There's nothing more magical than live music. For my husband's birthday I surprised him with a live performance by this talented musician, Ruben Cantu, who plays everything from Rhianna, Luis miguel, Celia Cuz, to Frank Sinatra. He kept my guests entertained throughout the evening. He showed up on time and even stayed later than required. I will be hiring for events in the future.
Response from SaxMajor:
Maritza and Andrew,
Thank you for inviting me to perform for your surprise birthday dinner for Andrew. It was a pleasure to perform for you and your guests. Your request for cocktail, dinner and dancing was a welcome diversion from COVID. Your review was wonderful. Thanks!
Reuben played for our 100 guest cocktail party and was amazing. He took requests on the fly and played perfectly for 3 hours straight. Would give 6 stars if possible. Thanks Reuben!
SaxMajor was highly professional, very friendly and extremely talented. My guests were so impressed with his ability and he created such a fun environment. His song selection was perfect and he continued to work his set without taking a break. I can't recommend him enough and was very glad we went with him. Don't hesitate, if he's available.. snatch him up!
Response from SaxMajor:
Omid, THANK YOU for a very inspiring review. I was impressed with your guests and your party setup. The best part was your backyard acoustics. Your yard is VERY saxophone friendly. I could have performed for hours!
Working with Ruben was an absolute pleasure! We needed a last minute saxophonist, and he was able to be in touch with me within an hour and perform at our event the very same evening. His song list is extensive and pleased our young and older guests, as well as impress our Hispanic and Indian guests with some Juanes, Marc Anthony, and Bollywood songs sprinkled in between classic American and top 40 hits. Can't wait to work with him again!
He made my gender reveal party so much better. He got there early and set up without requiring much. His mix of music was great!
My residents absolutely loved him.
Ruben was great! Everything went perfectly. He even learned a song that I had requested.
Sax Major was PHENOMENAL! He truly made our party and our guests were raving about his performance all night long. He performed for our annual Christmas party and played an AMAZING variety of music (Christmas, top 40, dance, jazz, Sinatra). He is so talented.
Like I said - I’ll be booking Sax Major for every event moving forward
Ruben was great! On time and a real crowd pleaser. He was our favorite booking for our wedding. Definitely 100% recommend to everyone.
Ruben was phenomenal - we hired him to accompany our DJ during our wedding reception and he was a perfect addition. He played during dinner and early dancing, and even offered to learn to riff over some Persian songs at our request.
He was incredibly easy to communicate with and truly blended right into the event so seamlessly. Thank you for everything, Ruben!
Great player, very supportive and kind.
Sax major was absolutely wonderful! He had a great selection of songs and plays beautifully! Everyone loved the music!
On time, Great Music, Friendly and flexible
very nice!!!! i love the experience!
Ruben was great. He had everyone singing and dancing. We could not have made a better choice and I will definitely book him again for future events. My only regret is not booking him for a longer set.
Just an amazing sax player. Everyone at the wedding was impressed.
Thank you Sax Major!
Saxmajor was Great!! He was on time and all setup to surprise the Groom by playing a song we chose as the couple was announced Mr. & Mrs. He played through the reception cocktail hour. I would recommend him for any event, 5 stars.
Ruben had made our event extra special! He played at our wedding cocktail hour, also walked around during dinner time and everyone loved him and his taste with music! Thank you Ruben!
Strongly recommend Ruben for your upcoming event — his music will create a classy and fun environment in your event.
He was just amazing!!
Sax Major was Awesome, played for a small party of 12 and we all loved him, he played some of our favorite songs and stayed for longer than expected.
Thank you so much Ruben.
We held a company teambuilding activity and Ruben was an incredible performer. So professional, kind and exceptionally talented . He had his performance perfectly planned out and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. I highly recommend and will definitely work with Ruben again.
Ruben is very professional. He was right on time, aptly dressed for the occasion. His music and manner were really liked by all.
He brings with him good quality speakers and mixer with mics.
Reuben was the perfect addition to our Holiday party. He set the mood and ambiance to get everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Ruben did an excellent job at our event! He came dressed nicely in a tux, playing for around 300 people cheering. His rates were very good, and he catered to our every need. I highly recommend him and will have him back again!
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for the kind review. It was a pleasure to perform for you and your guests. The Lagunita Pavilion and Courtyard at the Hotel Maya was a great place to perform. Your special song was the highlight of the evening.
Music was amazing and made our wedding so special! Guests loved him.
I loved Rubéns performance. He was fantastic!
Ruben delivered a great afternoon of pool side entertainment
We couldn't have made a better choice. He was so good that at least 10 invitees commented about it and mentioned calling him for their own events. We had him booked for 1 hour but he went above and beyond that. Extremely punctual person who came in for set up 1.5 hours before the event. You wouldn't find a better and more professional Sax player than him.
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for inviting me to provide entertainment for your corporate mixer at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica. I can tell from my vantage point that everyone enjoyed music. I hope we cross paths again in the future.
Ruben is truly a professional!!! He is a heat saxophonist... he added so much more to my wedding!!!!! I highly recommend him...Thank you Ruben for making our wedding so much more romantic!!!
