A tremendous thanks to Edmond, who helped make my dear friend's birthday in Houston so special. As we're social distancing in different cities, many of us were on zoom, and I arranged with my friend's sister for Edmond to come over during dinner (social distance of course) and surprise my friend with music. Edmond replied timely to all my questions as we were arranging, and my friend and her family were blown away (as we were!) Edmond, although we were witnessing your music from Toronto, Montreal, and Madison, we enjoyed every moment - thank you!
Incredible service, on time, made this a moment we will never forget.
Edmond Baker Jr. gave a brilliant performance. The smooth sound of his saxophone music made our hearts soar and feet tap. It was truly excellent!! Maureen
Edmond Baker Jr. gave a wonderful performance for our housed-in residents. Social Distancing has been challenging for folks and we wanted to brighten their day with some Saxophone tunes. Edmond, you were Superb!!
Thanks again for the joyful tunes and making the day just a little bit Brighter! Maureen
Wow and wow...the evening with him was far and above what we could have imagined. Truly was blessed by his talent and in awe..we will be definitely be hiring him for future events and have referred him to others.
Uptown Saxman was GREAT! He was so professional and his music was beautiful. He added so much class to my event (1/25/2020). My guest and I truly enjoyed his music. If you are looking for a talented and professional saxophonist look no further.. Uptown Saxman is your guy! Thanks Roslynn
Versatile; very accommodating to our numerous requests.
Especially grateful for the duets with Mom on the piano!
I hired Edmond Baker Jr to perform at our family reunion June, 24 at the Marriott Hotel in Houston, Texas. We got the DJ package where he performs with his son. They were a fantastic duel. Edmond Saxophone playing was perfection and his son Darin singing and dancing was magical. I had almost everyone asking me if he was lip syncing. They added the very special touch our family reunion banquet needed. Our next reunion is in Las Vegas and we are going to do our best to get them to Vegas to perform again. As the organizer of the reunion, I am forever indebted to them for making me good.
I am not one to write reviews, But for this I will.
Edmond .. you were professional on time and courteous. Our 8th anniversary will be one to remember because you put your special touch with the sax.
We will definitely be using you again in the future!
Saxophonist was more than anticipated had priceless performance. Professional and elegant performer that is highly recommended if love smooth jazz, blues or other genre played via sax.
AWESOME performance friends and family very impressed. Will definitely request his services again at my next party.
Edmond was wonderful, and made our party a huge success with his music.
He was prompt in responding to our correspondence, very punctual and a great asset to our birthday celebration evening.
Edmond was a professional that I enjoyed working with for this event. He was at the venue early and he was ready to perform. He played for an evening event and it was awesome!! I definitely recommend him for any corporate, social, and business events.
Edmond Baker was amazing! From day one the communication was excellent. He's a busy man and although my event was very small and lowkey, I always felt like a priority. He is very professional and gifted. Thank you Mr. Baker for making my special day even more special!
Edmond played two songs at my wedding. He was great and arrived on time (even early) and fulfilled everything he was hired to do. He is a great musician (sax) and I would highly recommend him.
Edmond was awesome!!! He had the mood flowing from the first song! I will definitely use him again for any future events!
It is my pleasure to recommend Edmond Baker. He is a very talented musician and was a pleasure to work with. He was a hit at our party and everyone loved him. I would definitely hire him for our next special event!

I had the pleasure of listening to this talented man work his magic for hours last evening @ The Moroccan Martini Event in San Antonio, TX. I work many events myself and was hired as an entertainer as well. I know professional entertainment and he is it!!! Classy music and appropriate professional attire. He really puts thought and detail into his work. You will be highly please when you book Edmond Baker Jr for your next event! :-)
Mr. Baker, aka Uptown SaxMan, is an exceptional talent that made the private party booked at my bosses' home a huge success. The ease with which he communicates, very responsive, quite adaptable and agreeable to fluid changes (indoors? outdoors? dress? audience?) he adjusts his repertoire of music to the crowd (to liven up or wind it down) and is in tune to the host as well. Quite an accomplishment! It was a delight to work with Mr. Baker and hope I have a need for his talent again in the future. Outside of his musical talent, he is an honorable, delightful man.
Mr. Edmond Baker, Jr. the "Uptown Saxman" was a hit at our wedding reception! He set a joyful mood and everyone loved him!! We got several compliments about our "DJ/Saxophone artist." To top things off, I, the Bride, did not get the schedule or the song list to him until the night before the wedding!! Mr. Baker was patient, understanding, encouraging, and flexible! He put me at ease. The songs I had chosen for the DJ section did not copy to his computer well, so he had tons of songs with no titles, and he handled the situation calmly and with grace. He managed to play all of the right songs at the right time even without the titles (i.e. Bride and Groom first dance...) and he kept the mood of the reception consistent. I was extremely impressed and definitely recommend his services!! I am also very thankful to have found a DJ that holds our same convictions morally! I did not have to worry about having cussing or unfriendly music!! I loved it!! Thank you so much Edmond!!
Best Sax Player in the Houston area! Great skills and professional attitude. If Edmond does not satisfy you ...Nobody will.
