Awsome Saxophone Player

Fernando was remarkable, first off he was punctual that was a big plus.. Although I had my own equipment, he bought his own gear which sounded really good. He performed well, which topped off the night. Everyone enjoyed the soulfulness that he bought will playing the sax. Great Job Fernando Will book again.

Made the Cocktail Hour

AMAZING. Fernando went above and beyond entertaining our 100 guests at the cocktail hour after our wedding ceremony. He walked all over, played for guests directly, and had an amazing attitude. All of our guests raved about how unbelievable he was. He truly added the classic vibe to our old hollywood wedding. He also learned a jazz version for our main entrance to the reception of "our song" which was originally a rap song called "Knock You Down" by Keri Hilson and Kanye West. He added such fun and class at the same time to the most memorable night of our lives.

Review by Michelle C.

I have booked Fernando for numerous gigs at clubs, restaurants, private parties, charity events and weddings throughout the Bay area. He is extremely talented, so enoyable to watch, professional and truly brings a unique flavor to Tampa. He is excellent performing solo or with a band and is perfect for any event.