Ruben was a delight to say the least. He showed up early to setup and started playing right away. His range of music was excellent as well. My guests were impressed and said they need to throw a party just to get him to play at one of their parties! My family and I will definitely hire him again. He played like an angel. Best one man show you can ask for.
We booked Ruben for my mom’s celebration of life. Ruben was easy to communicate with from the beginning, he shared his suggested set list with us beforehand, learned a few songs per our request, and played such beautiful smooth jazz! We would definitely recommend him!
Ruben played at our wedding and he was so great! Couldn’t be happier with the entire experience and he was a great communicator. Song selection was excellent also. We did request a few songs, he played them and added some others that fit perfect. Very professional gentleman!
Response from SaxMajor:
Bobbi and David,
Thank you for inviting me to perform for your wedding and thank you for a very generous review. This was the first time I performed in the mountains. What a wonderful idea to have your wedding in the mountains (near Lake Arrowhead). Everyone from the Arrowhead Pine Rose were friendly and very helpful. A wonderful experience!
An just unbelievably nice evening, thanks to you we had the best time, from the okdest to the youngest. The music was fabulous, your energy and presence was everything you can ask for in a party. Really amazing
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for inviting me into your home. For a party of six (including two little ones), your family really know how to party. I enjoyed speaking to your father about Sweden, Scandinavia, and his move to Spain. You are a very interesting family. I love the Swedish accents and your fluency in Spanish. A very memorable experience.
easy to work with.. adopting to the occasion and great music
Grest performance, great communication . Everyone loved his music.
Ruben is extremely professional and highly skilled. I hired him to honor my Papa at his funeral and everyone thoroughly enjoyed his performance, would definitely recommend and book him for future events.
Ruben killed it! Amazing work, amazing attitude, amazing everything!
Thanks Ruben! N&K loved you and your work!
Ruben is a great performer! Loved having him at my daughter's graduation party. All my guests really enjoyed his services. Would definitely recommend him for your parties. Excellent job Ruben Cantu. Thank you very much!
Response from SaxMajor:
Diane, that was a great party. So many activities for your guests! It was a neat experience performing under the "big top".
He was awesome, everyone enjoyed it. Highly recommend
Ruben was a AWESOME! A true professional.
Showed up early. Learned four new songs for me ahead of time. Took a five minute break and played for three hrs.
Everybody loved him for my 60th!
Book him if you can get him. I will again.
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for including me into your celebration. You had a unique birthday celebration with the feel of a classy cocktail party. Your host was very gracious, the guests were wonderful and YOU were the life of the party.
A wonderful review. Thanks!
I was preparing a surprise for my wife's birthday and Ruben made it just magical. He arrived in advance ti make sure everything's prepared before my wife came. Since we're not a lot into classic music i asked him to play some popular songs and he played Sia, Chainsmokers and Rihanna, it was simply amazing. He also had a speaker playing the music on the background. Though we were on a beach, the sound was heard really well. I definitely recommend Ruben for outdoor performances of this type or any other types events.
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for such a detailed review. It really helps. I can honestly say that your romantic birthday breakfast for Olina was the best gig of this new year and not to be forgotten. What you planned was truly romantic. When you started dancing to my music, it was hard to keep my composure; not without mentioning that this was on a WARM January winter morning.
Best of days to you and Olina,
Ruben was absolutely the best entertainment I ever could have had for our company holiday party! Everyone wanted to know where I found him and wanted his card, because they enjoyed him THAT much. I highly recommend Ruben for any occasion!
Response from SaxMajor:
A big THANK YOU for a sparkling review. This review will reply help my music business. I enjoyed performing for you and your guests at your company holiday party.
His performance was amazing. Everybody loved it. His playlist was a hit. All the songs he played were the most appropriate for the audience. I am still receiving compliments from people about his wonderful performance. The party was a sensation with Ruben playing his tunes. He is the best sax player I'ever seen.
Thanks so much for making my father in law's 90th birthday a great celebration!!
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you so much for such a sparkling review. After listening to Tom Kaiser's life for the past 90 years, he deserved a master performance. Knowing that Tom played the saxophone, I had to be at my best. I loved the Hawaiian theme. Great celebration.
Just amazing!!! Mr. Cantu was the life of the party, I highly recommend him.
Response from SaxMajor:
That was an awesome party. I was glad to be a part of it. I loved the sound acoustics of your patio. It made me want to play all night.
SaxMajor just preformed at my home for a Memorial Day Bar B Q. It was about 20 or so of us. The ages were 5 years of age, up to 73. SaxMajor played music to satisfy every age group. From Frozen, to Chuck Berry! Each age group crowd went WILD at the selection he played!! I also had Elsa there for the kids, he played Let it Go, while Elsa song... Everyone LOVED IT!!!
If you are looking for a universal Saxophonist... SaxMajor is your guy!
Response from SaxMajor:
Lawanda and family,
Thank you so very much for the impressive review. I always love performing for an audience. The response of your guests really made my day. Thank you for choosing SaxMajor.
