Eric played several requested songs outdoors for a funeral with only 2 days notice. Beautiful and memorable.
Eric is a fabulous saxophone player. He made our birthday event very special. I highly recommend him and plan to reach out again for future events.
It was a spur of the moment decision for my daughter to hire a Saxophone player as a surprise for her husband to be to play during the cocktail hour after their ceremony. Having no idea where to even start, we found Gig Salad. Through that, we found Eric. After watching his YouTube videos, we knew he was the right choice for us!
Eric was amazing! He had a great selection in songs and he plays beautifully! He was very professional and even hid during the ceremony so that the groom wouldn't see him! The Groom was thrilled! We heard so many compliments throughout the evening on how much everyone enjoyed Eric and his playing!
I highly recommend hiring Eric for your events!
Thank you Eric and Gig Salad!
