hen do – gosh we partied till late that night. My feet were aching the next day but it was so worth it. I love showing off my light up sax and getting everyone super pumped.

My diary is filling up with only a few weekend dates left this summer so if you want to book me for your event, please get in touch ASAP. I don’t want you to miss out!

Lots of love

My heart races for Ibiza!

I can’t believe how fast this year is flying, it’s almost time for the clocks to spring forward. It might be a bit harder to get up on Sunday 25th, losing an hour’s sleep is never easy (especially if you didn’t stop performing until the early hours) but I can’t wait. Longer days and lighter nights means more time to bring my Girl On Sax sparkle to incredible venues and events.

I love being an Ibiza sax player and I’ve got so many opening parties and closing parties to look forward to. I love get the party started at Sol House Ibiza and Plastik Ibiza. I also love dancing all day and night with my DJ EMA on the decks at Ocean Beach Ibiza and Space Ibiza. Ibiza pool parties are unforgettable, whether I’m stood playing on my glittery platform or floating around the pool on a giant flamingo – I love making an entrance and bringing some saxophone melodies to the party.

There is no place in the world like the white isle, Ibiza is THE place to party and it has truly captured my heart. I’ll forever be an Ibiza sax player – my sequins, sparkle and unique light-up sax are instantly recognisable but it’s my sound that I’m famous for. I’m a musician first and foremost, getting people dancing and having the time of their lives is what makes me a happy bunny!

I’m soooo looking forward to seeing what Sigma and Bakermat have planned this summer and of course, there’ll be plenty of Ibiza royalty in the audiences of my shows. From Orlando Bloom to Justin Bieber, Leonardo Di Caprio to David Guetta, Ibiza brings so many people together from the world of showbiz every year. Carl Cox will no doubt be spending the summer here, as will countless footballers. It’s so cool getting to meet celebrities and have the privilege of entertaining them for a few hours. Sometimes I feel like I need to pinch myself, I’m living my Ibiza dreams.

Love you loads, go be your own kind of amazing,

May

Let’s jet off together!

I do love a good wedding, especially if it’s somewhere incredibly romantic abroad. I’ve been privileged enough to bring my Girl On Sax sparkle to weddings across the world, from Italy to Croatia, Spain to the Philippines. I may have played at countless weddings abroad but I still get goosepimples every time I make my way to the airport, clutching my well-stamped passport and my light-up sax in its case.

PS Harry and Meghan, your wedding might be in Windsor, but if you want me at your Royal wedding, just let me know!

Welcome to 2018!

Hello everyone! I hope all your wishes over Christmas came true!. After a well deserved few days off I’m back on the road with my light up sax. I’m sooooooooo excited about some of the gigs I’ve got lined up, I’m literally jumping up and down for some of them – trying to not wish the weeks away.

I’m particularly excited to announce that I’ll be playing sax in Croatia and Spain this summer for Sportsvest!!!!! I can’t wait to be catching some rays, I love the winter time but I’m desperate for some sun. Hopefully I’ll be performing at some incredible weddings in hotter climes this year too, and maybe a corporate party or ten!

Did you get engaged over Christmas and New Year? One of my closest pals did and I’m really excited for her. If she needs inspiration she knows who to call as I’ve been privileged to play at some supercalifragilisticexpialidocious weddings in unforgettable venues. In the last week alone, I’ve performed at a wedding in the jaw-droppingly beautiful Gorton Monastery in Manchester and another at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire. (Peckforton has stolen my heart – it’s truly magical and just being there made me feel like a princess).

I can’t wait to see what else 2018 has in store for me – I’m loving every minute so far. I am certainly looking forward to my first charity gig of the year, those nights are always so moving and I get to see first hand what wonderful work charities do for people who need their help for example the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. Nights with my DJ sis EMA are always wild and a bit crazy, we know how to get a party started and get people dancing until dawn.

My phone hasn’t stopped ringing and email bookings are coming in thick and fast so if you want some Girl On Sax sparkle at your 2018 wedding or event, get in touch pronto so I can pop you in my diary. I wouldn’t want you to be disappointed, and I don’t want to miss out either. Let’s make sure 2018 is the best year of our lives… who’s with me!!!!!!

Lots of love

Signing off for the year

This year has been sooooo busy, and I’ve loved every minute! In December alone I’ve had 38 gigs, a new record for me. I can’t possibly choose a favourite performance of 2017, but here are some of my most memorable nights (and days)…

Playing at Sparkle in the City in support of the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity in December! This was an incredible event at The Midland Hotel in Manchester. So much money was raised for this worthy charity – so glad to have been invited to take part! I’ve performed at lots of amazing charity shows this year – including Breast Cancer Now with the incredible String Infusion violinist Emma Rushworth!

So many great Ibiza vibe nights too! I loved opening new super club Lazy Lizard with my DJ sis EMA! Other Manchester gigs I’ve loved include a corporate night with TUI (this made me want to go on my hols so much). I’ve loved playing sax at Venus and Revolution Deansgate Locks where we partied until 6am!

I had the honor of playing sax for a very famous artist for an art gallery… and he offered to paint my portrait… It was extraordinary waking in Roald Dahl’s house before a weekend of gigs… “If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely” something I think is really true!!

Being part of a couple’s wedding day is always super special and gives me goose bumps! Weddings are magical and being there to entertain on the best day of a bride and groom’s life makes me want to pinch myself. It’s also a great responsibility, that I take really seriously, and it’s so great to make them and their guests so happy.   I love it when my light up sax is shining as brightly as the sparkly wedding backdrop!!! Have I got a favourite wedding performance of 2017… that’s a tough one. I’ll have to have a think!

I’ve been to some amazing venues this year but it’s the people that make a night unforgettable. Standing on podiums and everyone going crazy, they’re the best shows. Spending time in Italy, Greece, France, Switzerland, the Philippines and not forgetting the White Isle of course… it’s been a year that’ll be hard to beat!   

Have a wonderful Christmas and see you in the New Year,

Love you loads, go get your sparkle on!

Wedding Entertainment

Have you started Christmas shopping yet? I’m usually a bit last minute but this year I’ve started early. Trying to think of something incredible for everyone on your list can take a while, especially for those who have everything and I’ve got such a busy runup to Christmas.

One of my favourite Christmas activities is my wrapping night – I love having everything laid out, picking the right wrapping paper, bows and decorations, having a glass of my favourite tipple and a mug of indulgent hot choc, while listening to cheesy Christmas music of course!  

I love giving gifts, when the person undoes the glittery bow and peels back the tissue paper to reveal something extra special, it makes me feel so warm and fuzzy inside. Christmas is the most special time of year and it’s no wonder it’s when lots of couples decide to get engaged. Saying “I do” under the mistletoe is so romantic, and an engagement ring certainly is an unforgettable Christmas gift.

If you’re one of the lucky ones

As soon as the shops open on Boxing Day, you’ll probably rush out and buy as many wedding magazines as you can for inspiration. Whether it’s planning an engagement or the wedding itself, it pays to get organised. I love being a wedding saxophonist so I get goosebumps whenever my phone rings between Christmas and mid-January.

I might be based in Manchester but I’ve had the privilege of being the saxophonist for weddings all over the UK and the world. It doesn’t matter if it’s an over-the-top celebrity occasion or an intimate wedding, every wedding is special and the music you choose has a big part to play.

For some Girl On Sax magic at your wedding, please get in touch as soon as you have some idea of dates, as I do get booked up.

Much love,

May xxx