Ruben was 'very punctual' and adapted to the needs of the event. In my mind, he over-delivered to my expectations. I kept getting compliments from my guests over and over. Ruben, it was fun having you. We will keep you in mind for future services.
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for the wonderful review.
I'm sorry I had to leave so soon, I had to drive 70 miles to the next job. I just barely made it.
Nice location for the party. My wife was asking about it for a future occasion.
SaxMajor put on an amazing show, everyone was singing along, dancing and completely enjoyed the evening. We will differently book Ruben again in the future.
Ruben was FANTASTIC ! ALL of our Homeowners, from the young to the wise really enjoyed the music...... it really made our event special.. THANK YOU RUBEN !
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for the wonderful review. I really enjoyed performing for your you and your guests. I hope I can be of service to you again in the future.
Sorry about the typos. I meant to say. We WOULD definitely hire him again!
We really enjoyed him. He's professional. He's punctual, and stayed in contact with us throughout the process. We had a 50th wedding anniversary dinner for some friends. There was 2 special songs that we wanted him to perform. One of the songs he didn't have, but he went and secured the song and learned it well for the dinner. We enjoyed his performance. He brought 3 different styles of saxophones, and he used them all. He's prices were reasonable too. I wouldn't definitely hire him again. No complaints!
Response from SaxMajor:
Thank you for allowing me into your home to make a memorable moment on your parent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was a pleasure to perform for you and your family. I hope we may do something again sometime.
I am happy and pleased with his service :-)
Ruben put on a great performance during my roaring 20's theme birthday party. He's a talented saxophone player and his music put a special touch to the event. Everyone enjoyed his music very much. I would definitely recommend him.
Ruben was professional and an excellent saxophone player. He played at my wedding reception cocktail hour, and added considerably to the ambiance. He played all of my favorite songs, and was great to work with both before and at the event. I would highly recommend Ruben.
SaxMajor performed at my mothers 50th birthday party. He arrived on time, looked great and played amazing. SaxMajor is very professional. Not only did he respond to all my emails on a timely basis,he gave me the option to select the perfect playlist for mothers birthday party. My mother enjoyed SaxMajor's performance as well as the entire party and we are planning to work with him again in the future!!
Loved his music. Mr. Cantu was very professional, respectful and on time. Would recommend him. Will be booking him again. Thank you Mr. Cantu!
Ruben arrived on a hot sunny California day, prepared and ready to play not one but 3 saxophones. We really enjoyed the style and flavor of the music. I had requested contemporary songs and he offered them with out question. My guests were very happy and he brought the life needed to the party. I will definitely book "SaxMajor" again and my friend said he is going to call him to play at his party too. Thanks to Ruben for making my party a success. He is the topping on the cake.

My Husband and I manage a Community of 329 comes for 55+ Sr's. Ruben caught the atttention of all our resident guest. His entertaining, singing, and Sax playing was enjoyed beyond my expetations! I am booking Ruben for our future events. I want to thank Ruben and his wife Priscilla for being so gracious and professional. They will always be welcome at our Community. Five stars!
We booked Ruben for our Friday Happy Hour and our elderly residents absolutely loved him. Every show is different, this time he changed it up with some singing and saxophone playing, including some great Big Band songs. We will definitely make him a regular at our parties. See you next time Ruben!
Ruben Cantu is a great entertainer!...I am an Activity Director for an Asst. Living Facility for the elderly and they always have a great time when we book Ruben. They love the saxophone music he is able to play for us, and also the great way he gets the crowd to sing-a-long with his songs :)...We will definitely make Ruben one of our regulars for our birthday parties, happy hours, candlelight dinners, etc. Thank You Ruben!...see you soon.
Ruben performed for our elderly residents in our Asst. living Facility for our weekend Happy Hour, they absolutely loved his saxophone music and singing! They have asked me to bring back every other month, and we surely will! See You Soon Ruben!
He is very professional, talented and friendly artists. He was on time and waited patiently even the program a little bit late. I will definitely recommend him to my friend if anyone need a saxophone player. His music were very much appreciated by me, the birthday celebran,t and also my guest. Looking forward to see him again to perform and if I need his service in the future, I will hire him with no hesitation. Nestor Pangilinan June 22, 2013 Event.
Ruben Cantu is a very pleasant and talented performer. He interacts with the crowd and gets everyone involved. Ruben preformed at a Father's day dinner that my facility hosted and many of the guest in attendance commented on how they enjoyed his music. He was instrumental in setting a successful scene for the evening, and boy did he deliver! Ruben showed up early and stayed later then he had to. I am very satisfied with him and have asked him to come back and perform again.
Ruben Cantu played at our Holiday Event on December 13th. He showed up early to set up and started performing 30 minutes before his official start time with only took a minimal break during the two hours of the event. We will definitely add him to our list of preferred performers, he was professional, accommodating, punctual and very talented. We heard nothing but great things about Mr. Cantu from all of our guests.
Ruben was fantastic! He was very well prepared for the event, and played different genres at the Crowne Plaza San Jose, Client Holiday Luncheon. Many clients were asking about him, and I will definitely recommend him to other company's functions. One of the best decisions made.
