Live Saxophone music for your Wedding Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Reception or Party. Bruce is particularly good at knowing what style of sax playing best suits the moment. Each ceremony and party is unique. Saxophone is perfectly suited to handle this need for flexibility. It can be beautiful, sultry, whispering, powerful, gentle, funky, soulful, rich or raunchy. For example, beautiful classical pieces or loves songs during a wedding ceremony followed by R and B and jazz classics during the cocktail hour.
Bruce recently played a surprise party for my friend. She was late to the surprise and he was willing to work with us! He was on time, presentable, friendly and just an all around pleasure as an added guest. There was only one song that I really requested, however, he did a play list that fit the mold without any direction. Book him for your next party because let's get real- Everyone loves a sax!! Thank you again Bruce for making a party so special and helping create a beautiful memory! I will recommend you to all.
Response from Bruce Elliot Saxophone:
Thank you Jamie! It was fun being part of your outdoor party, and what a beautiful day it was. It was moving seeing your friends emotional reaction to the song you asked me to play. I love moments like that.
Bruce was excellent.
Response from Bruce Elliot Saxophone:
Thanks Herb. I appreciate you calling on me to provide music for your sister's memorial service.
Bruce was fantastic to work with. He is a talented musician and added a lot to our 84th anniversary celebration event.
Bruce was on time and very professional. He did a great job at our Mardi Gras. My seniors really enjoyed him. I would recommend him and certainly have him come again.
Bruce was absolutely amazing to work with. I had to schedule him last minute due to another sax player “ghosting” on me and canceling without warning. He was very understanding and knew exactly what I was going for during my event. He helped me surprise my now husband with our first dance song and did an amazing job during our cocktail hour, I have gotten so many compliments since our wedding! If you are looking for a reliable, very talented sax player, Bruce is where it’s at!! Thank you again Bruce for being part of our big day, we will always remember “can’t help falling in love”!
Bruce was fabulous. Communication was easy and his talent was enjoyed welcoming guests as they arrived and during happy hour.
Bruce was awesome... he played all the songs we wanted. He appeared professionally dressed, was on time & extremely accommodating. He kept in touch with me prior to the service, making sure we were on the same track. I cannot praise him enough...
