This man is the truth!!! He played our ceremony and cocktail hour. Although it was just him, you would think he had a whole band behind him the way he played. The mood for the ceremony was set the instant he started playing. His rendition of "all of me" by John legend put an instant tear in my eye. We asked him to learn "still in love" by Beyonce about a month before the wedding. It was the song the bride was entering to. He absolutely nailed it! He captured all the emotion that the song exudes. Both of us were crying like babies. He has large catalog that covers a wide variety of genres. With that, we just gave him the type of feeling we were going for and the genres we didn't want and gave him the freedom to choose what to play for the cocktail hour. We weren't apart of the cocktail hour but from what we could hear, the music was bumping, people were singing along (also he's a great singer), and overall sounded like a good time. Definitely recommend!
Great experience!!! Top notch...
Brandon was incredible , professional and extremely talented. I will hire him again for a holiday party.
Serenading & Saxie was absolutely wonderful at my 50th Birthday Celebration. Everyone was talking about the performance. I would definitely recommend him for your next event. Going forward, he is top of my list for entertainment!
We needed entertainment for my father’s 70th Birthday dinner party. We booked Seranading and Saxie. Brandon was punctual, professional, and did an amazing job. My guest were very complimentary of his set. I would book him again in a heartbeat!
I booked Brandon for our wedding. We had nothing to go off of besides other reviews and a few videos. It was initially a little nerve racking for a big night not meeting somrone prior. However, he was INCREDIBLE. He played the saxophone and sang and stole the show in the process. So many guests commented on his talents. It was the perfect addition for our night. If you're thinking about utilizing him, just do it. You will not be disappointed. We'll never forget the special touch and the passion that he exuded in his performance on our wedding night!
He did a spectacular job at my wedding! He exceeded my expectations and more! He I highly recommend him for any event!! The guests absolutely loved him!! He's totally awesome with amazing gift and talent!!!

Serenading & Saxie was the perfect complement to the reception at the AKA PEARL Award Luncheon. Brandon's smooth sax sound created a classy ambiance and set the tone for the jazz luncheon that followed. He was on-time, courteous, and professionally dressed.
