Great Performer, Will Hire Again!

John was extremely professional, was friendly and adapted around our schedule as needed - not to mention he was an excellent musician. He made what is typically a good event and made it outstanding. Definitely recommend John for your next event. We will look to hire him again next year!

Review by Angela P.

John Hughes is a brilliant and exciting sax player with an amazing heart and soul for music. Whether backing up the band or as front runner his ability to take a melody and make it his own makes for not only an entertaining show but an inspiration to those who love music and appreciate someone who can take it to the next level. He's not just playing off the cuff - he is a trained musician, very professional, and a brilliant writer who can both create a masterpiece (only you could write a classical piece about a baby from outer space) and improvise on blues and rock classics in a way that can melt a woman's heart and bring a crowd to its knees. You are the Saxman - The Love Doctor - the quintessential blues note player. Play on!!
